Copper Blush: Dulux Colour of the Year 2015

Replacing the cool blues and greens of recent years, the colour palette for 2015 brings a warmer spectrum of pinks, reds and oranges, with ‘Copper Blush’ named by Dulux as Colour of the Year 2015. This warm hue combines perfectly with neutrals and crisp whites and will be beautifully complemented by natural wood and metallic finishes such as gold and of course copper.

Louise Tod, the senior global colour designer at Dulux says: “The theme for the 12th edition of Colour Futures is about finding new, subtle ways to add colour to our lives, whether that is through exploring under-utilised spaces, in our relationships with each other or in the environment around us.”



Great on its own, the colour also combines perfectly with pinks, neutrals, whites and other orange hues, as well as metallic colours such as gold. It also beautifully complements wood tones and can be brought to life by flesh pinks and earthy tones of clay.
