4 Stunning Themes in the Dulux Paint Colour Forecast
I love this time of year; not only do the home and furniture stores release their new collections, but the paint companies conduct their colour forecasts, showcasing some stunning imagery to accompany their new-season paints. This year, Dulux has outdone itself in the styling and photography department, with four themes to knock your socks off!
This theme, in its simplest form, is about the environment and colours that reflect the landscape (think mountains, forests and ice terrains). There’s a lot of neutrals, soft hues and chalky greys and blues, which lend themselves to application on interior walls perfectly. If you’re looking for a paint colour to splash on your walls that isn’t as plain as white but isn’t going to slap you in the face, a shade from Wildland is a smart move because there’s a calm quality at play here.

The idea with this theme is that it’s calm and inviting. There are a lot of different colours in this collection but the tone has been kept tinted to create sorbet colours, in places, and shaded to take traditional colours in a richer direction. The combination of a few of these colours would create a space that feels soothing, which means they could work well in a nursery or kids’ space. I can see some of those blues, pink and purples coming to life on the wall of your little one’s room!
Naturally, I’m most smitten with this theme, because I adore the vibrancy of the colours (don’t they make you feel happy?). Colour blocking and a sense of explorative fun is the direction this collection is heading in, with high-velocity hue that would work well in a space you wouldn’t spend a heap of time in; a hallway, powder room or pantry could transform into your home’s wow moment if you adopted a few of these daring shades. Would you dare?
The Earthwerks theme taps into our desire to have greenery in our homes and the urge to get our hands dirty. One look at the colour palette and you can see what Dulux means. Rich greens, dirty browns and moody blues are evoking a real sense of nature – with colours that would give a calming effect to living spaces, bathrooms and kitchens. The blues in this collection are my favourite.
