Pro­duced by Ak­zoNo­bel, Du­lux of­fers a wide range of dec­o­ra­tive paints that can give walls a new look in a jiffy. While colours and tex­tures have gained ground over the years, there are two def­i­nite trends ac­cord­ing to Du­lux, which have be­come ex­tremely pop­u­lar in re­cent times. High­light­ing a wall in the room, com­monly called the ac­cent wall and al­ter­nat­ing be­tween hues are the two most im­por­tant styles people look out for. The ac­cent wall cre­ates the per­fect mi­lieu of colour and vi­brancy in the room and most con­sumers go for a bright or dark colour for the prom­i­nent wall which has am­ple light­ing and paint the rest of the walls in lighter vari­a­tions of the same colour or a com­ple­ment­ing colour. The prac­tice of al­ter­nat­ing be­tween hues on the other hand, refers to us­ing darker and lighter tones of the same colour through­out your home. The best bet is to an­a­lyse your space be­fore de­cid­ing what paint to opt for. Some of the best-sell­ing prod­ucts from Du­lux in­clude Du­lux Vel­vet Touch, which is a pre­mium lux­ury in­te­rior paint and Weather­shield Sun Re­flect for ex­te­ri­ors which helps in keep­ing the tem­per­a­ture in check.

Tip: Go for teal this year as the colour sym­bol­ises bal­ance and has a sub­dued rich­ness which is used to de­scribe trop­i­cal seas of shim­mer­ing bluish green.
