The autumn mood has well and truly taken hold, and we're craving soft, muted tones and warm, snuggly blankets. For the former, check out the a/w collection from Dulux. Blue topped the colour trend charts for the new season; sure, it can make a bold statement, but the right shade can also be wonderfully calming, and can help bring a bit of tranquility to an otherwise hectic day, so try it in living rooms and bedrooms.
Fun fact: Blue is the most popular colour worldwide, and is the favourite shade of more than half the world's population!
