Each year, a team of colour and design experts from Dulux identifies the colour trends set to feature in the year ahead and beyond, reflecting and defining the mood of the moment. For 2022, Dulux has unveiled Bright Skies™ as the Colour of the Year for 2022. This serene shade of blue is designed to emulate the vast open sky and bring a feeling of calmness and optimism into your space.
To celebrate the launch, the popular Java range from DFS including a swivel chair, armchair, footstools, a two, three or four-seater sofa and a generous corner sofa will be available in Bright Skies™. Customers will also be able to choose from an additional five shades from the first of Dulux’s four complementary palettes for the year, the Greenhouse palette, including Calming Meadow, Tranquil Dawn™, River Valley™, Denim Drift™ and Fresh Foliage.
“Whether on your walls or on the sofa, Dulux Colour of the Year 2022 Bright Skies™ will soon be transforming the living rooms of the UK by adding a much needed breath of fresh air. Joyful, uplifting and optimistic, this dreamy summer sky blue is the antidote to being stuck inside. It reconnects us with the sky and makes even the smallest rooms appear airy and spacious. There are also four beautiful collections of colours that make the most of Bright Skies™ and it’s the Greenhouse palette of gentle nature inspired hues which come to life in every element of the DFS Java collection. From beautiful sofa and footstools to a stylish swivel chair, full immersion in your favourite colour scheme has never been easier or more comfortable.”
Neutral living room colours like creams, greys and light browns create a lovely calming atmosphere and invite a sense of serenity.
