With summer well and truly over (please don’t leave us!) it’s now time to look to winter’s interiors trends, with Dulux having released their seasonal forecast.
Inspired by icy landscapes and deep dark forests, neutrals, inky blues and earthy grey beiges from Dulux’s Wildland palette will dominate interiors this season.
Dulux colour and communications manager, Andrea Lucena-Orr, says the Wildland palette is all about creating warmth through texture. “Homeowners might choose deeper shades in dark, earthy colours, such as Dulux Western Myall, with focal points in warmer hues and lighter tones to create a beautiful space. Integrating furnishings in natural timbers and soft fabrics such as fur and wool, juxtaposes the brooding colours, which adds that element of comfort to the space.”
A fresh coat of paint is one of the simplest and most inexpensive way to add colour, personality and achieve a place where you feel comfortable, inspired and happy. “Colour is amazing! It can highlight items you want to focus on and can camouflage the elements you wish to hide,” explains Andrea. “It plays a pivotal role in the home as it helps define the feeling and mood of a space and it so simple to create with a simple painting project.”
Dulux colour experts study trends around the world to develop their forecast, attending trade fairs in Europe, studying product and design innovation, colour and finishes, and emerging global designers.
Tomorrow, Dulux’s creative consultant and stylist Bree Leech shares her style tips for using colour in your home this winter.
