Banish the winter blues with rich, decadent tones and luxe detailing.

“Deep burgundy, soft violet and accents of coral and mustard feel opulent and exciting, with hints of art deco and 70s disco adding a touch of nostalgia.” Andrea Lucena-Orr, Dulux Colour & Communications Manager

Light and Shade

Whether you prefer your colour schemes dark and dramatic or plush and pastel, the Indulge palette can be adapted to suit your spaces. For the bold, look for velvety shades of burgundy and eggplant. For softer schemes, opt for a soft grey-violet, calico or lilac.

A study in Subtlety

High ceilings and blonde timber joinery inspired Bree Leech to take a lighter approach to this study nook. A soft shade of Subtle Violet restores warmth without overpowering the space, and stands out from the crisp, Vivid White™ skirtings. To carry the tonal theme through, Bree styled the space with pink and violet ornaments - giving the chair a lick of Lilac Light paint for good measure.

Giving into Grandeur

Saturated hues and sumptuous textures were a natural choice for Dulux Colour Forecaster and Interior Designer Bree Leech. But using a bold colour contrast between the walls, ornate cornicing, and that beautiful fireplace, Bree was able to further accentuate the existing features in this grand home office.
