Combining the classicism of traditional, earthy hues with a splash of bright colour, Dulux continues to inspire with its new Autumn colour palette titled Future Past.

The decadent collection combines luxurious browns (Dulux Loose Leather is a standout), earthy greens (Dulux Pickled) and a splash of salmon for a modern twist – Dulux Pretty Primrose is a delicious shade of warm pink.
“While the 2016 Autumn palette can be seen to comprise stronger hues, don’t be afraid to add a darker colour into your home. The warmth these colours can add will transform any space and make it feel more inviting and snug, creating a cosy room to cocoon in during the colder seasons,” says Andrea Lucena-Orr, Dulux colour expert.

This colour collection combines traditional shades with contemporary ones, a trend that can be applied in a general sense throughout the home. “Celebrate antiques, heirlooms and traditional décor in a modern setting. Update older pieces with new finishes such as upholstery in bold colour or pattern, or a coat of paint to add a modern colour twist,” says Bree Leech, Dulux creative consultant and stylist.
As for interior styling in the cooler months, Andrea has some words of advice. “Ensure you love the colours you select for your home, and that the hues you select will work with your space, especially with lowering light in Autumn,” says Andrea.
