Heart Wood | Dulux Colour of the Year 2018 September 14 2017

This week, Dulux announced Heart Wood as their Colour of the Year for 2018. The dusky mauve grey is described by Dulux as a "warm neutral with a hint of heather".

The calming hue reminds us of hazy morning walks in the countryside (possibly due to that 'hint of heather') and works especially well in a living room or bedroom, to create a sophisticated but cosy retreat.

But the question is, what accessories do you pair with it? Personally we feel that Heart Wood works well against warming bronze, brass and natural shades - including materials such as wood and stone. It also sits well as a backdrop to a strong accent such as black, which works well as a contrast to the soft warming hue.

  

Here are some of our favourite pieces, available from our online store, which we think work perfect with Heart Wood...
