To help us select our Color of the Year, we ask a panel of international design experts to help us understand the mood of the moment and to share their insights about what’s influencing the way we live. This year, our discussion went digital before our team of color experts set to work choosing a shade that reflected those findings – a shade that will feel just right for our homes over the next few years.
Over the past 18 months, our lives have been turned upside down, but we’ve also had time to rethink the way we live and to reassess what’s really important. At our Trend Forecast, we talked about how the role of the home has been transformed; about how essential nature is in our lives; how creativity and the arts have brought us comfort and inspiration during lockdown; and how important it is to embrace new ideas and opinions as we try to shape the world for the better.
These discussions led us to a theme for Dulux Color of the Year 2022 – a breath of fresh air – and to the shade itself, which encapsulates what we will need from our spaces in 2022. Bright Skies™ (Blueberry Mash 14 BB 55/113) is a light and airy blue; it’s a color that feels vibrant, optimistic and good for the soul. And it’s a shade that can open up and revitalize our homes. Around it, we’ve created four easy-to-use color palettes, so you can refresh your living space in any way you choose.
When a living area needs to switch in an instant from home to office to classroom, we need a flexible do-it-all space. Used with Bright Skies™ (Blueberry Mash 14 BB 55/113), the multicolored Workshop palette with its combination of light, uplifting tones, can help you create an inspirational backdrop for any activity.

With the light, natural tones of the Greenhouse palette, combined with Color of the Year 2022, Bright Skies™ (Blueberry Mash 14 BB 55/113), it’s easy to bring the freshness of the outdoors inside. In a rural location, these colors can complement the surroundings; in an urban space, they can help us feel in touch with nature.

We all need somewhere to recharge and feel inspired; somewhere we can escape the everyday. Painting your walls with Studio colors can give a room a comfortable, consoling feel and, if you go for stripes, you’ll create a dramatic focal point too.
