This is Dulux Colour of the Year 2022 and here’s how to use it

With every September, the interiors’ world buzzes of excitement when Dulux announce the shade set to take over our homes in the following year. So, say hello to Bright Skies, the Colour of the Year 2022, an inspiring light blue shade ideal for designing relaxing kitchens, bedrooms and bathrooms. 

In 2019, our homes were dressed in a warm, mood-boosting amber shade called Spiced Honey, while in 2020, Tranquil Dawn, a soft sage green colour, became the go-to for many. Then, 2021’s Brave Ground was the perfect neutral for designing calming schemes. So, after the challenging year we’ve all had, there is no wonder we’re keeping with the same nature-inspired tone in 2022. 

Along with Dulux’s Colour of the Year 2022, come four palettes to help revive your home, each including ways to use this fresh blue shade with other colours to best complement it. Take a look…
