The colour you need – The Dulux Colour Trends 2018

The Dulux Colour Trends for 2018 has just been launched and it’s got us going out buying new paint for a home makeover already! With many of us looking to slow down and add more balance to our lives, design will shift from the prescriptive to the more personalised in the coming year. Raw textures and soft neutrals will dominate, juxtaposed with rich, luxurious green and playful, tropical brights – a broad-reaching palette that’s all about individual expression. Colour lovers rejoice!

The 2018 Dulux Colour Trends ‘Balance’ is a collection of globally inspired hues, cocooning combinations, breezy neutrals and folklore-inspired shades that celebrate the traditions of the past and the innovations of the future. These trends include four carefully curated themes: Essential, Kinship, Escapade and Reflect.

This compilation aims to both nurture and inspire, with colours and textures drawn from nature paired with zesty shades that hint at adventures in faraway places. Take a peak below at some of our favourite colour combinations and find out more at Dulux (here).
