Find yourself

With four distinct but equally sophisticated palettes, the Dulux Colour Forecast 2019 is all about creating your happy place.

In association with Dulux.


Helping to clear away mental clutter, Wholeself (also pictured on the previous pages) creates calm, distraction-free zones where you can dial down the visual volume and reconnect with yourself. Soft blushes and grey-green balance warm and cool, while enticing neutrals and glamorous golds are tempered by mauve greys.

Break out of the mould and reveal the real you with Identity, which empowers you to take a walk on the wild side and express your inner creative. Who cares what anyone else thinks? If, like us, you love these vibrant combinations of saturated blues, purples and oranges against a base of paler notes, we say you do you.

Hot new looks and futuristic technology might catch our eye, but there’s no denying the nostalgic charm of days gone by. Legacy brings past and present into timeless harmony with an eclectic mix of influences. This captivating palette of saturated hues ranges from pale pink, to orange, to soft lilac and mauve. Red, blue and green accents create an eye-catching contrast.

Colours to encourage a revived relationship with nature, Repair has a wabi-sabi sensibility that celebrates the beauty in faults and flaws. Soft, natural greens rub shoulders with authentic neutrals and earthy hues of cinnamon and sienna, and a pop of yellow adds an optimistic note to
the mix.
