Dulux Colour Forecast 2022 - Colours for the way we live now

Updated: Sep 24, 2021

Dulux has just released their Colour Forecast for 2022, with three distinct colour palettes that are inspired by our natural surroundings and speak to the ways our world has changed. Flourish, Wonder and Restore invite us to discover a newfound sense of calm, reflecting on what we have learnt and embracing our hopes for the future.


With rich and sensual hues, from the deep blues and greens of Dulux Kenepuru Sound, Dulux Karori and Dulux Browns Bay to the earthy tones of Dulux Silo Park and Dulux Deep Leather, brightened with the glamour of Dulux Gold Vintage, this palette is all about adventure and passion for life. Flourish complements these colours with decadent materials, such as velvet, silk and natural leather, and vintage finishings, bringing together the glamour of a time gone by with our hopes for the future.



These earth-based neutrals create a calming space, a place to retreat from the world and recharge. The Restore palette and materials embrace nature and provide comfort through touch, with raw timber, unstructured linen and textured stone. Furniture is designed to embrace, and colours like Dulux Natural Flora, Dulux Lauder and Dulux Millwater provide a soothing respite from screens and devices to ground our senses.



Dreamy and sentimental, Wonder speaks to the desire for more fun in our lives. Mix unexpected combinations of colours and patterns to create whimsey, try pairing the soft shades of Dulux Tuakau with bright artwork, or Dulux Mātauri Bay with vivid checks and stripes. This palette brings the colours of dreams and memories into your home, giving you permission to express your creativity your way.
