Heavily influenced by the nostalgia of the postmodern era, with a particular emphasis on the '70s, the Muse palette is a celebration of the free-spirited styles of the past.
Ceiling, Trims & Doors
Fantan is a warm, yellow-brown with an earthy, grounding feel that adds warmth to a space and looks stunning as a feature colour.
The palette's colourful array of hues creates a distinctly modern interior fused with nostalgic design references reminiscent of the '60s to the '80s, in addition to the textures and glamour from the '70s. Whilst many of us lived through these design periods, the allure of the '70s and '80s is a whole new influence being embraced by younger generations.
Walls & Ceiling
Tuscan Sunset is a warm amber that can add both warmth and energy to any space. Use this colour as an accent both inside and out or use it as an all-over wall colour to create a dramatic and cosy space. Try pairing it with warm whites such as Natural White™ or a bold blue like Passionate Blue.
This trend strikes the perfect balance between the expressive colours featured in postmodern interiors and the emerging modern hues in contemporary design, resulting in interior spaces that are timeless and pay homage to design icons from the past.
Ceiling & Trim
A cool fresh white, Lexicon® Quarter is the perfect choice for the walls and trim of modern, open-plan spaces. Create a vibrant mood that allows you to showcase eclectic artworks and furnishings. Lexicon® Quarter is also a great colour to highlight key exterior features or if you're looking for a bright white on the outside of your home. It pairs well with soft greys and neutrals, cool greys, and warm whites and grieges such as Highgate, Winter Terrace, Tranquil Retreat and White Exchange Half.
Dulux Colour and Communications Manager Andrea Lucena-Orr shares her expert colour and design tips.
Midtones work best when used on all four walls, particularly in bedrooms and living spaces. For smaller spaces, you can use less volume on either one or two walls. Don’t forget ceilings and areas such as picture rails or dado rails, which also work well in midtone colour schemes.
Before choosing colour schemes and soft furnishings, it's crucial to consider elements you can’t change easily such as carpet, tiles, laminate or stone, and/or curtains and blinds that you will need to ensure work with the new colours chosen.
For colour accuracy, simply order swatches, A4 stickers or sample pots in your chosen colours to view them in your home’s natural light conditions. We also have an online colour advice team and a Colour Design Service if you prefer a design professional to help curate your space.
