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 2021, Dulux has announced Brave Ground™ as the Colour of the Year. This earthy, reassuring, elemental hue is designed to reflect the foundational strength we can draw from nature, to embolden us to look towards the future and adapt to its challenges.

To celebrate, Brave Ground™ has now been added as a colour option for our iconic French Connection Zinc range, available exclusively at DFS. The Zinc sofa features smooth angled arms, buttoned back detailing and stylish raised legs, that lend it an effortlessly cool, mid-century modern feel.

Marianne Shillingford, Creative Director at Dulux, says...

The colours on our walls are the backdrop to how we live our life. For many of us, lockdown has served to emphasise how important our home environment has become, it has been the place where we work, learn, relax. It can lift us up, nurture us, comfort us.

We continue to live through uncertain times. In 2021, the warm and grounding tones of Brave Ground™ will allow us to find certainty in the strength from the very ground beneath our feet, emboldening us to go forward and begin to live again and giving us the flex to adapt to the ever changing circumstances we face.
