Dulux, the international paint brand, has released its Colour of the Year for 2018. Each year, colour specialists at Dulux identify global social, design trends to understand how best to meet their consumer’s needs.
Colour really is an essential tool for homes and businesses. It helps to create environments that people can enjoy. We live in a tumultuous world; never knowing what it might bring us or what we may see or hear on the news on any given day. With that in mind, the research team at Dulux have identified that something we are all craving from 2018 is reassurance.
Heart Wood is the Dulux Colour of the Year 2018. A warm and dusky pink with a hint of heather, it perfectly translates comfort and warmth into our environments. Indeed, the key concept behind Heart Wood is balance.
The gentle character of the Heart Wood colour palette makes it ideal for use both in homes and business. It works very well with modern design elements and materials such as marble, copper and walnut to create a warm and restorative ambience.
To create a really inviting space, we would suggest pairing Heart Wood with natural looking flooring solutions like Karndean and LVT. The versatility of Heart Wood brings out the soft and rustic tones in the wood-inspired designs.
If you love classic and traditional, an excellent choice would be Hickory Paprika. This Karndean flooring option is full of character. For something a little more contemporary, you might prefer Niveus.
