It’s important to think what the room will be used for, and what type of mood you want to create with colours. The Dulux “Language of Colour” can help you decide which kind of look you want to achieve. The four moods create a range of distinctive decorating styles.
Rich colours are Strong, Dynamic, Powerful and Bold
They include dark shades to mid-tone colours and are great on feature walls and as accent colours.
Fresh colours are Pure, Clean, Crisp & Breezy
They have no black pigment in them and include a wide range of shades from bright to palest pastels and are great for south facing rooms, because they reflect light well.
Warm colours are Comfortable, Cosy, Gentle and Welcoming
Warm colours create inviting atmosphere and are perfect for rooms where you want to relax. They include a wide range of shades from mid tone to soft pastels and are the most user-friendly colour moods, because they are so easy to live with.
Calm colours are Muted, Soft, Subtle and Tranquil
Calm colours that create understated meditative interiors are great for bedrooms and home offices. They include a wide range of shades from subtle deep to misty pastels. Calm colours have a high level of grey in them creating muted chalky colours that are ideal for north facing rooms.
