Colour of the Year 2013_2

Louise Smith

Senior Global Colour Designer

Blue was a key fashion colour for Spring/Summer and is set to be a wardrobe and interior favourite into 2013. Blue has the reputation of being cold, but if you select the correct colour for your room it can create some of the most inspiring interior colour schemes.

Indigo has a purplish edge giving it a soothing, honest and relaxing feel which is easier to live with than more green based hues making it feel warmer in our cool northern light. As a paint colour Indigo adds a surprising, elegant strength and shows you are quietly confident with colour.

Colour & Design Manager

A rising star in interiors, Indigo is a striking statement colour associated with wisdom and honesty which really enhances your environment. Like the dreamy ocean landscapes hidden from everyone but deep sea divers, this colour gives us a sense of tranquility and stability which is very restful for a bedroom setting.

For a beautifully rich shade, try Indigo Night, a new and truly versatile hue introduced to Dulux Paint Mixing for A/W 2012.

Indigo Night is the perfect colour of the year for 2013. Gutsy, strong and velvety, this beautiful shade of blue lends itself to every aspect of living both inside and out . It looks as stunning on walls as it does in furniture and accessories. Team with white, warm greys, contrasting rich burnt orange and warm tones of natural wood.
