Cairo by Para Paints

Dare to embrace this season's hottest new colour.

This deep indigo blue by Para Paints is perfect for those looking to inject some darkness into their home without going completely black. For maximum impact, design editor Joel Bray suggests painting all walls and trims in this shade — and for those bold enough, the ceiling too. Try a high-gloss finish for a truly mesmerizing look.
