“When travelling, I always try to ‘collect memories’ by buying local pieces of colourful art, shawls, textiles – anything that I can keep as a reminder of a place, person or experience. It adds a great shot of both colour and personality to my home and office.” Stephanie Kraneveld, Global Colour Knowledge Manager, Dulux

“We’ve got a huge bulletin board at home with all kinds of colourful paintings, postcards and drawings – most of them created by my kids. Regularly changing what’s on there means the board is like a huge colourful living artwork.” Stephanie Kraneveld,

“I love accessorising my home with bright accents against softer grey hues. My favourite way to create impact is through painting furniture in glossy tones and styling with coloured glass. Combining opaque and transparent glass in a single colour creates a real statement.” Louise Smith, Senior Global Colour Designer, Dulux

“On my walls I like to create still lifes by grouping together illustrations, cards, funny texts, colours swatches, etc. I change them regularly so that I always have something new and lovely to look at. I stick them on unexpected places in different rooms with beautiful coloured masking tape. They always make me smile!” Marieke van der Bruggen, Global Colour Designer, Dulux

“I love to add a splash of colour to my clothing. My thing is coloured tights; I can’t resist them. Bright pink, orange, purple, teal, honey mustard – any colour looks brilliant with simple black shoes. It makes people smile – and they don't forget me!” Marianne Shillingford, UK Creative Director
