Colour Lookbook: Four Ways to Revitalise your Home Office with the Light, Airy and Optimistic Hues of Bright Skies™

Refresh your home office with Bright Skies - Colour of the Year 2022 - colour inspiration from Dulux. Bring a breath of fresh air into your home office with the perfect paint palette colour schemes. 


If you’re going to be working from home for the long haul, now might be a good time to revitalise your workspace. With the right paint palettes, you can turn any room or area of your home into a functional and fun place to work.

Our Colour of the Year 2022, Bright SkiesTM, is a light, airy and optimistic blue that can breathe new life into your home office.

What’s more, when you combine it with shades from its four supporting paint palettes – Workshop, Greenhouse, Studio and Salon – you can create the most inspiring home office colour schemes.

If your space needs to be flexible to be used in a number of different ways, the multicoloured Workshop palette makes it easy to define specific zones or create visual connection between rooms.

Go for the Greenhouse palette to bring the positive effects of the outside world into your home. Select the Studio palette if you want to design somewhere you can escape to, feel inspired and dream. Or if it’s an easy and open backdrop you want to create, the airy, neutral tones of the Salon palette are perfect.

Here are four home office ideas for you to try:

Home office ideas: Paint a split wall

This is paint effect is where you use different colours to split a wall in two, hence the name. It’s a simple idea that can make a serious impact in your space. Here are two ways you can try this technique in your home office with the Dulux Colour of the Year.

If you want to add warmth to your workspace, go for a combination of colours from the Workshop and Studio paint palettes. Here, we painted two thirds of the wall in Pressed Petal and the rest in Rose Canopy. Then framed the shades with our Colour of the Year 2022, Bright SkiesTM for contrast.

Alternatively, you can pair a neutral, such as Morning Oats from the Salon palette, with Bright SkiesTM. A split wall like this can invite calm and clarity into your workspace, helping you to concentrate and reduce any feelings of stress.

Home office ideas: Get creative with stripes

There are many home office colour schemes that can boost your productivity and creativity. The subtle, soothing shades found within the Studio palette can help you create a space where you feel relaxed and inspired.

Why not make the most of these trending colours by painting them in stripes? Whether you prefer horizontal or vertical stripes, both will create an inspiring focal point in your workspace.

We combined Bright Skies™ with Restful Slumber and Birch Root for these horizontal stripes. 

And chose to pair Bright Skies™ with Warm Straw and Artist’s Brush for these vertical stripes.

Home office ideas: Zone off your workspace

You can create a dedicated workspace just about anywhere, if you know how. Zoning is a smart way to distinguish different areas of your home using colour. And the vibrant and joyful shades of the Workshop palette are perfect for the job.

With our new Colour of the Year, Bright SkiesTM, as your base colour, use the contrasting Golden Cookie to zone off your home office. You can outline the area with a strip of Lemon Jester, too. These bright shades will not only make the space functional, you’ll have fun working there.

Home office ideas: Focus on one colour

While our Colour of the year 2022 works with a host of other shades, it can perform just as well on its own. So, if you want to take a fresh approach to the way you work, wrap your home office in Bright SkiesTM.

Inspired by the natural world, this beautiful blue can act as a breath of fresh air in your space, making it feel more open. And next to large windows, it can accentuate the natural light that’s trickling in. Don’t blame us, if you don’t want your workday to end!
