Is there an experimental chef in your family? Use an exciting wall colour palette to inspire them. We recommend applying moss green as a contrast to the pink hue of Heart Wood, Dulux Colour of the Year 2018. Don’t forget to include the unexpected – a touch of colour to unexpected areas, such as the underside of a table or countertop.

Make the latest colour trends your own by pairing pastels with Heart Wood. A stylish two-tone wall in sky blue and cream can be echoed on other surfaces, such as the trim and sides of this kitchen island, while a deep blue accent keeps everything grounded. The result is a soothing, airy kitchen, perfect for enjoying with even the busiest family.
