Research by Dulux showed a desire to hold onto individuality, while being part of something bigger: sharing, collaborating, caring and helping. The palette below has a fresh, playful mood which is ideal for reflecting this, it’s perfect for creating a shared space to enjoy together. Cities are growing, demographics and social settings are changing, and so the importance of having a sense of belonging and being part of a group is increasingly relevant.

Simple tips for sharing space as a family

The team from our Global Aesthetic Center has curated this warm and welcoming colour collection: SHARED INDIVIDUALISM, to create a shared space with a fresh and playful mood to share ideas and dreams, and enjoy the sense of belonging.

Clever use of colours to create harmony at home

“Using a shared palette allows you to create pockets of individuality that work together to create decor cohesion. How do you make the walls of a shared home reflect the individual personalities within? It’s all about warm, welcoming colors working together. This palette has a bright neon, a soft pink and a lively cerise, but put it alongside the calming influence of Denim Drift and you capture all the character, without compromising your overall decor look.”

Ideas for your own breakout space
