Be bolder with sun-kissed neutrals
Embrace the wave of new neutrals by trying Toasted Terracotta for a happy, holiday-inspired hue. This tanned tone is a great way to express personality in relaxed style. Use Dulux Weathershield All Weather Protection on your masonry – equipped with a Stay Clean Technology, your walls will be shielded against dirt and mould growth within the paint film for up to 15 years.
Combine masonry with darker colours on your front door for a fabulous focal point. Use Black for a stylish balance against the fiery undertones of Toasted Terracotta. Paint your wood and metal surfaces in Dulux Weathershield Quick Dry Gloss – its high-performance waterproof technology will ensure your wood and metal surfaces stay mould-free for up to 6 years. With a high-sheen finish, your deep colours will really pop, too.
Enhance your garden inspired by nature’s greens
Create a tranquil space for relaxing in your back garden. Paint the smooth half of your garden wall in a dusty green like Green Ivy. This soft shade provides the perfect backdrop for rest and relaxation when paired with textured masonry like brick, which you can paint in a rich neutral like Warm Truffle.
Modernise your furniture and add a crisp finish by updating benches and tables in Smooth Flint, a cooling grey with pale blue undertones. Use Dulux Weathershield Multisurface Quick Dry Satin for uPVC, wood and metal surfaces. Its weatherproof film will protect against mould, leaving paintwork looking new for longer.
Create stand-out using bold greys
Our colour expert, Marianne Shillingford, Creative Director at Dulux UK, tells us; “Grey is truly versatile and complements a broad range of tones. Paint your masonry walls in Concrete Grey for a sleek look. Go even further and boldly define your outdoor walls with a darker, deep Gallant Grey available via our MixLab service at selected stores, along with a range of many more shades. This rich, ashy tone is effortless but sophisticated. Use contrasting colours on your trim for eye-catching accents. Vast Lake is a soft and silky blue that will really pop against your masonry for bursts of drama, especially with a mid-sheen paint like Dulux Weathershield Multisurface Quick Dry Satin.”
In addition to Marianne’s recommendations, bring your patio space to life with lush, vivid plants accentuated by modern vases. With grey masonry, you have the perfect backdrop to a forest of wild blossoming colours, sure to leave the neighbours envious.
