It's time to slow life right down
As we embrace a more authentic existence, our sense of global consciousness kicks into gear. Showy status symbols lose their shine. Wealth and happiness is redefined by life’s simple beauty.
The Nordic tradition of Hygge reminds us to savour the time we have. To be present in the moment. To let nature’s elements nourish our spirit, and time spent with family and friends feed the soul.
Our search for genuine simplicity inspires a newfound appreciation for natural and recycled materials. As we embrace the old as new, we repair our rifts with nature and move towards a more conscious way of living.
A minimalist approach to shapes, finishes and forms is warmed by cosy Hygge vibes. Imperfections are a key attribute of the Essential trend, playing out through textured finishes and a handcrafted aesthetic.
Simple forms, subtle textures. Essential’s palette draws together cool greys and soft warm shades. Wall finishes such as Dulux Suede Effect allow you to create a bespoke finish that is either heavily textured, or soft and subtle – depending on the application.
Essential’s calm, nurturing palette draws on the soft warmth of leathers, a pop of bold blue, and the beautiful imperfections of aging materials in rusted tones.
