2019 Colour & Decor Trends

Step into 2019 with class and colour.

This year’s decor trends reflect a desire for redefined indulgence and conscious considerations in the pursuit of luxury. Especially at home and with colour. 

In seeking first class products and experiences, there is an appreciation for traditional practices and old-world craftsmanship, embracing that which blends old and new, past and present.

From the darkness of night, reaching towards the light and following the desire to slow down the advancement of some technologies and the reliance on social media, both of our Colours of the Year are a modern expression of lustrous richness. Through depth of colour and the contrast of light and shadow, these full-bodied verdant hues emulate the feeling of lush greenery, recreating a nature-inspired, calming yet invigorating euphoria.

Curated from our recently renewed paint colour palette and our Dulux Effects Finishes collection, our specially selected 2019 trend colours command attention with class and sophistication.

2019 Trends Colour Palette

Composed of rich, deep hues alongside lighter warm and cool neutrals, this year’s colour collection is a modern version of old-school elegance and refinement.

A selection of darks expresses a worldly, exotic yet heritage aesthetic, with fairer, softer options providing balance.

How to Use 2019 Colour and Decor Trends in Your Home

Explore this ‘with class’ colour story, inspired by these decorating ideas:



Night Watch is both decadent as a feature colour and versatile as a neutral when paired with an accent wall of Mojito Shimmer. 



A front door and shutters painted in Night Watch makes a classic statement against brick or stucco, set off with metallic hardware and finishing touches.



Start with one of our 2019 lighter neutrals (like Hourglass or Venetian Silk Cashmere Clouds) as an overall wall colour, then add a sumptuous, bolder colour with Mountain Lake or Chilled Wine as an accent wall, repeating the colour elsewhere in your decor scheme to confidently express an intentional colour choice. 



Spice up a monochromatic-leaning color scheme with the addition of a single, brightly coloured element - treat night tables to a captivating coat of Dulux Liquid Metal Spiced Squash (018LM), from our 2019 palette of colours.



Cinnamon Diamonds, a dusty pink hue, is all that’s required to provide this otherwise masculine decor scheme of Elusion and tones of Mountain Lake the right amount of femininity.  



Add a touch of modern sophistication to a bathroom - in just one afternoon! - by updating the vanity with alluring and reflective Liquid Metal Tunnel Vision, a beautiful complement to Earthy Cane on the walls.
