Leading paint brand Dulux have come out with the colour of the year for 2017. The colour they believe will be in time with the trends. They have chosen blue and they think that denim drift is neutral palette that will allow other materials to take centre stage.
But why blue? ‘Blue is the colour of life; it is the clothes we wear, the sky we gaze at and the water that revitalises us,’ say Dulux.’Blue has been, and will continue to be, a constant in every aspect of our lives. From the deepest ink blue, to the palest misty blue, this colour spans every spectrum of life; it is a royal colour, but it is also used for workers’ blue jeans.’
To complement the Colour of the Year, Dulux have developed a family tonal colour palette featuring a spectrum of blue tones. While the rich and sophisticated shades will bring your walls to life and exude energy, the lighter tones will be cool and calming with a crisp and airy feel.
So before you start decorating your room, bare in mind denim blue if you want to follow this upcoming trend that I’m sure will take off, especially throughout 2017.
