Each year, various organisations pick out their predicted Colour of the Year. Dulux has just announced theirs as the gorgeous Denim Drift – a lovely blue-grey colour.
It’s a shade that will work in a variety of decor schemes, from kitchens and living rooms, to kids rooms and studies.
In addition, Dulux have developed a beautiful tonal colour palette specifically to complement the Colour of the Year, featuring a spectrum of blues and complimentary blue-hued tones:
The colours complement each other so well and there are shades of blue included that are soft and soothing, as well as more dramatic and moody – something for everyone.
We particularly love how they’ve been used in this kid’s bedroom – what a cosy nook that looks!
Here’s what Marianne Shillingford, Creative Director at Dulux, has to say about using the colour ideas in your decor projects. “Creating a blue colour scheme is successful when you choose shades that work beautifully together.
This year the Colour of the Year, Denim Drift, has been teamed with a palette of blues which give you the confidence to get it right every time. There are ten blues within the palette, five of them, including Denim Drift, are muted and atmospheric and the remaining five are cleaner, brighter hues that pack more of a punch.
The whole collection has been designed to be used in combination across different elements of an interior from the walls to the furniture, furnishings and accessories. You can turn the visual impact up with the brighter blues and down with the muted blues to suit the style and personality of a room and can be sure that none of them will ever look out of place.”
So, do you think you’ll be incorporating Denim Drift or any of the other blue hues into your decorating projects in the coming year?168
