Colour your world with the Dulux Colour Forecast for 2022

The Dulux Colour Forecast for 2022 is here to inspire your home décor overhaul. Recognising how the pandemic has changed our understanding of what makes a house a home, the latest Forecast has comfort at its centre.

“Living through a pandemic has made us feel even more connected to our homes,” says Davina Harper, Dulux Colour Specialist. “When it comes to future trends, comfort is key. We want our living spaces to calm and nurture us, so we can process everything we’ve experienced over the last year, and at the same time, help us rediscover our zest for life, looking forward.”

This understanding, combined with extensive research into global trends, has determined the three colour palettes that make up the 2022 Forecast – Flourish, Wonder and Restore.

FLOURISH

The circumstances of the past 18 months have imbued us with a desire to make the most of every moment. The Flourish palette captures this spirit while also exuding elegance and decadence with rich hues like petrol blue, desert red and dusty rose interspersed with pops of vintage gold. Interiors are layered with colour and texture, combining sumptuous tones through fabrics such as velvet, silk and soft leather.

WONDER

The Wonder palette is all about optimism, bringing joy to your spaces with pastels and summer shades like cornflower blue, lilac, lemon, green quartz and rose gold. Bright florals, checks and candy stripes meet needlepoint cushions, ribbed glass and woven rattan furniture. Sustainably sourced or recycled furniture is a feature of this look, underpinning a desire to protect the wonders of the planet we share.

RESTORE

Restore takes inspiration from the environment with earthy neutrals and rugged natural tones. Hues like buttercream, pumice, airy blue, clay, moss and purple- black provide a soft and soothing backdrop. DĂ©cor is minimalist and familiar, creating a space that is comfortable and calm. Furniture is chunky and features curves reminiscent of the lines of the body. Accessories are simple yet provide interest through imperfect shapes.
