Create a harmonious, joyful space with Dulux Colour of the Year

Inspired by the natural buzz and biodiversity of meadows, prairies and wildflower fields, Buzz colours can bring a sense of vitality and joy to any room in your home.

Our Buzz palette takes inspiration from nature’s extraordinary ecosystems – think beautiful meadows that are home to grasses, wildflowers, butterflies and bees. Used in our homes, the vibrant colours in this palette create a rich, energetic space that feels playful and sparks joy. 

Buzz shades are perfect for making bold statements and injecting personality into your home. Get creative with geometric shapes, create a dramatic contrast with split walls or highlight focal points in a room with clever colour-blocking. 

Try these four joyful decorating ideas using Dulux Colour of the Year, Wild WonderTM, and the Buzz palette. 

Go graphic in the living room

 

Be bold in your living room by combining colours and playing with paint effects; the Buzz palette is all about the mix and match. Here, a circle painted in Wild WonderTM adds a joyful, unexpected element against a soft pink wall, adding to the warm and glowing feel.

Create contrast in the bedroom

 

Vibrant but harmonious, Buzz colours are made to work together, so get creative with a split wall feature. Here, a section picked out in soft pink defines the bed area, while the rest of the room is painted in Colour of the Year 2023, Wild WonderTM. It’s a combination that makes for a fun, warm and welcoming space.

Add interest with colour-blocking

 

It’s easy to make a statement with a simple colour-block technique, and you can’t go wrong combining any of the tones from the Buzz palette with Wild WonderTM. In this workspace, the pastel pink staircase makes a subtle impact against walls and ceiling painted in the Colour of the Year. Co-ordinating furnishings and accessories in the same shade of pink add the perfect finishing touch.
