If you want to know the lat­est in wall colour trends, look to the big paint names for their colour fore­casts.

For 2019, Du­lux’s colour fore­cast, Fil­ter, has four colour pal­ettes — Legacy, Whole­self, Iden­tity and Re­pair — with earthy neu­trals and rich greens, mauve-grey, pow­dery pink and touches of gold, in­tense, sat­u­rated hues such as deep pur­ple, rus­set and aqua and no-holds-barred brights all fea­tur­ing in the 2019 fore­cast.

Wat­tyl’s 2019 colour trend fore­cast has Well Rounded, Green Scene, Sen­sory Darks and High Ex­pec­ta­tions pal­ettes, which in­cludes na­ture-in­spired hues and soft greens, rich tones of blue and green, fresh gourmet colours such as pink with ink blue, and rasp­berry ac­cents. Andrea Lu­cena-Orr, Du­lux colour and com­mu­ni­ca­tions man­ager, says pop­u­lar neu­tral shades con­tinue in grey and greige (grey-beige) colours, as well as mud­died beiges with sub­tle un­der­tones.

When it comes to bold colours, Ms Lu­cena-Orr says we will see a few more reds com­ing back into the mix.

“The Iden­tity palette sees Du­lux Red Clown as a vi­brant red, per­fect to use to grab your at­ten­tion, even for a door or fea­ture nook,” she says.

“Also, we are see­ing deeper colour as well, es­pe­cially in those muted and earthy tones.”
