1. Create a do-it-all living room
Against a backdrop of airy Bright Skies™, Workshop colours are perfect for picking out architectural features or functional areas. Singled out in sunny yellow, this wall with recessed shelves on either side becomes the focal point of a comfortable living room, providing a modern and adaptable storage area for books, ceramics, work files and pieces of art.
2. Use colour for a sense of space in a bedroom
Be clever with colour in a compact bedroom to make the space feel bigger. Walls painted in light and airy Bright Skies™ make the room feel expansive, while a paint-effect headboard in bright Workshop colours creates a fabulous feature, and takes up no space. With the same tones picked out in the bedlinen and cushions, the result is refreshing, relaxing and cohesive.
3. Paint yourself a splashback
When the kitchen is also the office and the playroom, you may not want to give it a purely practical look. Bring in some colour to make it feel like somewhere the whole family can spend time together – whether cooking, relaxing or playing. Using bands of Workshop colours behind the cabinets is a clever way of defining the utility area without using glass or tiles. Use a grease-resistant paint, such as Dulux EasyCare, which resists everyday cooking stains and is washable without the colour fading.
4. Eat, work and play in a dining area
Nothing makes a better backdrop for a multipurpose space than the fresh, airy tones of Bright Skies™, Dulux Colour of the Year 2022. As well as making the most of the daylight, it can help bring calm and clarity to a busy family area, whatever it’s being used for. And don’t forget, because those Workshop colours work so well against it, you can add accessories in similar zingy tones.
