Do you love a cosy atmosphere? Combine the warm pink tone of Heart Wood – the Dulux Colour of the Year 2018 – with cocoa, clay and blush pink for an earthy colour scheme that will create a snuggle-in atmosphere throughout your home.

Nurturing natural shades

Natural and comforting bedroom

Many of us want curl-up comfort in our bedrooms, so a large expanse of Heart Wood is perfectly set off by a coffee or terracotta shades trim. Use it to add visual interest with a two-tone wall or to frame windows or skirting boards. If you want to complete the room’s look, leather, rich wood colours and a touch of metallic are recommended.

Layered colours in your kitchen

Warm colours in a kitchen

A pairing of the soft pink of Heart Wood and a milky cocoa is ideal for creating a sense of warmth in even the most minimalistic kitchen. Painting the underside of worktops in the same colour as feature walls also adds a stylish touch and softens the clean lines of kitchen units.
