Dulux Colour Forecast - 2014

Retro Visionaries

Influenced by styles of the late 20th century, when digital culture was first emerging and still being shaped by icons of the 50s, The Retro Visionaries aesthetic is quirky, colourful and energetic.

The Digital Nomads

A global fusion of tribal aesthetics derived from clashing cultures and resulting in juxtaposed colours form digital patterns and eclectic interiors. The Digital Nomad creates a style where traditional boundaries are no longer defined.

Precious Elementals

The Precious Elementals innately respect and revere our earth's natural resources, elements and geometric forms. They are inspired by its colours and shapes and interpret them to create beautiful compositions within their interiors. Mineral and metal colours modernise pastels and soft greys, while patinas and raw finishes reflect nature's weathering effects.

The Romantic Spirits

Romanticising decorative periods of history, The Romantic Spirits search for ways to incorporate nostalgia and antiquities into their technologically-dominated world. They are attracted to modern design that reveals elements of romance from simple embellishments or flourishes resembling calligraphy strokes, to skilfully turned timber forms with a modern twist. Finishes that capture history such as patinas and worn looks are favoured to contrast against moody colour.
