Representing the return to freedom and symbolising optimism, is the Dulux colour of 2022: Bright Skies. It embodies the liberation we are all yearning for next year and conveys a calm, positive undertone. We absolutely love it!
To give more of a flavour of how Dulux sees this hue reflected within homes, they have created four ‘ColourFutures’ palettes – Greenhouse, Studio, Salon and Workshop.
All of the 37 shades look great alongside Bright Skies. The combinations within their palettes can create an array of different looks, and whether you want to create a traditional or contemporary space, Brighter Skies can feature.
In the words of Marianne Shillingford, the creative director of Dulux UK:
“Right now, people want to feel revitalised and enjoy the freedoms that are returning to them, to look out and bring in new ideas. What better inspiration can we take than the endless skies around us?
“Biophilic design, which embraces design cues inspired by nature, is entering the mainstream, and it is now widely known that nature makes us feel better and taking steps to bring the outside in enhances our sense of well-being.
“Whether clients want spaces to work, relax, teach or exercise, it is essential to have colours that reflect the optimism and desire for a fresh, new start that is top of the agenda for the year ahead. However, Bright Skies and the palettes are not about idle daydreaming. It is about turning those dreams into reality and forging ahead with the changes that we want to make.”
