he colour team at Dulux has been exploring 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 has really enjoyed a resurgence over the past few years, and the way we use colour has evolved. The eclectic combinations of colour used in residential and commercial spaces reveal our growing confidence with colour as a tool for design expression. And, considering the impact colour can have on our wellbeing and emotions, it’s clear to see why it is such an integral part of any design concept. It’s exciting to see more and more colour professionals and home enthusiasts embracing colour in their spaces. We hope you enjoy the exciting colour journey that the Dulux Colour Trends 2018 presents. This year’s theme is ‘Balance’. A sense of balance is desired in many areas of life, whether it be work-life balance or a sense of well being. With future interiors in mind, the idea of balance is crucial to ensure we live and work in harmonious spaces that help to stimulate our senses, as well as enable us to relax and retreat. Your home should provide a nurturing, sensory experience; a place that provides security, relaxation and peace. Colour is a wonderful way to express your personal tastes and desires. We invite you to immerse yourself in this uplifting world of colour, and discover how to transform the essence and mood of your home spaces so they feel both positive and productive.

As Dulux’s New Zealand Colour Specialist, Davina is fascinated by the constant evolution of colour in response to shifting social influences. In collaboration with Andrea and Bree, Davina applies her interior and colour design expertise to help shape the Dulux Colour Trends 2018. She is passionate about New Zealand design and excited to see local designers represented in this year’s colour trends. “My favourite trend this year is Escapade because of the playful colour combinations,” she says. Her top colour choices: Dulux Sassy and Beige Artefacts.

Lisa Cohen is an Australian-based photographer specialising in interiors, food, lifestyle and still life. Growing up in a family containing three generations of architects, it was only natural that Lisa developed a love for interiors and design. This led her to London, where she worked as a concept stylist on interiors magazines, before moving into photography. Since then Lisa has been shooting interiors, food and lifestyle images for large national brands, small independent clients and magazines worldwide.

Interior stylist and writer Michelle Halford, founded her blog, The Design Chaser, in 2012. With a focus on Scandinavian interiors, she reports on current trends, shares inspiring projects and collaborates with local and international brands. Her global following has seen her social accounts become among the most popular in the design world. She was named “pinner to follow” by the Huffington Post. For this year’s colour trends we asked Michelle to re-create the Kinship look for an everyday living space.

As Dulux Australia’s Colour & Communications Manager, Andrea Lucena-Orr researches colour trends, presenting her findings to trade and retail markets, and media. Travelling to Milan Design Week, Andrea with Davina and Bree solidified their concepts and insights for the Dulux Colour Trends 2018. “I adore working with colour and experimenting with unusual colour combinations and textures,” Andrea says. “Colour has an amazing power to transform spaces and I love the emotional connections you can create through the personalising of colour schemes.” Andrea highlights Reflect as her top Dulux Colour Trend. “The rich and moody colour combinations used in this trend offer up some exciting opportunities for new colour expression in our home spaces,” she says.

As Design Manager for Country Road Home, he covers everything from setting initial design directions to identifying new products and category opportunities. He oversees product design processes, visual merchandising, styling and marketing. For this year’s colour trends, Bruce gets creative with the Essential trend.

For Pip, selling beautiful things is in her blood. From a young age, she filled her weekends with selling picked flowers, pastel drawings, pikelets and cordial to passer-buyers. While she studied fashion and textile design in Sydney, the pull back to Orange, NSW, proved too strong. At age 22 Pip opened Iglou store, later followed by Jumbled. Jumbled sells an eclectic mix of homewares. “It is pretty much everything I love and want for myself, all located under the one roof,” she says. For this year’s colour trends, Pip re-imagines the Escapade trend.

Heather Nette King's love of colour has had a strong influence on her work as an interiors stylist and writer. She works with bold, unique colour combinations and loves inspiring others to do the same. Heather’s work is seen in leading interior titles and newspapers and she creates visual imagery for many of Australia’s most popular interiors brands. Her work has also been published internationally, and her own home has been featured in international style bible, Elle Decoration UK. For this year’s colour trends, Heather shows us how she would create the Reflect look in her home.

CREATING THE LOOK MICHELLE HALFORD CREATES A WARM, COSY SPACE WITH THE KINSHIP TREND

17

“I was immediately drawn to Kinship’s palette of deep red, brown and caramel tones. Together with cosy, neutral shades they create a warm, cocoon-like atmosphere perfect for a living room. For the walls I used Dulux Reddy Brown alongside Hildegard. My hero pieces, a Fritz Hansen Lune Sofa, pendant light, layered rugs and wall art, are inspired by Dulux Very Terracotta, Raccoon Tail and Red Ochre. I chose Dulux Beige Artefacts as a neutral accent to carry through to other furniture selections. Embracing expressive folkloric elements I have chosen beautiful wood, woven and ceramic pieces to add texture and interest to the room.”

11 MICHELLE’S TIPS

— The rich, earthy hues of the Kinship palette go hand in hand with texture. For furniture and soft furnishings, choose tactile finishes like velvet and wool. — Offset rich colours with a complimentary neutral to create warmth and cosiness. — Bring a fun, folkloric style to your space with patterns, embroidery, fringing and tassels.

t’s the simple pleasures that remind us that life need not be so complicated. The familiar comfort of a cup of tea, the warm kiss of the sun on your face. Beauty can exist in the most humble and quietest of moments. Showy status symbols begin to lose their shine, replaced by the Nordic tradition of Hygge (HOO-ga). Time is no longer an elusive and fleeting luxury, rather a series of moments to be savoured and shared.

Our search for a more authentic existence inspires a new-found appreciation for natural and recycled materials. As we embrace the old as new, we repair our rifts with nature and move towards a more genuine and conscious way of living.

For a contemporary scheme team with Dieskau this natural tone brings together the striking contrast between white and deeper blue.

BRUCE SUMMERS GETS INSPIRED WITH THE ESSENTIAL TREND

“For my Essential space, I’ve focused on natural materials, finishes and textures that carry a modern, understated and casual sophistication. I have focused on soft green tones and warm neutrals that create a statement without being loud ideal for creating a sense of calm. The colour palette works perfectly with raw timber, leather and brass allowing the materiality to be the hero. I have balanced clean lines with the exaggerated and simple woven textiles including a rug and upholstery fabric. Incorporating elements of nature can really finish a space. I selected a juvenile Eucalyptus tree which works against Dulux Flooded Gum or Spanish Olive.”

BRUCE’S TIPS

— Link your interior spaces with the outdoors by choosing soft green tones and warm neutrals inspired by nature. — Add accents of charcoal or black to your calm colour palette to create moments of visual interest and help anchor the look. — Create a sense of intrigue with artisanal accents like hand-glazed ceramics, beautiful hand loom cushions or folded leather baskets.

14 PIP BRETT OF JUMBLED GETS CREATIVE WITH THE ESCAPADE LOOK. 12

“Colour really makes my heart sing! For this fresh, fun space, I’ve used brave, bold block colours to create my dream room. I love an element of surprise, so I’ve clashed patterns and geometric shapes, and played with scale to create a playful, exciting look and feel. Inspired by holidays in Palm Springs and Miami - I’ve brought the outdoors in with indoor plants, used colourful artwork and a green feature wall to channel that vibrant, happy feel.”

PIP’S TIPS

— Yellow is like magic! Use it as an accent colour to make your other colours pop. — Looking for inspiration for a new colour scheme? Start by pulling key colours from your favourite artwork to build a colour palette for your room. — Use directional lines to take your eye on a journey through the room. Try fine-lined furniture or fittings in black, or experiment by painting a linear pattern on the wall.

he age of intelligence may be upon us, but our romance with the past lives on. As smart technology re-shapes the look and feel of our everyday life, we take the opportunity to reflect and re-connect with the design icons of our past. We revisit history’s best moments with fresh eyes, borrowing from the legacies of our luminaries to refashion our future. The rapid progress of new technology is tempered by the simple genius of classic architecture and design. The balance plays out in an opulent fusion of eclectic classic style. Hints of 70s glamour are enlivened by sassy bursts of 90s style, exuding an aura of elegant timelessness.

HEATHER USES THE REFLECT TREND TO CREATE A STRONG, FEMININE SITTING ROOM. 6

“This is my dream ‘room of one’s own’ a modern take on an elegant space for reading magazines, entertaining girlfriends and catching up on correspondence. The slate floor suggests it’s in the formal part of the home, and the strong walls and ceiling colours provide an intimacy good for encouraging the sharing of secrets! The bronze feature wall ups the glam factor, and the mix of furniture and accessories from the 50s to now keeps the feeling fresh and contemporary. Lighting would be hung low, and kept dim at all times."

HEATHER’S TIPS

— Create a sense of intimacy with low hung lighting and deep, moody colours.

— Be bold with your colour scheme by adding a dark ceiling colour to complete the look. — Add a touch of glam using a precious metallic paint, like Dulux Gold Effect, on your feature wall. Up the opulence with glints of metallic throughout your space. — For a fresh look, combine classic furniture styles with contemporary additions.
