This season, sophisticated earthy shades partnered with light neutrals will dominate, alongside tribal-inspired textured furnishings – perfect for creating the nurturing space we crave for when the temperatures start their downward descent.
A collection of rich hues inspired by traditional cultures and folklore, the Dulux Kinship Palette is one of four key themes identified in the Dulux 2018 Colour Trends.
Featuring warm terracotta, russet, soft grey-greens, cosy neutrals and pops of vibrant red that hint at an Eastern influence, the range pairs beautifully with the natural materials that are so popular right now – warm timbers, stone and linens.
Whether you choose to go all-out with these deeper shades or dip your toe in the water with a few touches, the key is to pair them with a complementary white or neutral boasting similar undertones, creating balance and allowing the bold hues to enhance rather than overwhelm a space.
A warm white, Dulux’s Cardrona sits beautifully alongside the pinkish and heathery hues of Maiko and Glen Murray, while its cooler sibling Hakataramea ensures deeper shades such as Very Terracotta, pop. So why not colour yourself cosy this autumn.
