  • How to make Denim Drift, Dulux's Colour of the Year, work in your home

    Dulux has announced its Colour of the Year 2017, a beautiful calming shade called ‘Denim Drift’. Here’s how to work it in your home…

    1. Keep it clean

    For 2017, things are looking fresh and pared-back. The blue-grey tones of Denim Drift work gloriously when painted onto a simple, flat wall and left to shine – and no you’re not imagining it, it looks different at certain times of day depending on how lights falls on it.

    2. Fade out

    Gently introduce the colour into your scheme with a dip-dyed, fading effect. Let the darker tones float nearer the bottom of the wall and disappear as it goes up, to create the illusion of more space in the room. Effortlessly beautiful.

    3. Mix in pattern

    If you want something a bit more attention-grabbing, combine Denim Drift with patterns in similar tones. The polka dot wallpaper and modern blue and white Delft tableware at this dining table bring out the blue of the wall to create a cohesive and complimentary place to dine.

    4. Go vintage

    Denim Drift is a timeless shade so it’ll work with furniture from any era. We love the eclectic mix of styles and ages in this study, the vintage desk and more modern seating pulled together by a colour that’s incredibly versatile. It’s looking like it’s going to be a stylish year.
