Updating the exterior of a house with the right colour scheme not only makes a strong first impression and reflects the homeowner’s personality, but also has the ability to increase street appeal and add value.
With this in mind, Dulux has created three exterior palettes, Bright Spot, Botanical Life and Natural Beauty, which can be mixed and matched to create an eye-catching and timeless colour scheme.
Bright Spot is made up of “pops” of brighter hues and a selection of failproof neutrals, which according to Bree Leech, creative consultant and stylist for Dulux, is ideal for popular mid-century architecture.
“Experiment with hues to achieve a modern take on architectural colour palettes,” she said. “Use bold hints of colour such as Dulux High Blue or Go Alpha in architectural details such as the front door, pot plants and even letterboxes.”
Botanical Life gives a warm and welcoming finish.
“Outdoor living has become an Australian way of life and botanical features play a greater role in our well-being as well as our décor,” Ms Leech said.
Natural Beauty is inspired by tactile elements with colours drawn from nature and focusing on neutrals, warm greys and charcoals.
