Dulux and DECO present this season’s most exciting colours

Take your cue from this African-inspired collection of trending colour combinations. In collaboration with Dulux, DECO presents the season’s most exciting colours and shows you how to bring them into your home.

This drop-dead-gorgeous country of ours is quite literally pulsating with unbridled creativity, potential, talent and enthusiasm.

The colours, patterns, textures, narratives and materials characteristic of a characteristically African aesthetic are being celebrated, reinterpreted and re-imagined to extraordinary effect this season, because they feel authentic – they have gravitas, history and a very long, fascinating story.

A characteristically African aesthetic is being celebrated with the colours, patterns and textures typical of our great continent

With deep-rooted traditions and craft techniques at its foundation, a modern twist takes this African palette to the next level. These brilliant shades inspired by African food, jewellery and furniture instill a sense of wonder, of confidence and encourage bold expression.

 “Fearless, open-minded and with a twist of humor and wit – the dramatic and intense colours of current African design captures and celebrates the authenticity of our people, our continent and heritage with a deep rooted sense of pride and proactive optimism.”

~ Sonica Bucksteg, Dulux Colour Expert

The links between fashion and décor trends grow ever more apparent; colours move from the catwalk to the couch. Individually these colours are vibrant and powerful; when presented in the perfect combination, they become even more extraordinary.

“Colours speak all languages.”
