We may be liv­ing in high-tech times, but our hot ro­mance with the past shows no sign of cool­ing. In fact, thanks to the gad­gets in our hands, many of us are more fa­mil­iar with the aes­thet­ics of yes­ter­day’s iconic looks, artists and de­sign­ers than ever be­fore.

Draw­ing on the glam­our of days gone by, this scene from the 2018 Du­lux Colour Trends col­lec­tion shows how rich colours in the Re­flect pal­ette – in­clud­ing 70s-es­que hues that chan­nel Pan­tone’s 2018 Colour of the Year, the blue-based pur­ple Ul­tra Vi­o­let – can be used to cre­ate a moody scheme that in­cludes grey-pur­ple, deep blue and ma­roon.

This colour se­ries has an old-world el­e­gance to it that makes it ideal for a room in which lux­ury reigns. Me­tal­lic ac­cents re­ally pop against these shades and help to re­flect the light. Off­set your dark choices with white win­dow frames and doors, or paint your mould­ings the same colour for a bold, con­tem­po­rary in­te­rior state­ment.
