Colour Forecast 2019

While we might have had a slightly wetter and more humid start to spring than expected, there’s no denying that a fresh season is upon us as the flowers come out in bloom.

If you’re considering giving your home a lick of fresh paint just in time for summer, then you’ve come to the right place, as Dulux has released its colour trends for 2019, and we’ve got the inside scoop on which colours will be making a splash in the New Year. 

Let's get started!

Legacy Pallete

What is the legacy we leave behind? Every day we tread the tightrope of time, pulled forward by hot, new trends and futuristic technologies. But there’s no ignoring our past, the ultimate symbol of elegance and time-honoured tradition. Legacy brings the past and present into timeless harmony with an eclectic mix of influences.

1. Saturated hues are tempered by paler shades such as Legendary Lilac and Pink Linen Half, creating a perfect backdrop to an intermingling of old-world charm and new-world chic.

2. Purple hues such as Hothouse Orchid and Purple Verbena can exude a certain luxury when paired with pieces that balance elegance and austerity with elements of the precious and plush.

3. You may fall in love with a fabric, an artwork or the embroidery on your favourite cushion; try sourcing your wall colour from these most-loved elements. Here we feature Deep Aqua, inspired by this botanical patterned bed linen.

4. A bolder palette than the other 2019 colour trends, Legacy features a range of bright, intense and daring hues with regal purples, attention-grabbing aquas and brown-based pinks.

Repair Palette

Repair helps us revive our relationship with nature and embrace a more holistic and ‘circular’ way of living. Our comfortable, carefree existence begins to fade into the past, as we adopt a wabi-sabi sensibility that appreciates the beauty in faults and flaws.

1. Staying within a colour family is an easy way to create a harmonious colour scheme. Combine mustard with yellow-based green and warm timber finishes for a cohesive look and feel.

2. Uplifting colours smooth out the rough edges with their authentic optimism. Highlight cabinetry with colour you love and pare back strong schemes with natural finishes such as timber and concrete.

3. Hues such as Cinnamon Sand can create a warm but natural colour palette that is perfect in a cosy space. Natural linens, rough painted brick and weathered architectural details create a homely and relaxed atmosphere.

4. Repair is about using what you have and making it special through the process of mixing and matching with newer, modern pieces. Look for well-loved vintage items that may need some extra care spent to bring them back to life. Use a backdrop of neutral hues such as Ohai Half, allowing furniture details to shine.
It’s time to break out of the mould and show us the real you. Identity speaks to the radical, non-conformist in us all. It empowers us to live on the wild side and express our true inner creative. Who cares what anyone else thinks?

1. Anything goes with Identity, so choose what you love, go with what makes you smile and create a bold, optimistic statement in your home. Your bedroom is a perfect place to start experimenting with colour and defining your style.

2. Bold hues can be used to call out simple, unassuming architectural details transforming them into features within your home. This gives you the option to feature strong statement colours such as Red Clown and Mondrian Blue in small but impactful doses.

3. Simple geometric features can create amazing backdrops for graphic art. We have selected Mondrian Blue and Mitchell Blue hues to complement this artwork rather than distract from it.

4. A mish-mash of modern multi-cultural influences call up the colourful, futuristic vibes of sci-fi fantasy and off-the-wall selfie culture. They empower us to be brave and confident and to flaunt the fabulous, colourful quirks and flaws that make us who we are.

Wholeself

Do you feel like your brain is in constant overdrive? It’s time to switch off the smartphone and clear out the mental clutter. Wholeself helps us to create a calm, distraction-free zone where we can dial back the volume and reconnect with ourselves.

1. Evoke a feeling of relaxation and wellness in your guest room or retreat by using a soft green such as Dulux New Life. For a truly chilled space, choose tonal hues for your other elements.

2. Tonality is key in the Wholeself trend, punctuate your space using accessories to create moments of interest with accent colours that complement your colour scheme but don’t overpower it.

3. Transform your bathroom into a private sanctuary by using a moody Dulux Modest Mauve. This subtle, greyed-off mauve is a perfect complement to cool colours of natural stone and granite.

4.
Our search for spirituality and wellness manifests through soothing spaces styled around simple forms and tactile surfaces. Creamy colours such as Ecru create warmth in minimalist interiors.
