Dulux has launched its 2019 colour forecast themed Filter, which has been devised through prism of wellness. The forecast has been the result of extensive research and also observations from the Milan Furniture Fair which was undertaken by Dulux colour and communications manager Andrea Lucena-Orr and trend forecaster Bree Leech.
“This theme highlights the aim to hone in on what is meaningful and to mindfully tune into what we care about,” said Lucena-Orr, “Whether it’s filtering our smart device usage and longer working hours, filtering our consumption of the new and shiny, or simply filtering out the noise of life - we strive to focus on what really matters.”
The forecast is shown in four key palettes: Wholeself, Identity, Repair and Legacy.
Wholeself concentrates on wellness, creating a calming environment with light muted shades, warm neutrals and sweet apricot pinks.
Identity is described as an anti-trend. It encourages bold experimentation with a playful, youthful and optimistic outlook. Bright block colours inspired by the Memphis movement are mixed with grid patterns and contrasts of texture.
Repair draws inspiration from the natural world and calls to question the contemporary culture of excessive consumption and waste. The palette features autumnal colours of warm greens and lively yellow, mixed with earthy cinnamons and siennas.
Lastly the Legacy palette is influenced the trend of contemporizing traditional spaces, and celebrates craftsmanship and timelessness. The palette is rich, dark and decadent with warm pinks, lilac, mauve as well as reds, blues and greens.
