Winter Colour Palette | Interior Design

The winter colour palette is ‘stripped of excess’ offering a ‘less is more’ narrative which seems to be becoming much more important for people who now seem to be prioritising value and functionality in their homes.

Bright Skies

The Dulux Colour of the Year 2022 is ‘Bright Skies’, a stunning hue of uplifting light blue that provides a much-needed revitalising breath of fresh air into our homes.

The soft blue colour is wonderfully reminiscent of a clear sky filled with hope, reminding us to ‘look up’ as we move onto more positive times. Use ‘Bright Skies’ in the areas of your home where you’d like additional natural light or spaces you want to appear and feel more open and airier. Blue also helps with concentration, making it a great choice for a home office.

“People want to feel revitalised and enjoy the freedoms that are returning to them, to look out and bring in new ideas. What better inspiration can we take than the endless skies around us?” says Marianne Shillingford, creative director of Dulux UK.

Restorative Neutrals

More milky and almond toned neutrals, rather than the cooler tones seen on the grey scale, have seen a return in recent years. With the cold weather creeping in, we’re all about warm neutrals, ideal for creating relaxing living areas that provide a sense of home comfort. These neutral tones are perfect for bringing out other colours and work well as a foundation for introducing a colour accent on areas such as the skirting boards or even a door giving them a real sense of warmth.

Brave Ground

Hailed as Dulux’s Colour of the Year 2021, ‘Brave Ground’ was precisely chosen to neutralise our homes in 2021 and beyond. This lovely warm neutral tone has a calming and grounding effect and it’s the modest allure that we’re drawn to.

The simple hue aspires to provide a safe haven where we can retreat from the outside world. It also goes well with a wide range of colour schemes, effortlessly adapting to its environment.

The warm and grounding neutral tone has been defined by Dulux as ‘the colour that will enable people to draw upon the strength of nature to help them find the courage to embrace the future.’

Serene Green

Is green the new grey? Taking over the interior world by storm, this colour is absolutely everywhere. Radiating calming qualities and nature vibes, it’s no surprise this colour has become so popular in those yearning for a relaxed and contented home feel. Incorporating the nature-inspired hue into your colour schemes help create a refreshing style. Painting walls with luscious green is a step closer to feeling at one with nature. This colour is fresh, energetic, and always in style,
regardless of the shade you decide to choose. It goes nicely with a wide range of colours, from neutrals like brown and grey to colourful shades of yellow, blue, pink, and other hues.
