With spring in the air, there is no better time to feel inspired, declutter and renew a space in your home with a fresh lick of paint. To get you started, DECO Art Director Marushka Stipinovic selects the perfect palette to pick from all the spring colour trends.

In our current #FashionIssue, DECO selected our top spring colour combinations from Dulux paints in the Showcase Your Style feature. You can see the full story in print to see how DECO played with bold, opulent, minimalist and inviting colour palettes.

But how best to go about selecting the key colours for spring that will work in your home?

As Editor of ELLE Decoration, Bielle Bellingham, says: ‘Be brave with your colour choices; paint is a wonderfully easy way to inject new life into your spaces. There is also no right or wrong. If you don’t love your choice, easy – just paint again!’  

Be like a flower and turn your face to the sun. – Kahlil Gibran

This month, we’re advising all DECO readers to embrace the turning season and to take your cue from Spring. Pairing jungle greens and sunflower yellows with muted blush hues taken from natural stone. There is a gentle freshness to this season’s palette that can be styled to suit every taste.
