Dulux 2020 Summer Colour Predictions

With Dulux’s release of its 2020 Summer Colour Predictions for Summer, it’s clear to see that the 70’s vibes are back!

The Cultivate palette – one of the four trend colour palettes identified in the 2020 Dulux Colour Forecast ‘Essence’ – mixes soft, earthy greens and blue-greens with a sprinkling of bold, 70’s accents.

If you’re looking to add a bit of “something something” to your home this summer, why not choose the homeowner’s “secret weapon”?

Paint is a fast and easy way to completely transform a space, and this season, it’s all about combining serene greens with 70s-inspired accents.

As Andrea Lucena-Orr, Dulux Colour and Communications Manager, explains:

A sense of nostalgia has been creeping into design trends for a while now, and in 2020 this will be expressed with 70s references – think shades of eggplant and curd alongside warm timbers and touches of coloured ceramics and glass.

So, to help with your own styling, follow Dulux’s handy tips!

  • Power of contrasts: Add interest by mixing different materials, such as timber, felt, rattan, velvet, glass and steel.
  • Keep it casual: Think relaxed, low-slung seating and complementary pieces with textured natural materials and an outdoor style.
  • Mad about rattan: A sleek rattan cabinet or armchair will suit this scheme’s natural aesthetic, while adding a contemporary touch.
  • Japanese subtlety: Seek out pieces with subtle Japanese styling cues such as black stained timber, handmade ceramics or delicate botanical prints.
  • Light and bright: Keep window furnishings simple – think linen sheers that let the sun filter through.
  • Green goodness: Finish off this natural look with cascading greenery and potted plants in all shapes and sizes.
