Dulux has announced its Colour of the Year and for 2022, Bright Skies is taking over. This shade of light dusky blue is just the ticket if you are looking to give your workplace a makeover, as it adds colour without being overpowering.

Bright Skies is described by the paint manufacturer as ‘airy and fresh’, and has been created to breathe new life into any space. We’re big fans of the shade here at MPL Interiors, so here are 5 ways we see Bright Skies being incorporated into an office refurbishment scheme:-

  1. Wall-to-wall colour: Bright Skies is neutral and light enough to be applied to an entire room. It would work especially well in break out areas and communal zones where this ‘optimistic blue’ will aid in clear thinking and clarity.
  2.  
  3. As an alternative to grey: grey has been very popular for so long but get the shade wrong and it can feel oppressive or dull. Bright Skies is a viable alternative to grey – it is a cool blue with slightly grey undertones but it’s not cold.
  4.  
  5. Paired with metallics: very few colours work with every metallic finish but Bright Skies is one of them. The shade would look fresh against silver, gold, copper and brass – brilliant versatility when choosing light fittings, hardware and door furniture.

  7. In a colour combination: Bright Skies complements so many other colours, so it also works well as an accent shade. It naturally pairs with sage and forest green, warm browns (including latte and caramel), pastel pink and navy blue.

  9. Combined with natural wood: warmth is easily added to Bright Skies by using wood finishes. Whether this is a timber slatted wall feature, light oak office desks or a Scandi-style limed beech floor, blonde woods and pale blue walls create a contemporary look.
