In Focus | Dulux Summer Trends 2019

This summer, the focus is on creating calming interior spaces which allow us to block out visual noise and turn our attention to self-care. Wholeself is one of the four palettes identified in the 2019 Dulux Colour Forecast Filter - embracing soft minimalism, with palettes featuring gentle colour ways, contrasting textures and dustings of mint and lemon. The beautiful new tones speak of simplicity and understated luxury, pairing beautifully with this season’s mid-tone timbers, soft undulating lines and relaxed design detailing, “The Wholeself palette is all about slowing down and tuning into the things that really matter,” says Dulux Colour and Communications Manager, Andrea Lucena-Orr.

“Expect to see a paring back of the overdone or unnecessary... environmental awareness will be an important thread running through design in 2019; rather than discarding pieces we no longer have a use for, we’ll be encouraged to repurpose or reimagine them in a new way.”
— Andrea Lucena-Orr
