Heavily influenced by the nostalgia of the postmodern era, with a particular emphasis on the '70s, the Muse palette is a celebration of the free-spirited styles of the past.
Ceiling, Trims & Doors
Fantan is a warm, yellow-brown with an earthy, grounding feel that adds warmth to a space and looks stunning as a feature colour.
The palette's colourful array of hues creates a distinctly modern interior fused with nostalgic design references reminiscent of the '60s to the '80s, in addition to the textures and glamour from the '70s. Whilst many of us lived through these design periods, the allure of the '70s and '80s is a whole new influence being embraced by younger generations.
This trend strikes the perfect balance between the expressive colours featured in postmodern interiors and the emerging modern hues in contemporary design, resulting in interior spaces that are timeless and pay homage to design icons from the past.
Walls & Ceiling
Macraes Flat is a warm amber that can add both warmth and energy to any space. Use this colour as an accent both inside and out or use it as an all-over wall colour to create a dramatic and cosy space. Try pairing it with warm whites such as Cardrona or a bold blue like Kellands Pond.
Ceiling & Trim
Ōkārito is a crisp, fresh white that goes with almost anything. It is perfect as a main wall colour for exteriors as well as windows and trims. Ōkārito is a versatile white that suits almost any style of home. It is also the most popular white in the Dulux Colours of New Zealand range.
Dulux Colour and Design Specialist Davina Harper shares her expert colour and design tips.
Midtones work best when used on all four walls, particularly in bedrooms and living spaces. For smaller spaces, you can use less volume on either one or two walls. Don’t forget ceilings and areas such as picture rails or dado rails, which also work well in midtone colour schemes.
Before choosing colour schemes and soft furnishings, it's crucial to consider elements you can’t change easily such as carpet, tiles, laminate or stone, and/or curtains and blinds that you will need to ensure work with the new colours chosen.
