THE COLOUR EDIT: DULUX'S 2019 COLOUR FORECAST


CURATING LIFESTYLE,

THROUGH THE FILTER OF EXPERIENCES.


The TLSE team know how busy life can get. With so much background noise amongst the busyness of our day-to-day routines, it’s easy to lose track of what’s most important. It's with this in mind, that we love Dulux's 2019 colour trends; designed to focus on stillness, simplicity and honesty, they encourage you to find a new sense of self, your purpose within.


The 2019 Dulux colour forecast palettes set the colour spectrum for the coming year. With a range of effects that allow for the complete transformation of spaces, each palette reflects key influences driving current trends across a range of diverse design industries.





What should you expect to look out for?


The palettes, which encourage self-expression and creativity, feature organic shapes, frayed edges, contrasting textures and repurposed vintage pieces set against a backdrop of earthy neutrals, saturated greens and citrus brights.


Also look out for a greater emphasis on repurposing and reimagining objects surrounding us.


The spaces we occupy tell a story, and Dulux’s 2019 colour palettes are perfect for nurturing and empowering the stories we all have to tell. Rules are there to be broken, rather than following any prescribed formula. The focus, instead, is on creating joyful spaces that nourish our souls.


“This year’s theme, FILTER, speaks to our collective craving for individuality and personal expression,” says Dulux Colour Expert, Andrea Lucena-Orr. “It helps us mindfully tap out all the distractions, and focus on the things that move and inspire us. Our confidence with colour is growing, and with this the drive to create spaces that reflect our history, hopes and dreams. Mindful consumption is a key theme for 2019".





So here's the lineup; the palettes and colours you'll be seeing this 2019.



R E P A I R


There is a big focus on taking a considerate approach to the objects we use everyday, in order to have a positive impact on nature and the world around us. From Keep Cups to reusable shopping bags, we are all aiming to repair our relationship with the natural world.


The Repair Palette focuses on our need to examine our consumption and waste, favouring vintage, sustainable, repurposed and recyclable products. All of this is found in the dirty greens, yellow and earthy hues of cinnamon and sienna. Repair’s colours exude warmth and a vintage feel.











W H O L E S E L F


The constant swiping right, liking, tweeting, Insta-gramming or whatever it may be on our digital devices, is in one word - exhausting! And as much as we like to keep up to date with all the latest trends and updates of the world, our brains are going into overdrive from the constant glow of our digital age. Now, more than ever it is important to take time out.


The Wholeself Palette allow us to log off from the digital world and fall into a calming, distraction free zone full of cosy pinks; these are offset against warm neutrals, golds and mauve-greys. Wholeself celebrates minimalism, through undulating forms.











L E G A C Y


Each generation bring with it a new intelligence, taking the best from the past and reinventing it for the present. Our damaging consumerist habits however, have dire repercussions on our legacies for generations to come.


The Legacy Palette balances rapid innovation with old-world charm, the result being a nod to the elegant past and present combining eclectic patterns and block colour. Legacy features saturated colour in warm hues of pale pinks, lilacs and mauves, with accents of red, blue and green to punctuate the scheme.









I D E N T I T Y


There's an ‘I’ in paint, and Dulux have made sure to feature a palette that focuses on pleasing our own individual tastes, joining the brave non-conformists in rejecting labels that don’t fit whilst allowing for the true expression of ourselves.


The Identity Palette celebrates imperfections, and is all about bold experimentation; this is seen through combining block colours, clashing patterns, bold textures and mixing gloss levels. It’s an ‘anything goes’ look that is playful and youthful. Pale colours are a base for unusual combinations of saturated blue, purple and oranges.
