Next year’s chosen shade is an evolution from this year’s shade, Copper Blush, and ties into the ongoing trend of using metallic tones in the home. Warm and subtle, Cherished Gold pairs equally well with fresh pastels and rich jewel tones alike. Whether you live in a new-build or a period terrace, the shade’s earthy quality means it’s a great choice for any type of space. To make it even easier to use, we’ve teamed Cherished Gold with a selection of coordinating hues to bring extra sparkle to your home.
Rebecca Williamson, Senior Colour Design & Content Manager at Dulux, comments: 'Gold and tones of gold are being used everywhere in the design world. It is a recurring colour and material at design fairs and in graphic design as well as in architecture, fashion, beauty and interior decorating. For 2016 Cherished Gold is a beautiful next step, a natural evolution and transition from Copper Blush, last years' Colour of the Year. As metallics continue to add that feel good factor into our homes, this earthy gold inspired hue will offer that little touch of glamour in an authentic and personal way.'
