A new collaboration between two of Australia’s most trusted and innovative interiors brands – Caesarstone and Wattyl – will assist homeowners with inspirational guidance during renovations. By pairing Caesarstone quartz surfaces with Wattyl paint colours, this partnership will allow consumers to receive the latest and most stylish insights into combining colours and materials in surface finishes and fittings for kitchens, bathrooms and open plan living areas.
Homeowners planning renovations are often unable to visualise colour and surface pairings; for instance, white is perhaps the most complex colour to understand and match with other finishes. This collaboration, in which diverse Caesarstone quartz surfaces are paired with Wattyl paint colours, will provide an inspirational guide to many homeowners looking to update their interiors with confidence and flair.
A series of palettes featuring a combination of Caesarstone surfaces and Wattyl paints, paired with metallic tapware finishes from Sussex and door cabinetry from Polytec, will provide the necessary guidance to consumers when carrying out renovation.
The subtle diversity in colour palettes – ranging from crisp whites and soft greys to sublime neutrals and deep, dark charcoals and black – is key to this creative partnership. While neutrals are preferred by most consumers, Wattyl has introduced a few more saturated colours that can be used to the best effect with surfaces and other decorative elements.
The Wattyl-Caesarstone collaboration successfully walks the fine line between personalised colour choices and timeless style. The palettes cater for a wide selection of architectural design themes and consumer demographics – from those who want to learn how to create a customised, on-trend statement kitchen or bathroom to those wanting to nail the effortless style and elegance of a colour palette that is perennially fresh.
“The Caesarstone brand is recognised for its premium durability and the fact that it resists stains and chipping – but we wanted to highlight the fact that these practical features are never at the expense of style and design. Open plan living is a feature of most modern homes, whereby the kitchen, dining and living areas meld seamlessly – so selecting a colour and finishes palette is more complex than ever. We wanted to help the consumer make the best choice, confident that their selection is based on the knowledge and expertise of professional colour specialists. Our collaboration with Wattyl illustrates these inspirational, foolproof design opportunities in a very visual way,” said Linda Hannah, Caesarstone Australia senior brand manager.
“Consumers can lack confidence in their ability to pull a successful colour palette together. They want something that expresses their personality and has the sophistication of a designer-led project – but they are unsure of how to get there. This collaboration has enabled Wattyl, Australia’s longest standing paint brand, to give some really creative – and practical – examples of customised colour pairings. Ones that are foolproof and yet inspirational,” said Sarah Stephenson, colour expert and Wattyl senior brand communications manager.
“This is just the beginning… we have plans to educate, inspire and engage consumers in creating bathrooms, kitchens and living areas that live up to their highest expectations.”
The Wattyl/Caesarstone collaboration can be viewed on the Wattyl website as well as at any Caesarstone showroom nationally.
