2020 Colour trends
Well, the Dulux colour trends for 2020 have been released and wow, there are some great colours. The whole vibe feels retro-contemporary cool, turn your back on mass-produced and travel! Which suits me well, as that's what I'm all about. So below is my summary of what's on offer for 2020 and how I can help you achieve the look:
"Vintage styles mix with contemporary pieces to create an eclectic look" - Dulux
Retro contemporary cool! With a vintage and rich colour palette of blues, greens, azure (the lush bright blue colour) and amber alongside warm tones of grape, rust, and clay. It's all about blending your favourite pieces, whether collected from travel or favourite finds and expressing your true self and style. Less is more and pops of vintage colour. Teams perfectly with the Hobart, Siena and Sydney cushion.
"Cultivate’s nature-inspired palette combats the crush of city living with its soothing calmness." - Dulux
Homely, nurture and regeneration. Relax from the city life and be calm! Or just move to the country as I did! This palette is all about the layers of greens and moving to earthy palettes with hints of blue-grey, purple and mustard to help you reconnect to nature. Perfect pairing with Vatican and Borgia cushion.
"Build yourself a simple, beautiful life." - Dulux
Simple, soft and beautiful. Removing the clutter and making mindful choices of craftsmanship and longevity (sounds like purchasing from limited edition fair trade artisans to me!). This palette is muted, calm and soft with neutral whites and greys, with hints of lavender and corals to add a feeling of luxe. This palette is perfect with the Modena cushion.
"Indulge is the luxurious antidote to our busy, stressful lives" - Dulux
Rich, yummy, fun and not for the faint-hearted. Did someone say dramatic? Think escape, travel, time-warp and again, more retro-cool, but warm this time! ... Can we be all these things?!?
This palette is all about rich layers of red, earthy browns, terracotta, rust purples, and coral. This palette is perfect with Pompeii and Kandalama cushion.
