2015’s colour forecast as predicted by Dulux

If you need colour inspiration for a new home or decoration project then keep in mind Dulux’s 2015 colour forecast. The four themes in the forecast are inspired by one uniting characteristic – connection. Whilst we are all well-practised in connecting through technology,  sometimes we also ache to reconnect with the earth, ourselves, our heritage or with our playful side by indulging in colour. Dulux’s four themes aim to help you do this.

According to Dulux, Earthwerks allows us to be at one with nature. With mossy greens, muddy browns and a touch of stormy blue, using this palate allows you to feel as though you have brought a touch of the outdoors indoors. You can even use hanging pot-plants or vertical gardens to complement this space.

Wildland introduces the bigger picture of nature. The icy blues, sandy yellows, and stoney greys open up spaces as they encourage us to imagine ragged mountain peaks, unmanageable forests and never-ending deserts. You can compliment these colours with natural materials such as leather, timber and stone.

Meantime, Modhaus uses circus reds, sunflower yellow and royal blue to bring a whole new dimension to the colour forecast. Where Earthwerks and Wildland are deep and and stormy, Modhaus is all about the geometric patterns and bright blocks of colour. It’s bringing back the playful 80s, so decorate with black and white to bring some order to the colour.

Finally, Silentshift offers a break from the other themes, as well as all distractions life can bring. With a palate full of pastel pinks, baby blues and beige, a space can be created with minimal contrast to allow for an escape from our fast-paced lives.
