Infuse Coastal Vibes in Your Décor with Dulux’s Colour of the Year

Last week we weighed in on Dulux’s 2020 Paint Colour of the Year: Chinese Porcelain. This week we are sharing how to incorporate this rich, beautiful shade of blue that evokes images of serene coastal living into your home via décor.

Make your space look larger while simultaneously incorporating a trendy colour on your walls with a beautiful mirror. For a more classic look, opt for a circle, oval or rectangle silhouette, or go with a more organic shape for an eclectic look.

Updating your serveware in a fresh colour is a great way to liven up your next hosting endeavour. What is great about adding new pieces to your collection is you can swap them out seasonally, so they feel new again every time you use them.

Pillows & Blankets

What sofa is complete without a couple pillows and a throw blanket? Incorporating trendy or seasonal colours in textiles is a great way to add flair to your bedroom or living room.

An area rug is a bit more of a commitment than serveware, but if you’re loving Chinese Porcelain, incorporating it into a rug is a great choice to show off some style.

Indoor Furniture

Perhaps the biggest commitment of all is indoor furniture. If you’re feeling bold, opt for a showstopping pop of colour for your next big furniture piece. Consider sofas, lounge chairs, and dining chairs in Chinese Porcelain.

Patio Furniture 

Patio furniture begs to be in a fresh colour, so why not choose a patio set in a coastal blue like Chinese Porcelain? Now all you need is a signature blue cocktail and you are ready to celebrate outdoor living.
