You've probably already heard: the Dulux colour of the year has been announced for 2022. And this year it's aptly named Bright Skies. This gorgeous pale blue shade aims to bring the outside in, something we've all been wishing for over the past 18 months of lockdown after lockdown.
Already looking to buy a tin to redecorate your living room, paint a feature wall in your bedroom or refresh some of your furniture? Smart idea. But, for those who'd rather not whip their paintbrush out – perhaps you're not very DIY or maybe you rent? – we are here to help you incorporate this lovely colour into your home. Through anything from your kitchen appliances to bedding and lighting, that is. All while being on a budget, and keeping things slightly simple.
In other exciting news, a Bright Skies DFS sofa will soon be released in their Java range, which is also available in a swivel chair, armchair, footstool and more. Topps Tiles will also be releasing some Bright Skies tiles in their Flute range. Plus, Stoves have partnered with Dulux to create a Bright Skies coloured range cooker. Exciting stuff!
