Recently Dulux announced Heart Wood as it’s 2018 colour of the year. This beautiful, warm dusky mauve is expected to be just as popular in the industry as last year’s colour Denim Drift, which we’re seeing an increasing amount of moving into Autumn.
This year’s colour was chosen by a panel of experts who looked at emerging trends and how they will in turn impact the way we live in 2018. Life has become faster paced and unpredictable, as we move into a world with more expectations and demands, the desire for a safe sanctuary has become increasingly important. Very few people can shut down and enjoy the silence of their home as we are becoming ever dependant on technology. Inspired by these trending insights the warm hues in Heart Wood reflect the importance of creating an inviting retreat.
Our homes are personal to each and every one of us therefore we need to create environments that best suit our mood and lifestyle. Inspired by the warmth of natural wood and the tactile comfort of leather, this highly versatile colour is the shade that grounds all of this year’s trend palettes.
