The power of paint and colour


No matter what area of design you work in, the ability to work with colour and pattern is an essential tool of any designer. Often this skill can overflow into other areas of design from fashion to interiors to graphics and so on. Recently, Dulux paints were impressed by Australian fashion designers Ginger and Smart and their strong use of colour, and approached them to create an interior based on their new Arcadia collection. The result is a vibrant play of colour and even patterns brought together with a bit of an unexpected twist in the interior of this small bungalow. Really shows how, with a bit of colour know-how (and artistic skill!) - just paint can elevate a simple space into a dramatic showpiece.



Love the bright turquoise door - and painted accents on the potted plants outside, definitely draws you in right away.


A basic bookshelf becomes a veritable showstopper with a vibrant and playful mix of colours.



Patterns inspired by their fashion collection are put right onto the walls to create a stunning focal point in the rooms. Love the pairing of strong black and white stripes with soft peach, taupe and copper. 


This painted floral mural goes beyond the walls and extends up the ceiling, providing a dramatic contrast and definitely brightening up the off-black walls of this small bedroom space.

Paint and color seriously is super powerful! It's so true that they can make the biggest impact on your home decor! I love that last bedroom a lot! I love the gorgeous mix of strong black and white with soft peach, taupe, and copper. Talk about a gorgeous color combination.
