Dulux Trade has annouced its ColourFutures colour palettes for 2019.
Dulux assembled a global panel of top design professionals to research trends, insights and consumer behaviours to decide on its colour of the year – a warm amber tone called Spiced Honey – and four complimentary palettes that capture the theme of ‘let the light in’.
Now in its 16th year, the Dulux Trade ColourFutures 2019 palette is selected to help professionals make colour and design choices for a wide variety of buildings, from commercial to healthcare and education to residential.
The global expert panel married art with science to decide on the annual colour. The colour, says Dulux , is versatile and contemporary, and complements a wide variety of interior styles with its optimistic range of palettes.
2018 was an unsettling and unpredictable time explained Heleen van Gent, Head of the Global Aesthetic Centre, who chairs the ColourFutures panel annually. “We were overwhelmed by the deluge of news, choices and demands upon our time, causing us to close up and retreat into spaces where we feel safe and cocooned. We pressed pause and took time to regroup. As we move forward into 2019, we find this pause has given people time to re-energise and deal with the sense of unpredictability with positive action, optimism and purpose. If the unpredictability of last year forced people to retreat and regroup, 2019 is the time for their awakening. We are ready to ‘Let in the Light’.”
