Create a light, fun summer mood in your home with Dulux’s playful Wonder palette
As we say goodbye to the last of the chilly weather, it's time to invite the beautiful balmy days back by getting creative with Dulux's summer-inspired Wonder palette — one of three palettes from the Dulux Colour Forecast 2022.

Dulux Colour Specialist Davina Harper says colour is such a magical tool to transform spaces in the home, and a seasonal refresh with curated colours offers home enthusiasts the perfect inspiration.

“With a focus on celebration, regeneration and fun, the mood for summer should be light and effervescent with a layering of livelier colours to boost your mood,” says Harper. The Dulux Wonder palette features light pastels and playful, summery hues like deep turquoise green, lilac and rose gold. Together, these shades evoke a cheerful and optimistic feel, and can help create a positive change in your surroundings.

To reinvigorate the dining area, the combination of Dulux Mātauri Bay on the walls complemented by Dulux Tītahi Bay trims showcases how experimenting with colour and veering from ‘traditional’ placements can create something strikingly unique. Who says trims have to be white?! Tītahi Bay and Mātauri Bay are a refreshing summer colour combination and work well together in many settings.

If you want to add even a small amount of colour to give your room a more ‘summery’ feel, try adding one colour in a wall nook or on the wall behind your bed. Another way to add a quick and easy pop of colour is painting your front door — you’d be surprised at what a difference it can make to the look and feel of your home.

“No matter how you decide to incorporate colour – be it a ceiling-to-floor wall refresh or a small pop of colour in your home décor or furnishings – the most important thing to remember is to be creative and experiment with hues, textures and patterns until you find a scheme you love,” Harper adds. “The Wonder palette is a playful palette so be sure to have fun with it.”
