In today’s busy and complex world, it’s now more important than ever to carve out our own special colourful spaces; somewhere we feel we belong. It is essential to create spaces where you feel completely at ease to feed that craving for simplicity and moments of joy.
“We are all trying to reassess how we fit into a new world order that feels fragile and complicated. It might seem daunting to create a new way forward, but it’s also empowering. And where better to start than at home?”, says Palesa Ramaisa, Dulux Colour Expert
“Start with a positive foundation, the newly launched Dulux Colour of the Year, Sweet Embrace ™ is a delicate and optimistic colour, inspired by the softness of feathers and evening clouds. It’s a warm and practical standalone shade, it’s also a great foundation colour that’s ideal for combining with many other shades. Subtle and sophisticated, it takes on different tones in different lights, bringing warmth to north-facing spaces and softness to sunlit rooms. Working with the colours in the supporting new palettes, it offers a wealth of possibilities to create a space that feels just right for you’’, adds Ramaisa.
Colour your workspace for productivity
We need every part of our home to feel familiar and comforting, and the global earthy tones in Dulux’s warm colour story create the perfect backdrop. Here, the burnt orange colour palette which includes the Mild Mocha and Autumn Walks supported by Sweet Embrace creates a colour-flow feature wall for a feeling of personal wraparound softness, subsequently increasing your sharpness and productivity at home.
Create a calming kitchen
Even a busy kitchen can feel peaceful with the right colours. Dulux’s calm colour story is made up of natural greens and blues that can bring a tranquil and fluid feel to a space. Recalling the shades of woodlands and seascapes, these colours are naturally calming and clarifying. Here, two deep greens labelled the Pale Clover and Cheeky Grey set the tone, and Sweet Embrace adds a warm touch to create a quiet space where we can feel peaceful.
Opt for an upbeat bedroom
Mixing dreamy tones of lilacs and yellows, Dulux’s uplifting colour story can help create a fun, upbeat and friendly backdrop without overpowering your bedroom.
