Dulux colour trends for Spring 2016

This Spring, the colours of the 60s and 70s are expected to take centre stage. According to Dulux, contrasting shades of blue and green, decadent browns and charcoals as well as light pink, hot red and crisp white will be the colours of the season: a departure from last year’s muted, neutral tones.

With playful names such as ‘Piglet’, ‘Hot Lips’ and ‘Hot Ginger’, the colour palette is energetic and eclectic, encouraging us to embrace an unexpected pairing of colours and a retro aesthetic.

Try introducing these shades through pops of colour, or be brave and introduce a more dramatic look with a darker background, highlighted with bright accessories.

Dulux’s Spring predictions are the result of research into global design, colour and finishes inspired by trade shows, fashion, technology, media and trend information. Take a look…
