When forecasting their 2021 colour palette, Dulux have taken inspiration from nature with their soothing, earthy tones interrupted with pops of coral and stormy blue.
Dulux stylist Julia Green says there’s no right or wrong way to use these colours in your home, instead it’s about expressing your personal style and creating a space that nurtures, inspires and feels truly your own.
Updating your interior colour is a quick and easy way to re-energise your space and the bedroom is the perfect place to start. A new colour can help change the mood and define it away from your work area to create a relaxation zone.
Julia says a colour update can empower your sense of falling in love with your home once again, and it won’t cost you the earth.
Julia Green’s bedroom styling tips
Start with artwork
Use the colours and tones in a favourite painting or print to inform the palette in your bedroom.
Create a focal point
Every room needs a focal point as it’s what draws you into a space. The natural focus in a bedroom is the wall behind the bed – draw attention to this with a striking bedhead or artwork.
Think beyond walls
If you don’t fancy changing your wall colour or you’re simply more comfortable with white, add this season’s rich colours in bedding, soft furnishings, and accessories.
Up the comfort factor
Your bedroom needs to be comfortable and inviting; think a soft, cushioned bedhead you can sit up against and read a book, a medley of comfy cushions and bedlinen in breathable fabrics.
Mix and match
For a fun and eclectic look (and less hassle come laundry day) combine sheets and pillowcases in different colours and prints – just make sure they all sit within the same colour story.
