Combining Dulux Colour of the Year with warm natural colors

We’ve created four easy-to-use palettes to help you transform your home with Dulux Colour of the Year 2021, Brave Ground. Here are some ready-made color combinations to inspire you to mix and match the natural tones of Trust colors.


 

A warm, natural neutral, Dulux Colour of the Year 2021 is the perfect tone to use in combination with other colors. Bolstering and balancing, it lets other shades shine, and harmonizes perfectly with our Trust palette of toning, earth colors from all over the world.

 

These complementary shades – soft browns, greys and neutrals – can help create a sense of unity in a room, and bring together the different elements of any interior scheme. Softening the hard lines of a contemporary space and adding a subtle modern touch to more traditional spaces, Trust colors can help create a warm and welcoming atmosphere in any room in your home.

 

Here are four easy and inspirational ideas for using Brave Ground with these earthy colors…

 

  1. Create a harmonized bedroom with a mix of soft naturals
