The Dulux 2020 Colour Forecast for the coming year focuses on all which grounds us. More than ever, our homes have become a sanctuary from the demands of the outside world, and our desire to pause and reconnect with what matters to us most reflects the overarching theme for 2020’s colour trends – Essence. The four palettes include Cultivate, Comeback, Grounded, and Indulge – think a renewed appreciation for nature – with colours representing the essence of current social trends and global movements. Recycled materials, nature-inspired palettes, and furniture that blends old and new will come to the fore, signalling a more mindful approach to the curation of our living spaces.

Colours for 2020 are more restrained than in previous years. Brights are pulled back and influenced by nature. They appear in smaller doses – think feature walls and details – and are often used tonally as a backdrop for hero furniture pieces.

We’re seeing a more tonal palette for 2020, and Grounded is a perfect example. It has a soft, neutral feel that creates a sense of relaxation in a space, with gold and coral adding touches of luxe.

The Indulge palette is not for the faint-hearted – it’s dramatic and exciting and is guaranteed to add wow factor to a master bedroom, dining room or living room
