2013 Paint trends: part 2

On January 24th, 2013 by .

Embracing the trend of Fluro, Dulux introduces ‘Collective Passion’ , their second collection from a series of five for 2013 . With punchy splashes of neon orange, red, pink, yellow and green, this collection is all about building on colour, much like a piece of artwork.  The palette is then harmonised with pale neutrals for the floor and furniture, using polished and highly reflective materials.

It’s refreshing to see new paint techniques, which move away from painting a room with just one colour.  Whilst it is still popular to create a feature wall, this is decorating on a whole new level! I love the second from last image with the grey sofa; the colours on the wall have been applied in painterly layers, this draws the eye up, and by using accessories in the same tone the look is pulled together.

To mirror this look, be creative with the application of paint, consider using panels of colour that graduate in intensity (look at the bedroom below for an example of this technique) add interest to long corridors by layering strong and fiery tones such as pink and orange.  Treat your walls like a large canvas, feel free, and try to have some fun, although do plan out your colours before you begin.  A good idea is to paint a scaled down version on a large piece of paper, that way you can test your scheme before you commit to painting the walls.

    I’m so excited to see new and creative paint trends this year. The ombre effect has been popular in fashion for a while now and it’s great to see it make the move over to interiors too. My favourite use of paint here is that neon yellow wall with the artwork created from the same paint and the bright green pillar against the grey.

    Wow! Wonderfull and original ideas for painting our home! We love the nordic blancket of the first pic! It is perfectly matching with de degrade of the wall! Awesome combination!

    I love the bare painted wall and the tiled floor look, it is the perfect contrast of hard and warm
