Kansai Nerolac announced Wild Berries as the ‘Colour of the Year 2016’


Paints Ltd (KNPL) announces as the ‘Colour of the Year 2016’. Wild Berries as a shade lends itself seamlessly to a discerning, natural impressions in almost any setting.

Wild Berries (inspired by Bor – wild fruit) is a variant of Burnt Brick. It complements Indian designs and multiplies their appeal. This colour is grounded in Indian culture and crafts – from the red soil of the Western Ghats to traditional Indian pottery and to the sloping roofs of South of India.

The beauty of this shade is its compatibility in palettes for both interiors and exteriors. Kansai Nerolac suggests a few ways one can use Wild Berries to beautify their home:

– Paint a wall with the colour and offset it with brightly patterned fabric and neutral flooring. Use it as an accent against lush backgrounds to perk up the space for a nature lover, or as a subtle contrast against old wood, aged metal and pale grey walls in unfinished luxury or classic décor.

– Use Wild Berries for furnishings and accessories to give a pop of colour to an otherwise muted interior. Used as a backdrop, the colour can harmonise objects, accessories and furnishings for a global traveller.

– Painting doors in the warm, welcoming colour will uplift the entire house. The sophisticated and natural earthiness that this colour exudes, makes it a preferred choice for home exteriors both standalone houses and for buildings too.
