Life in a New Light

exhibition design and material curation for dulux

Colour Futures is the annual colour trend forecast created by paint manufacturer Dulux. It represents the culmination of in-depth research and debate carried out by leading industry professionals concerned with lifestyle and design trends from around the world. Each year, as part of the global launch a special event takes place in London to help explain the research and illuminate the colour trend formulations.


Colour Futures 17 explored themes of balance, with a renewed appreciation of our everyday experiences and the simpler things in life coming to the fore.

The launch event took place at London’s prestigious 1 Fitzroy Square and was spread across a number of days with architects, interior designers and the associated press invited to discover the story behind the forecast, the colours selected and a special material exhibition. The aim of the latter was to bring the trends to life by applying their rhetoric to a wide selection of materials that might actually be used in an interior design scheme, thus adding further depth to the trends.


“The Life in a New Light trends have been bought to life with tangible materials that help designers relate them to our built environments”
