There are just a few months left of 2021 and, with the new year fast-approaching, we’re looking ahead to future interior trends.

A warm and earthy Brave Ground was named as this year’s colour by Dulux – but now the popular paint brand has revealed its top choice for 2022.

Bright Skies (a sky blue shade) has been named as the colour for next year – and it’s fresh and bright qualities make it a great choice for a number of different rooms in the house.

Marianne Shillingford, creative director at Dulux, tells Metro.co.uk: ‘Bright Skies perfectly depicts the sense of freedom we have all been dreaming of over the last year.

‘As we look ahead to 2022 and the desire for a fresh start, Bright Skies has the power to revitalise interiors with a bit of added joy which perfectly captures the essence of what we want and need in our homes right now.’

There’s no denying that blue isn’t always a first choice for painting main walls – instead neutrals and warmer shades tend to reign supreme in interior colour schemes.

But Marianne says there are plenty of ways to incorporate sky blue into our homes, and the colour can be used to break up spaces for different activities – also known as zoning.

Marianne adds: ‘Use Bright Skies in blocks and bands to define reading, working or relaxing spaces that reconnect with the outdoors and help us feel less confined by our four walls.

‘The colour can also be used to create arches and curves to add a gentle dynamism. Inspired by nature, Bright Skies makes the perfect backdrop for house plants and for natural materials and handmade art, ceramics and furniture.’

Which rooms will the colour look best in and why?

Blue is a particularly great option for a home office or work space, as it can help calm the mind and reduce stress.

But Marianne stresses that, due to its associations with nature, it works well in any room in the house.

She adds: ‘Bright Skies works perfectly in all the rooms, especially ones in which you want to feel uplifted and energised. It has a magical effect when used on the ceiling by visually melting it away and connecting with the sky itself.  Bring the colour down on to the walls by about 20-30cm too, to enhance the feeling of airy summer freshness.

‘In the living room, consider using Bright Skies in places you would love more natural light and colour-drench a bedroom for the ultimate full dose of colour joy.

‘In small or narrow spaces, like a bathroom or hallway, it will make them feel more spacious and blue aids concentration so it’s also one to consider for a home office.’
