Now in its 33rd year, the Dulux Colour Awards champions exceptional use of colour in commercial and residential spaces across Australia and New Zealand. Each year has seen a steady growth, with this year gaining a record-breaking 435 entries from designers. Out of these entries, 114 finalists were chosen for their creative and innovative use of colour.

"Nature-based warm hues, such as beiges, terracotta and caramels came to the fore," says Dulux Colour Planning and Communications Manager, Andrea Lucena-Orr.
She continues to explain that tonal blues - from azure to deep navy - were used frequently throughout residential submissions, as well as greens ranging from soft sage to emerald, which added a sense of "sophistication, character and quiet luxury."
The winner of the Dulux Colour Awards 2019 will be announced in early May and chosen by a panel of industry leaders, including Rosa Coy, Director of Coy Yiontis Architects; Mardi Doherty, Director of Doherty Design Studio; Simon Farrell-Green, Editor of HOME New Zealand magazine and Carole Whiting, Director of Carole Whiting Interiors + Design.
