Colour Inspiration | Dulux Forecast 2021

blog cover v2

We love seeing the annual Dulux Colour forecast come through each year, full of on-trend, liveable colours for New Zealand interiors. This launch is designed around colour themes, which give a great starting off point for interior inspiration.

Dulux have presented three nurturing palettes for 2021 which evoke familiarity and comfort: Retreat, Nourish and Reset. ‘From homely aesthetic to rejuvenating hues, these trends look to create a sense of renewal whilst holding onto nostalgic elements in your home.’

Have a look at these three themes for 2021 below, where we’ve developed the palette to show how you can bring these colours into your home through not only paint, but soft furnishings and wallpaper. Be inspired to show your home some love!


We spend most of our lives in a digitally saturated environment. Nourish encourages us to unplug and be present in the moment. Indulge in a nurturing palette of warm neutrals, greens and yellows which revitalise your home and nourishes the soul.


From sleeping to eating and working to working out – most homes are becoming the interior hub for many busy, action-packed days. What was once a place for rest and relaxation now embodies a living environment of family, work and play. Stormy blues and soft greys create a contemporary look for flexible living in your home.


With uplifting blue-greens and reds and a bold sense of renewal, we welcome the new normal with open arms. It’s time to renew ourselves, by embracing unified, energising colours and retro influences.
