Soft gold tones, nature inspired and totally refreshing - Dulux’s Colour of the Year has it all.

We know what a big decision it is when committing to a new colour for your home space - devouring the sample cards and tester pots. If you need a helping hand along the way, the colour experts at Dulux have recently announced their Colour of the Year for 2023.

Wild Wonder™, the name given to Dulux’s Colour of the Year, is described as ‘a positive, glowing tone, inspired by the natural world’.

And, you’re in good hands as Dulux’s trend experts travel the world translating their insights into an annual Colour of the Year that matches the mood of the moment.

Bringing in nature

Nature is a key element of this new colour - one that Dulux refers to as ‘encapsulating the transformative power of nature.’

To complement Wild Wonder’s™ natural tones, look to incorporate textures including linen, wood and rattan to your home’s decor. Start small, with changeable accessories such as rugs, cushions and wall decorations.

Alternatively, classic window treatments including wood blinds and shutters can offer a contemporary feel - from dark wood shades to painted styles there’s lots of colour options to suit your space.

Designs and fabrics that hint to the linen look are timeless, luxurious and are an easy way to add interest in a room. Consider our Twist roller blinds collection to bring this look to your home, this style of blind features two layers of fabric that glide over each other so you can easily maintain light control and privacy.

To amplify the natural look, consider roller blinds with botanical and leafy prints. Our new LightLine® Roller Blinds collection features large stand-out designs; the semi-translucent fabric with its fern design creates softly diffused light, day and night.

Making a statement

So, you’ve picked a colour and you’re ready to get going with the paintbrush and roller?

Consider the same colour for your room’s woodwork as well as the walls - one feature we love is to continue the colour to skirting boards.

Or, why not consider complementary white-based painted walls and bring in colour to ceilings and your window recesses - a modern touch that adds personality. If you have a small space, consider all walls in the same colour - a bold move that is sure to get your guests talking!

Complementary colour palettes

There’s even more to discover from Dulux. Alongside Wild Wonder™ comes four complementary colour palettes; Lush, Buzz, Raw and Flow - each highlighting the different way that nature inspires us.

There’s lots of colour inspiration to indulge in and ways to work new colour into your home in 2023.
