The latest decorative textures collection by Royale Play from Asian Paints, offers a play of colour, pattern and material to dial up the sophistication of your interiors
As a brand that has always been keyed into the importance of all the elements that transform spaces, Asian Paints has displayed an unwavering commitment to creating tasteful, personal homes. And when it comes to decorative paints, it undeniably sits pretty at the top of the pile of paint brands. True to form, then, the latest from the brand is the high-end Luxe collection by Royale Play.
The collection distils the idea of interior paint as a covetable decorative accent, to go beyond simple functionality into a realm of bespoke textures that redefine interior design. The range is a unique concoction of materiality and pattern play, tailor-made for contemporary homes. The collection is diverse enough to appeal to equally diverse tastes; you have 10 finishes to choose from, in a palette of singular shades, as avant garde as they come.
That’s not the only thing that sets this collection apart, though. If you’ve got a soft spot for the idea of making a statement with that accent wall, then the Luxe finishes up the ante by several notches. These finishes are all about redefining that ‘one-wall’ concept. They are subtle enough that you can use a combination of finishes across all your walls in permutations that you like and in the rooms you’d like to see them in. That’s not even the end of it, because these finishes are versatile enough to also work with any and every kind of material accent you might use for your walls. It could be that wooden jali that you have your eye or, or that metal-accented open shelf for the wall wrapped in a Luxe finish. Anything you pick will have that ideal backdrop with any of these finishes.
Let’s take a closer look at the many variations and combinations from the Royale Play Luxe collection to wrap your home in—and, of course, elevate your décor.

It’s also available in a variety of hues and effects, making it ideal to play up the walls of your spaces.
