Dulux Colour Futures 2017

It might only be a brief pop-up of a show but Dulux launched their Colour Futures trends this week and they look certain to be useful for the year to come. Myself and 2 of our recent Surface graduates worked on the Material Lab 'Think Space' room which bought the trends to life with fitting materials.

The trends come about as a result of lots of research by the Dulux colour team who get together earlier in the year to discuss human lifestyle trends and then figure how they relate to our built environments and with it, the colours that inhabit them.

There is always a Colour of the Year and in 2017 Dulux predict that we'll all be going blue, using Denim Drift and it's associated pallet in our homes and places of work. We'll see how our students take to this and the 4 other trends when we introduce our live project later in the year.
