Dulux Unveils the Interior Colour Trends for 2022


As we approach the end of another year, we begin to contemplate what the year ahead may hold. After spending the majority of our time between four walls, cocooned in a digital haze, we emerge with a fresh perspective and a deeper understanding of what is truly important. Dulux has captured this sentiment in their colour forecast for 2022.

Next year’s colour trends reveal a restorative palette of muted, soft hues to sooth and balance the mind. Sensual, moody tones promote liberation whilst serene and feminine pastels invigorate and inspire us towards a year of new possibilities.

Natural Flora

Natural Flora, a muted forest green, evokes a feeling of well-being and harmony. This earthy tone, sooths the mind and bring our focus back to the natural world after having spent so much time lingering in the digital realm. This colour works well with warm whites such as Dulux Rice Crop and can be contrasted with an earthy brown such as Dulux New Penny to create a restorative palette.
