Chase the blues away by decorating your space with furnishings inspired by Dulux’s Colour of the Year 2022, a pale blue hue named Bright Skies
Imbuing a sense of carefree relaxation, Dulux’s Colour of the Year for 2022 is a light blue hue named Bright Skies. Described by Dulux as a “light, airy and optimistic blue” that “opens up and breathes new life into any space”, the shade was selected according to the increased importance that colour plays in our homes.
As per the other 19 Dulux Color of the Year shades, Bright Skies was chosen by an international panel of design experts who analysed global trends and key insights as part of the colour selection process. The versatile colour plays well in a variety of spaces; it can serve as a soothing shade for the bedroom or an uplifting hue for the home office. If you’re looking to ease the shade into your space, we’ve rounded up a selection of stylish furnishings and decor pieces in the cool blue hue; see our list below.
