Colour Trends of 2013
Each year Dulux’s colour experts study global trends to come up with the colours that will make the biggest splash. In 2013 they’ve come up with six colour palettes based on the themes of movement – Dulux has taken a look at how colour is shifting and changing in modern times.
The 6 colour palettes:
In times of global turbulence, we often look to the past for certainty. The Merge theme evokes nostalgia by combining past, present and future styles to create something fresh but familiar. This colour palette features hues of stone, timber, leather and red.
The Seek palette embraces our passion for finding one-off pieces, transforming pieces from the past and creating a new space from the old. It has a vintage feel, although the colours are given new life through their use.
With the rise of new technologies, we are empowered as a global community to speak as one and create change. The Empower palette is a range of blues inspiring optimism, openness and communication.
The Rise palette is inspired by a fusion of east and west. The Japanese design aesthetic is quiet, calm and considered, a style that is fitting with today’s modern demands. It presents a range of sophisticated pastels, to help create a soft, light environment.
While some people try to block out the growing impact of digital technologies, there is also a generation who can’t get enough. The Share theme is inspired by the world of social media and its impact on design. A monochromatic palette with metallic highlights sets the mood.
The Blur palette s bold and daring, exploring our need to be excited and enticed with our everyday interactions. With combinations of red, pinks, purples and oranges it will certainly grab your attention.
