2024 Paint Colour & Decor Trends

2022 Dulux Paint Colour of The Year: Olive Sprig

Checking Out | Transforming to Wonder & Awe | Defying + Reinventing

As we enter a new era of explosive creativity and change, the coming years will see unprecedented shifts in the way we work, communicate, take care of our health, build and navigate our environments, explore digital worlds, create and design, and even how we share our own identities with the world.

The prevailing winds of change indicate that cultural undercurrents are shifting in positive, expansive creative and LIMITLESS ways. This year’s design trends and colour palettes are expressed as volumes instead of by unique names because each design direction ultimately represents a piece of a larger, more integrated whole, with the freedom to blend design elements from Volumes I, II and III.

Dulux 2024 Colour of the Year: Limitless 

A fresh, warm hue, Limitless (DLX1091-3) Dulux 2024 Paint Colour of the Year, contains both the power of a primary and the essence of a neutral. It is strong enough to stand as the leading colour of many projects, yet works equally well as a supporting tone to both warm and cool shades.

Trends Volume I

Checking out the world at large, tuning elsewhere.

Reflecting an inward-looking focus to create a deeper, more holistically connected relationship with oneself, the calming, soothing and softening tints and tones of Volume I are offset by warmed earthen and cooling twilight shades. Ancient and futuristic references combine for a quiet and calming spirit.
