Create a comforting home with Dulux Colour of the Year 2018

 

Easy ways to transform your home using the latest trend colours inspired by nature

 

Do you love a cosy atmosphere? Combine the warm pink tone of Heart Wood – the Dulux Colour of the Year 2018 – with cocoa, clay and blush pink for an earthy colour scheme that will create a snuggle-in atmosphere throughout your home.

 

Nurturing natural shades

 

 

Many of us want curl-up comfort in our bedrooms, so a large expanse of Heart Wood is perfectly set off by a coffee or terracotta shades trim. Use it to add visual interest with a two-tone wall or to frame windows or skirting boards. If you want to complete the room’s look, leather, rich wood colours and a touch of metallic are recommended.

Layered colours in your kitchen

 

 

A pairing of the soft pink of Heart Wood and a milky cocoa is ideal for creating a sense of warmth in even the most minimalistic kitchen. Painting the underside of worktops in the same colour as feature walls also adds a stylish touch and softens the clean lines of kitchen units.

Design ideas inspired by nature

 

 

Simple paint techniques can make a big impact – especially in a children’s room. Try a new colour effect in your bedroom with a pebble-inspired design that fuses a warm clay tone with milky coffee and the subtle pink of Heart Wood, with a few lilac touches. You can see here how warm colours can still feel playful.
