What will your walls be wearing in 2018?

December 04, 2017

According to the paint brand Dulux, the shade for 2018 is a muted heather-grey.

The company has declared that its colour of the year for 2018 is Heart Wood, which sits somewhere between smoky taupe and dusky mauve.  It's a warm neutral with a hint of heather and although most people think of neutrals as being black, white, grey, brown and beige, this versatile shade also fits the bill.

 

Dulux has announced Heart Wood as its Colour of the Year 2018.

Trend forecasting


80 colour experts meet together with professionals including social and economic forecasters as well as architects and tech leaders to pin down 'the mood of the moment'

They consider what is happening in the world and how we behave - like where we go on holiday, what we're buying, any political or wellbeing influences and their conclusion this year was of 'instability'

Uncertain times


"We don't trust the news, we don't know what's going to happen next,

 we have divisions in our society and it's affecting how we're living"

 says Marianne Shillingford, Dulux's creative director.

"So, we are taking comfort in our home, where we can feel safe, secure and nurtured.  

We can control how it looks, who comes there and how we interact with the world from it"

Heart Wood links perfectly with many textures and materials and is a useful addition to the existing trend for nude pink, deep indigo and warm metals like copper and brass, but more conventionally, it also works well with off-white or soft beige.
