Dulux Colour of the Year 2018 is Heart Wood and it’s a soft, welcoming pink. But this doesn’t mean that it always feels calm. Bring together lively yellows and zesty greens to invigorate the home and lift the warm tones of Heart Wood. These vibrant colour combinations will help to explore the spaces most familiar to us in new ways.

Kids’ bedroom inspiration

Colourful spots in children’s bedroom

This stimulating design idea for children’s bedrooms takes contrasting colours and brings them to life against a neutral background – to inspirational effect. By creating natural, pebble-shaped pops of colour, rather than spherical polka dots, the overall effect is playful and modern and it’s easy to create.
