Dulux Canadian Pine is a vibrant emerald green selected from the 2015 Dulux Colour Forecast. This is the perfect on-trend accent colour for interiors this summer. A dreamy, deep green, Canadian Pine offers a refreshing change and pairs perfectly with blonde timbers and warm metallics such as brass and copper.

Dulux Sea Angel is a subtle, relaxing grey/blue and is a perfect on-trend colour for interiors this summer, selected from the 2015 Dulux Colour Forecast “Connections”. Sea Angel is a restful, subdued colour and can create an illusion of making a room feel more spacious. This hue presents a great alternative to mauve or grey/greens in children‘s rooms and it schemes beautifully with soft grey and green tones. Dulux Sea Angel works perfectly when using it with highlights in white, teal or natural tones such as beige and stone.

Dulux Mandrake is a perfect mid-toned greyish/mauve suitable for any interior space. Believed to have a spiritual quality, Mandrake is a perfect backdrop for an intimate space often inhabited in the evenings, such as bedrooms and formal rooms. This colour can also create an ideal background for both bold artwork and pastel or gelato decorative items. It’s surprisingly versatile and will scheme well with many natural colours as well as greys and deeper charcoals.
