4 Color Trends 2019 Dulux Australia

Posted By Gudy Herder / September 19, 2018 / 2 Comments

This is probably the biggest Color Trend Forecast we share of a painting company. Dulux Australia being part of AkzoNobel has revealed a few days ago their take on 2019 colors under the, again, wonderfulart direction of Bree Leech.

FILTER is the leitmotiv of next years’ Color Forecast by Akzo Nobel and its branch Dulux in Australia. Mindful consumption is a key theme for 2019 and we can expect to see a paring back of the unnecessary and a greater emphasis on repurposing and reimagining objects surrounding us. The result is a new kind of bespoke where the traditions of the past are celebrated in dynamic and modern ways.

When the world is so busy and the influences are so many, how do we filter out the noise and focus on what matters?

Repair, Legacy, Wholeself, and Identity are the four Color Trends for 2019, each addressed towards a different lifestyle connected to different emotions and translated into a palette that comprises 12 colors each.

1// REPAIR

This color theme helps us revive our relationship with nature and embrace a more holistic and ‘circular’ way of living taking into consideration the life cycle of the products we purchase.

Our comfortable, carefree existence begins to fade into the past, as we adopt a wabi-sabi sensibility that appreciates the beauty in faults and flaws, imperfection is not a trend but fully integrated in the design world today.

As we heal our rifts with nature, we fill our spaces with humble and authentic tones, inviting in an interplay of beautiful imperfections. The worn and weathered is reborn alongside the new and modern. Optimism and peace is restored.

Hues such as Cinnamon Sand can create a warm but natural colour palette that is perfect in a cosy space. Natural linens, rough painted brick and weathered architectural details create a homely and relaxed atmosphere.

Repair is about using what you have and making it special through the process of mixing and matching with newer, modern pieces. Look for well-loved vintage items that may need some extra care spent to bring them back to life. Use a backdrop of neutral hues such as Ohai Half, allowing furniture details to shine.

Uplifting colours smooth out the rough edges with their authentic optimism. Highlight cabinetry with colour you love and pare back strong schemes with natural finishes such as timber and concrete.

Staying within a colour family is an easy way to create a harmonious colour scheme. Combine mustard with yellow-based green and warm timber finishes for a cohesive look and feel.

2// LEGACY

What is the legacy that we leave behind? Every day we tread the tightrope of time, pulled forward by hot, new trends and futuristic technologies. But there’s no ignoring our past, the ultimate symbol of elegance and time-honoured tradition.

Legacy brings the past and present into timeless harmony with an eclectic mix of influences while giving value to the timeless and elegant over the new and disposable.

Looking to learn from traditional crafts and techniques, Legacy takes iconic forms and elegant looks and marries them with modern statements of style. It calls up history’s most cherished classics and icons and adapts them to fit a new, modern vision.

Saturated hues are tempered by paler shades such as Legendary Lilac and Pink Linen Half, creating a perfect backdrop to an intermingling of old-world charm and new-world chic.

Rich, bold color can be a powerful decorating tool. For a tonally immersive experience, call on variations within the same color family. Here we’ve graduated from the rich red of Dulux Belly Fire, through to the softer pinks of Dulux Pink Linen Half.

3// WHOLESELF

Do you feel like your brain is in constant overdrive? It’s time to switch off the smart phone and clear out the mental clutter. Wholeself helps us to create a calm, distraction-free zone where we can dial back the volume and reconnect with ourselves.

 

Stop, breathe and simply be in the moment. Our home is our temple, a place where we can ignite the senses through gentle, nurturing tones. We remove all the fussy details to channel a sense of quiet minimalism. Rounded curves and soft, plush surfaces are enriched by subtle layerings of texture. Life has never felt so good.

A soothing tonal palette helps to create a room where you can switch off both visually and mentally. Beauty is found in subtle textural details and quiet color accents.

4// IDENTITY

It’s time to break out of the mould and show us the real you. Identity speaks to the radical, non-conformist in us all. It empowers us to live on the wild side and express our true inner creative. Who cares what anyone else thinks?

 

Rules and conventions are thrown out the window, freeing us up to experiment with a bold and individualistic vision. Filled with fun and spirited energy, bursting with the spontaneity of youth and wild optimism, colour becomes the adrenaline for our senses.

A mish-mash of modern multi-cultural influences call up the colourful, futuristic vibes of sci-fi fantasy and off-the-wall selfie culture. They empower us to be brave and confident and to flaunt the fabulous, colourful quirks and flaws that make us who we are.

Bold hues can be used to call out simple, unassuming architectural details transforming them into features within your home. This gives you the option to feature strong statement colours such as Red Clown and Mondrian Blue in small but impactful doses.

The Dulux Trends are so well done, you can even go back to previous years and see their 2018 or 2016 (very popular with more than 57K shares!) forecast, still very much on-point and suitable if you look for color inspiration that are not necessarily the latest trend, but feel good because you already have associated certain colors and seen them around for a while.
