Not long ago Dulux announced its Colour of the Year 2018. If you love being on trend with your Chigwell, Loughton and Woodford interiors you will want to get your hands on this warm neutral shade, with a hint of heather that will bring harmony to your home.
Heart Wood is Dulux’s colour of the Year 2018. “Sitting between a smoky taupe and dusky mauve, Heart Wood is described as a 'warm neutral, with a hint of heather,' and comes at a time when homeowners yearn to transform their homes into true sanctuaries from the world. “ Colours like this are all about bringing a warm and comforting vibe to your Chigwell interiors.
Dulux explain: 'The colour for 2018 is inspired by the beautifully warm wooden materials we see being used in all kinds of interior decorating and architecture. A variety of woods are growing in popularity, but we see a tendency towards warmer, light and dark shades of red, alongside violet and pinkish woods. The warmth of wood reflects the comfort that we need in these uncertain times – this material is an essential element for creating the welcoming environments we desire.'
Dulux developed their colour of the year alongside a matching colour palette and key colour predictions for 2018.  As part of this brand’s industry-acclaimed trend forecast, ColourFutures, they've highlighted a trend that reflects the importance of cosy wooden tones.’  This kind of soft, neutral colour is the perfect paint shade to use across your home. It will bring the nourishing warmth of wood and tactile comfort of leather to create a sense of harmony and balance to your living space.
