The colour team at Dulux has been forecasting colour trends for over 18 years. It’s been such a journey and incredible to look back over the early beginnings of our work, from the year 2000 through to today. Colour is enjoying a resurgence in design, and the eclectic combinations of colour we’re seeing in residential and commercial spaces reveals our growing confidence with colour as a tool for design expression. We hope you enjoy the exciting journey that the Dulux Colour Forecast 2018 presents. Balance is desired in many areas of life, whether it be work-life balance or a sense of inner balance. With the future of interiors in mind, the idea of balance is crucial to ensure we can live and work in harmonious spaces that help to stimulate our senses, as well as enable us to relax and retreat. We invite you to immerse yourself in this uplifting world of colour and discover how to transform the essence and mood of a space, so that it feels at once positive and productive.

Kinship TREND I

A gentle revolution is underway


Kinship

Sometimes it feels like the bad news just keeps coming. Reports of social and political turmoil fill our news feeds. Between the fake news and click-bate headlines it can be hard to sort the truth from the alternative facts! It’s time to tap out. A beacon of hearth-warming hope, Kinship offers us a source of spiritual wellbeing in hard times. As this gentle revolution gains momentum, we’re empowered to switch off the noise and drown out the negative vibes. To create space for compassion and kindness, truth and transparency. We find new joy in reviving long-held traditions. A colourful mish-mash of cultural influences ignites our sense of community. Renewing our faith in one another and the world around us.

Tribal Cues This stunning installation by Jaime Hayon for Caesarstone draws on a diverse mix of folkloric references from Hungarian myths to African tribal influences. Perhaps most distinctive of all is Hayon’s signature tribal mask and furniture featuring animated characters. A fresh and visionary take on Caesarstone surfaces. Caesarstone’s Stone Age Folk by Jaime Hayon, photograph by Tom Mannion.


Eastern Influence References to traditional Eastern design appeared everywhere at the fair. Iconic Chinese ceramics, lantern-like lighting forms, and fabric patterns with traditional Asian motifs sat alongside contemporary references and retro forms like Dimore Studio’s installation.

Welcome Warmth

Antique Tradition

In ‘Warm Welcome Journey to Italy’ blankets become a symbol of protection and haven. These one-off pieces, woven from antique repurposed blankets, address themes of diversity, warmth, comfort and welcome. An important social comment in a time of mass migration.

Above: MASK, Kvadrat x GamFratesi installation.

MASK is a whimsical, expressive installation by design duo GamFratesi. Playing with the iconic shape and expression of the ancient mask, it meditates on textile as the ‘mask’ of a piece of furniture. “It changes its personality, or makes it act in an unexpected way,” they say. References to ceremony, ritual and ornamentation are rich.

KINSHIP X TIM WEBBER

Tim draws on a myriad of cultural and design influences to create an intimate, cosy lounge space.

11

10

“The lounge is the perfect environment for creating a natural connection between people. I’ve used the Kinship trend to inspire a design that cultivates a sense of harmony, understanding and togetherness. Bold forms and solid proportions paired with rich and humble colours keep the space grounded. Setting the tone for this aesthetic is Dulux Herbalist, which I’ve used on the large feature wall. A touch of Very Terracotta emphasises the feeling of warmth, while the addition of deep grey with Ruski neutralises the scheme. Drawing all the colours together and centring the space is Beige Artefacts. To finish, I’ve used a curated collection of furnishings, lighting and objects to highlight qualities of workmanship and craft.”

Essential

Feeling worn down by the fast fashion of a hyper-connected, technology driven life? Essential is the slow living remedy to life’s chaotic pace. As we embrace a more authentic existence, our sense of global consciousness kicks into gear. Showy status symbols lose their shine. Wealth and happiness are redefined by life’s simple beauty. The Nordic tradition of Hygge reminds us to savour the time we have. To be present in the moment. To let nature’s elements nourish our spirit and time spent with family and friends feed the soul. Our search for genuine simplicity inspires a newfound appreciation for natural and recycled materials. As we embrace the old as new, we repair our rifts with nature and move towards a more conscious way of living.

Designer Edit ESSENTIAL X AMBER ROAD

Yasmine Ghoniem of Amber Road applies an essential ethos to this concept space. “We wanted our design to deliver ‘everything you need, and nothing you don’t’. It needed to be rich in cultural and sensual resonance, while also honest and moving. The resulting concept is based around Essential qualities of Wabisabi and the beauty in the imperfect; the idea of ‘graceful aging’ – highlighted by vintage, patinaed pieces and handcrafted contemporary designs; as well as authenticity – emphasised by a series of honest earthy material gestures. For this space we’ve chosen a neutral base palette composed of subtle tonal changes (Dulux Terrace White, Crystal Palace and Dieskau). Earthy tones of Clay Court, Mornington Half and Gnu Tan help to ground the base palette. An accent of Noble Knight blue is used sparingly and colour blocked to create an arresting contrast between the perfect and imperfect.”

Designer Edit ESCAPADE X FLACK STUDIO

Flack Studio uses Escapade to inspire the design of a concept gallery/ retail space. “We wanted to create a welcoming environment for people to experience art and photography. Using Escapade as our inspiration we’ve combined bold forms and shapes with colour and texture to create a series of environments that immerse the viewer into the world of photography. By manipulating these architectural elements we’ve also created an interior that challenges traditional notions of ‘the gallery’, offering a new perspective on how to view and display photography. Using experimental colour combinations, we’ve designed multiple memorable moments. Recesses, archways and thresholds use colour to create highlights and emphasis. Contrasting natural stones and textured plaster work hand-in-hand with the colour palette to deliver an unusual and unexpectedly harmonious interior.”

Reflect

The age of intelligence is upon us, but our romance with the past lives on. As smart technology dives deep into our daily rituals, we temper our desire for rapid progress with an appreciation for the simple genius of classic architecture and design. Reflect revisits history’s best moments with fresh eyes, borrowing from the legacies of our luminaries to refashion our future spaces.

80

The balance plays out in an opulent fusion of eclectic classic style. Hints of 70s glamour clash with sassy bursts of 90s style. Twentieth-century relics are recast as sophisticates of the new century. Design statements are bold, yet that sense of timeless understated luxury remains intact.

Inspiration

New Traditions The Milan Home by Carl Hansen & Son was a thoughtfully curated mock apartment, installed at the Fiera. Beautiful, enriching materials were applied in a fresh contemporary way, creating a mood that felt social and modern, yet steeped in tradition.

Past Revisited Studiopepe created an intimate apartment setting that cleverly combined traditional and modern details. Stylistic clues revealed stories and conjured a distinctly Milanese air of creativity and sophistication. Drapes were used to divide the floor space, while also adding a lush material aspect to the architecture. Left: The Visit by Studiopepe.

Test of Time UK designer Lee Broom celebrated a decade of design by reimagining all his furniture, lighting and accessories in white. This made for an impactful display. The key piece and the only new edition in this year’s showcase was a stunning Carrara marble grandfather clock. A fresh, luxurious take on a timehonoured furniture piece. Below: Time Machine, marble grandfather clock by Lee Broom.

REFLECT X BEC DOWIE

Bec Dowie of Douglas & Bec creates her dream apartment using Reflect as her inspiration source. “Our concept for this open plan apartment centres around a playful yet luxurious blend of art and design. The interior palette offsets bold colour against the textural and tonal contrasts of materials including marble, velvet, brass and antiqued walnut. We love the interplay of shiny against dull! Furniture pieces are an eclectic mix of modern and antique. While a series of lamps are used to heighten the mood of the space. The overall effect is reminiscent of an Italian hotel apartment. It would be an absolute dream to live in this space!”
