When entering a new year we are looking for positive vibes and motivators to lead us forward with the best intentions of what the year will bring. With this in mind the Dulux colour of the year for 2022 couldn't seem more fitting, introducing: Bright Skies.
Bright Skies is a light, airy and optimistic blue that’s good for the soul. It promises to open up and revitalise your home. With brand ambassador Dr Alex George on side, the 2022 colour of the year really is about keeping the blue from your brain and breathing life into your home.
Marianne Shillingford, Creative Director of Dulux explained 'Right now, people want to feel revitalized and enjoy the freedoms that are returning to them, to look out and bring in new ideas. What better inspiration can we take than the endless skies around us?'
Whilst many people may avoid blue believing that it looks masculine or childish and instead opt for more neutral colour palettes in their homes, the Luxeology Home team want to show you how implementing a blue colour scheme into your home can lead to sophisticated and luxurious interior design.
'While we're used to bringing green into our homes with plants and foliage, we're not so used to bringing the sky into our home, other than through the window. I think this will be another revolution, especially painted on the ceiling.'
The ceiling is often the most forgotten or ignored surface in many peoples homes, but why are we avoiding the opportunity to create something extraordinary? We should consider the ceiling as another wall, a feature and an experience!
By using a fresh colour like Bright Skies on our ceilings we are not only drawing attention to the space but it is also fantastic for reflecting light and opening up smaller spaces.
Here you can see just one of many wonderful ways to enhance your interiors with the Dulux colour of the year 2022. Pairing the soft paint colour Bright Skies with a bold and graphic wall mural is a great way to add intrigue to your home. Then comes the opportunity to further implement your personal style, here we have chosen neutral, light and bright seating that has a contrasting black wood detail. This teamed with a sumptuous navy blue rug adds a cosy inviting warmth to the space. We've then opted for elegant golden accessories to compliment and highlight the blue hues in this scheme.
