Combining Dulux Colour of the Year with warm natural colours

We’ve created four easy-to-use palettes to help you transform your home with Dulux Colour of the Year 2021, Brave Ground™. Here are some ready-made colour combinations to inspire you to mix and match the natural tones of Trust colours.

A warm, natural neutral, Dulux Colour of the Year 2021 is the perfect tone to use in combination with other colours. Nurturing and balancing, it lets other shades shine, and harmonizes perfectly with our Trust palette of universal earthy colours from all over the world.

These complementary shades – soft browns, greys and neutrals – can help create a sense of unity in a room, and bring together the different elements of any interior scheme. Softening the hard lines of a contemporary space and adding a subtle modern touch to more traditional spaces, Trust colours can help create a warm and welcoming atmosphere in any room in your home.

Here are four easy and inspirational ideas for using Brave GroundTM with these earthy colours…

  1. Create a harmonized bedroom with a mix of soft naturals

Trust colours work together naturally, so it’s easy to combine different tones to create a space that feels connected. Here, walls painted in soft brown have been topped with Dulux Colour of the Year 2021, Brave GroundTM to make a stylish and cosy bedroom. An arch, also painted in Brave GroundTM, adds a creative touch, and cleverly defines a zone for the dressing table.
