Add a splash of the Dulux Colour of the Year into your home

Add a splash of the Dulux Colour of the Year into your home

Each year, paint brand Dulux works with a panel of international design experts to explore the mood of the moment and find out what colour trends will shape the way we live. From this, the company chooses the best colour to reflect their  findings - or what it calls ‘a shade that will feel just right in our homes for years to come’.

The colour it has chosen to define 2022 is the heavenly and tranquil ‘Bright Skies’.

Described as an airy and fresh tone that opens up and breathes new life into any space, Bright Skies is the perfect choice for making your home feel fresh, cosy and modern. The colour of the year also comes with a complimentary palette of muted beachy tones with shades of browns and blues.

Here are just some of the ways in which you can bring these transformative shades into different rooms of your home.

A breath of fresh air in your bedroom

Whether you are rising up from a good night’s sleep or sinking in for an afternoon nap, the colours within your bedroom will really set the mood. Wicker and rattan lampshades are all the rage right now and really set up hues of blues and greens nicely. Oliver Bonas has a timeless selection that lends a light touch to your surroundings.

To really add an element of class, these luxurious John Lewis 200 thread count bed sheets feel luxurious on the skin and come in stunning shades such as duck egg, latte and putty.

Soak it up in the bathroom

Let the troubles drift away in the hot tub with your favourite bubble bath and scented candles, all of which complement the Bright Skies shade. Once you’re done, why not wrap yourself up in these super soft towels from Marks and Spencer. Available in shades of chambray, mocha and stone, you’ll feel lighter than air

The perfect backdrop to Zoom calls

After a relaxing morning and a stress-relieving bath it is probably time to do some work. Your colleagues will be impressed on those Zoom calls with your Dulux Bright Skies walls and carefully chosen artwork.

The good news is that this colour is the perfect base for most artwork. And, when looking for pictures for your home office, buying from local artists will give your interiors an individual look and support the creative community. We suggest paintings and photos be placed in these stunning Nkuku frames to really make your walls pop.

Bringing the Al Fresco feels to your kitchen

You can have some real fun with the Bright Skies colour in your kitchen. Kitchen appliances come in an array of colours these days and, depending on your budget, you can have fun experimenting with what works for your space. We are loving this soft blue pedal bin and these earth mocha bowls.  And, If you really want to splash out, do a Nigella and treat yourself to this opulent Kitchen Aid mixer.

Put your feet up in the living room

As well as a fresh lick of paint, you can really make the living room feel spacious as well as cosy by adding some simple touches to your decor. Sink your toes into this gorgeous acacia blue rug while resting your head on these beautiful comfortable cushions available in sorrel and soft teal.
