Dulux has recently announced that their colour of the year for 2018 is one called Heart Wood.

That’s all very well, I hear you say, but what colour is that?

Heart Wood can best be described as a delightful heather-grey.  Apparently it is intended to evoke the concept of a home as a sanctuary away from the pressures and stresses of life.

Dulux thinking goes beyond the paint itself and considers how the shade will sit with the objects, materials and textures of a room.  Heart Wood is thought to go particularly well with leather, velvet and warm toned woods such as cherry and walnut.  It is described as a warm neutral colour with plenty of versatility.
