The Construct trend is a fusion of luxurious and industrial elements as part of the 2017 Dulux Colour Forecast,

The 2017 Dulux Colour Forecast, ‘Antidote: A Colour Cure’, has been unveiled, presenting a restorative remedy to the pressures of modern life through connection, tactility and balance.

Bree Leech and Heather Nette King worked closely with Dulux as Creative Directors to craft and execute visual representations of the four distinct trends, Sentience, Chroma, Entwine and Construct, to unite as an invigorating colour cure for the coming year. The colour palette of each trend encapsulates texture, depth and vibrancy to replenish the senses and provide a fresh perspective.

The Forecast also previews several never-seen-before Dulux colours, ahead of a wider launch due to take place later in 2016.

  • The Sentience trend re-discovers colours which are soothing and tonal, providing relief from the pressure of screens and monitors.
  • Chroma breaks up repetition with vivid and chromatic tones using bold and saturated shades.
  • Entwine provides a colourful link to a global context, bridging diverse cultures and philosophies.
  • The Construct trend is a fusion of luxurious and industrial elements. A subtle, tonal palette creates depth and atmosphere, whilst accentuating architectural details.
