Get to the Heart (Wood) of Dulux’s colour predictions for 2018

Last week, the paint powerhouse brand Dulux announced that Heart Wood – a beautiful warm pink – was chosen as their Colour of the Year for 2018.

Described by Dulux as a "warm neutral with a hint of heather", Heart Wood combines our love for millennial pink with the increasing demand for calming ‘greige’ hues in the home.

Announced as part of Dulux’s annual trend forecast, Heart Wood is the grounding influence in all of their colour palette predictions, due to its chameleon-like qualities, which sees the shade go from dusky pink to muted mauve to warm grey, depending on its pairing.

So, if you’d like to pay homage to nude shades in the bedroom or opt for a playful touch with pink in the living room, we have selected our favourite products from our clients below that truly encompass the no-fuss, simple spirit (and colour match) of this ever-changing smoky neutral.


So what do you think of Dulux's colour of the year, Heart Wood? Do you think it would add comforting charm to your home or is it millennial pink madness gone a step too far? Let us know on Twitter!
