For anyone who’s passionate about colour and home decorating, the launch of the Dulux Colour of the Year is like Christmas come early! So, you can imagine how giddy we were to talk to you about the Brave Ground palette.
How does the Dulux Colour of the Year come about?
The process takes 18 months in total, from initial research to the launch. It all comes together in a publication called Colour Futures, think of it as our Bible.
The trend experts don’t just pick a colour at random, there’s always a story behind it. They take a human focused approach and look at what’s happening to people, how we’re living and what we value at this moment. From there, the narrative behind the colour, and its four trend palettes, is born.
What’s the story behind the Brave Ground palette?
All our Dulux Colour of the Year choices are a sign of the times, Tranquil Dawn, Spiced Honey, just to name a few. Brave Ground is all about finding the courage to embrace change and to make fearless decisions. And this couldn’t be more relevant for what’s happening in the world right now – not that we could’ve predicted all this!
We’re spending more time in our homes than ever. It’s where we live, work, rest and recharge. So, we need them to work harder for us. That’s why paint has become more than just paint.
Why did we choose Brave Ground?
It’s the Mother Earth of colours. Some may think that brown is dull or boring, but brown is beautiful. Brave Ground is a grounding and supporting colour. It’s not in your face, it gives you a big hug. It’s a bedrock for decorating.
What are its four complementary palettes?
With the Dulux Colour of the Year comes four beautiful colour palettes. Each tell a different story and pairs perfectly with Brave Ground.
