Colours for a Post Pandemic World


We are fast approaching the end of the year – which means – Dulux Colour Forecast for 2023 is out.

Based on extensive research, both locally & globally, the forecast reveals what tones and trends we can expect to see more of next year.

Dulux 3 palettes feature a mix of earth drawn neutrals, natural textures and a range of vibrant colours for a post pandemic world.

The main themes are Balance, Connect, Revive.


Balance – the need for Calm

“Uncertainty creates a need to restore the balance in our lives”.


The Inspiration:
Balance features serene marine blues and gentle greens in a calming palette for anyone seeking a simple, but sophisticated, aesthetic.

The Colours:
These colours are inspired by the coast, such as Dulux Kimberley Sea and Dulux Nephrite and are paired with the richness of Dulux Deep Garnet – a rich combination.

The Look: How to use these colours in your Fitout:
The look is luxe with textures like velvet and silk, furniture with exaggerated features and abstract art and décor pieces.



Connect: the need to connect with Nature

“Our connections are renewed through sustainability, authenticity and meaning”.


The Inspiration:
Connect brings the rich colours of the outdoors inside with earthy tones of moss, wasabi, sandstone, cinnamon, muddied yellow-green and burnt charcoal.

The Colours:
Classics like Dulux Whisper White are combined with warmer colours such as Dulux Bongo Skin and Dulux Basset Brown – these make for great and inviting feature walls.

The Look: How to use these colours in your Fitout:
This palette works best with simple furniture in natural materials – think timber, leather and rattan, as well as natural elements like stone flooring and bespoke, modern lighting made from recycled materials for a rustic and cosy look.



Revive: the need for Joy & Play

“Emerging from challenging times we revive our spirits through joy and creativity”.


The Inspiration:
After all the doom & gloom of recent COVID years, Dulux’s latest forecast brings playful, happy colours to brighten up our everyday lives.

The Colours:
Sunshine yellow, gold and breezy blues paired with Dulux Purple Celebration will lift our moods. These are softened with variations of rose such as Dulux Princess Pink and Dulux Pink Chi.

The Look: How to use these colours in your Fitout:
The Revive colour palette merges the past and present. So add retro influences with futuristic features – pixel patterns and digital art – and use these colours to create look-at-me accent walls and statement seating.
