Colour Lookbook: Refresh your home with Bright Skies™

When selecting our Colour of the Year 2022, we asked a panel of international design experts to help us understand the mood of the moment and share their insights on the colour trends that will shape the way we live. Our colour experts then get to work choosing the best colour to reflect those findings, a shade that will feel just right in our homes for years to come.

Over the past 18 months, our lives have been turned upside down, but we’ve also had time to rethink the way we live and reassess what’s really important. This year, our discussion went digital and we talked about colour trends, including:

  • The expanding role of the home
  • How nature is essential to our lives
  • How the arts can bring us comfort and inspiration
  • How important it is to embrace new voices and ideas for a brighter future


It’s these discussions that led to our key themes, open skies and a breath of fresh air. And from here, we were able to choose the Dulux Colour of the Year 2022.

Bright SkiesTM is a light, airy and optimistic blue that’s good for the soul. It promises to open up and revitalise your home. Around it, we’ve created four easy-to-use colour palettes, so you can refresh your spaces with different colour combinations.

Here are four ideas for you to try in your home:
