The 2017 Dulux Colour Forecast, ‘Antidote: A Colour Cure’, has been unveiled, presenting a restorative remedy to the pressures of modern life through connection, tactility and balance. Four distinct trends – Sentience, Chroma, Entwine and Construct – unite as an invigorating colour cure for the coming year. The colour palette of each trend encapsulates texture, depth and vibrancy to replenish the senses and provide a fresh perspective.

Bree Leech and Heather Nette King worked closely with Dulux as Creative Directors to craft and execute immersive visual representations of each 2017 Forecast trend. Andrea Lucena-Orr, Dulux Colour Planning & Communications Manager, who brought the trends and colour palettes to life alongside Bree and Heather, said the 2017 Forecast will encourage Australian design professionals to consider and use colour with new purpose.

The Sentience trend re-discovers colours which are soothing and tonal, providing relief from the pressure of screens and monitors. Tactile moments are savoured and the inherent nature of materials is celebrated. The Sentience palette features warm, flesh tones and vegetal hues including Dulux Humble Fawn, Pinkham, Wasabi and CentreDust.

Reviving colour stimulation and excitement, Chroma breaks up repetition with vivid and chromatic tones. Post-modern and retrospective references are present but indistinct, as the trend remains highly contemporary and accessible. Illusions are created through line work, block colour, graphic elements and dominant forms.

Chroma’s palette is comprised of bold and saturated shades including Dulux BabyMelon, Deep Arctic, Red Capital and Hay Wain.

Entwine provides a colourful link to a global context, bridging diverse cultures and philosophies. Forging a connection between tradition and modernity, the trend focuses on the simplicity of weaving and its unique heritage, representative of acceptance and tolerance. The Entwine palette featuring rich ethnic colours including Dulux Carmen Miranda, Gold Pheasant, Forest Fruit Pink and Complex Blue.
