HOW TO NAIL SUMMER’S COLOUR TRENDS
Oozing ‘80s glamour (but in a totally modern way) and with references to luxury hotels in exotic destinations, this colour combo speaks to the design world’s ongoing love for retro style, and evokes an upbeat holiday feeling that’s quintessentially ‘summer’.
And while it may seem like a cocktail of jaunty colour, this trend is actually great news for neutral lovers or anyone a little bit colour-shy – because it all begins with crisp, white walls.
“Incorporating uplifting colour and prints in a white space can be transformative, lifting the soul and making you feel more dynamic and creative” says Dulux Colour Expert Andrea Lucena-Orr. “If you’re hesitant to dip into colour, fear not! Even small doses of these exuberant shades can have a huge impact”.
2. Go one step further by painting one or two smaller pieces of furniture in the same striking hue.
3. Add tonal accessories such as coloured glassware, bold artworks, patterned cushions and bed linen. For the rest of the walls choose a cool white like Dulux’s hugely popular LexiconR Quarter (pictured).
