A combination of lush indoor plants and soothing paint colours can transform a interior space into a calm haven. Dulux® has some exciting colour trends for 2020, including ‘Cultivate’, a nature-inspired palette, with gentle layers of green, that reinforces our connection with nature and helps bring elements of the natural world inside. Ideal for combatting the chaos of the modern world and creating a space where we can refresh and rejuvenate, these colours embrace slow living and our ability to grow and sustain ourselves in simple ways.
Andrea Lucena-Orr, Dulux Group Colour and Communications Manager, says “I love how powerful colour is when it comes to creating a sense of space and importantly the emotion it can evoke within that space”. Colours in the Dulux ‘Cultivate’ palette include harmonious shades of botanical greens, interspersed with pops of chalky blue, deep plum and yellow curd, creating the perfect contrast.
