Hailed as the colour to steal homeowners’ hearts next year, alongside a supporting colour palette that includes indigo blues and rich dark shades, Dulux’s dusky mauve Heart Wood Colour of the Year will transform homes into a calming, cosy ‘sanctuary’.

Floral designs in Heart Wood are a match made in heaven, especially as ‘inspiration from nature is at the heart of this colour palette’, according to Dulux. Scatter patterned cushions in coordinating shades to take the colour palette throughout the room.
