You may remember my earlier post that featured a short video from AkzoNobel’s ColourFutures 2015 all about the colour trends we can expect to see in interiors in 2015. Well, you may or may not know that Dulux is actually the UK consumer paint brand from AkzoNobel and they recently announced their Colour of the Year for 2015. Drum roll please….’Copper Blush’! Described as a versatile, warm copper colour with an orange tone, doesn’t that just sound so divine and totally heart warming? Well, according to Dulux, the colour palette for 2015 will replace the cool blues and greens of recent years and will bring a warmer spectrum of pinks, reds and oranges, reflecting a more positive global outlook. Just what we need right? A good healthy dose of positivity! But forget waiting until 2015. I’m all over copper already and it is one of my biggest trend obsessions to date. Someone tell my husband to hide the bank card!
Let’s find out a little bit more from Dulux about this heavenly hue and how to incorporate it into our own homes:
Witnessed across the globe, metallic colour tones are playing an increasingly important role within modern design. Copper Blush, the key colour for 2015, reflects this movement as a beautifully heart-warming shade with real depth which creates an easy-to-live-with atmosphere but with a touch of elegance.
This versatile orange has an added twist of cool pink to give it that delicious coppery look which goes with an array of other enticing shades from crisp whites, harmonious orange and reds, to slight pops of yellow with stunning effects.
To really enhance the natural beauty of this unique shade, keep things ultra simple with lots of pure white, clay toned neutrals, and fleshy pinks, both on your walls and through your furnishings, then add surprising shots of coral or fizzy yellow in smaller elements like dip painted stools or table legs. Complete with natural wood, copper and gold accessories to reflect the real splendour of Copper Blush.

If you’re not quite ready to fully commit to Copper Blush by covering your walls in it, then why not opt for the less permanent option of investing in a few choice copper accessories for your home. You really can’t go wrong there and the added warmth that they will bring to your interiors will be worth it this winter.
