Summer

As the weather warms up we are seeing nature's wonders with a new appreciation. Exploring local countryside, hiking, glamping and surrounding ourselves in mother nature. We realise the how important our connection to nature is. The colours of Wonder are both serene and invigorating at the same time, promoting positivity and awakening the senses. Colour schemes are light and fun, bold and experimental, reflect our need for nostalgia and importantly, surrealism. Our imaginations are rekindled as we bring more colour into our interior spaces and express our re-connection with the alluring outdoors.

With stunning views to the verdant courtyard, this dining room cried out for that uplifting colour to be brought inside.

Adding Matauri Bay to the panelled walls still allowed the vibrant greenery to shine without distracting from the garden aspect. Adding Titahi Bay to the trims provided that bit of whimsy that wonder is all about.

When you have an all white room sometimes the change to immersive colour can be daunting.

A great solution is to add partial wall colour - whether that be at dado or picture rail height, or just a two-thirds design detail like this living room make-over. The white trims don't stand out as much softening the transition and it helps bring white into the overall palette.

Summer Study

Dulux Motueka is featured in this home study/office nook, adding warmth to the open-plan area and working beautifully as the backdrop to lilac and yellow décor also seen throughout the connecting shared living space.

To add a more summery mood in this bedroom Dulux Edvard was used for the bottom two-thirds of the wall, with Dulux Southern Alps applied to the top third and ceiling. Paired with floral artwork and bedding in clashing patterns that features pillows in colours from the palette, these hues will can help personalise a child’s space and spark the imagination.
