Dulux Colour Forecast for 2013 :: Merge

1 Jan

Happy New Year Everyone! To start off the year on a colourful note, I’d like to share with you the Dulux Colour Forecast for 2013. Dulux have broken up their trends into six different colour movements. As a special event this week I’ll be sharing each of the six movements with you over the next five days. Each trend has been inspired by different cultural and environmental factors and explores how colour is moving around us, shifting and changing along with our world and all that is in it.

First up is: MERGE

We are in motion, movement is all around us – a blur of colour, a subtle shift of light, a merge of shadows. Movement is social change, the rise of a nation, the protest of people, the progress of the digital age. The Dulux Colour Forecast – Colour Movement, explores how colour is moving around us, shifting and changing along with our world and all that is in it.

Merge evokes nostalgia by merging past, present and future styles for something entirely new but familiar. Craftsmanship, reconciling analogue with digital & simple processes with innovative solutions inform the Merge trend.

Tradition is reflected in the palette where materials associated with craftsmanship are represented in hues of stone, timber and leather while natural dying processes inspire red hues and orange based pinks.
