    2017 Dulux Colour Awards finalists revealed

    Darker tones, blue-green combinations and moody palettes were trending in the submissions made for the 2017 Dulux Colour Awards. The number of entries hit a new record this year with 286 designs reviewed for the 2017 Dulux Colour Awards and 89 finalists from across Australia and New Zealand shortlisted for the top honours on the basis of their inventive colour application.

    The 31st edition of the iconic program will once again recognise Australian and New Zealand’s diversely creative, imaginative and outstanding use of colour across commercial and residential spaces.

    The 89 finalists were selected across nine categories: Commercial Interior – Workplace & Retail (15 finalists); Commercial Interior – Public Spaces & Hospitality (16 finalists); Commercial Exterior (17 finalists); Single Residential Interior (14 finalists); Single Residential Exterior (5 finalists); Multi Residential Interior (5 finalists); Multi Residential Exterior (5 finalists); International (8 finalists); Student (4 finalists).

    Dulux Colour Planning and Communication Manager, Andrea Lucena-Orr, said the 2017 submissions were exciting, inventive and unexpected, in line with the theme of ‘Bold, Forward, Tilted’.

    A trend of darker tones was noticed in commercial spaces with blacks, charcoals and purples prominent throughout exteriors and interiors. Cooler combinations of blues and greens were also popular, while architects and designers continued to explore geometric shapes and industrial aesthetics. In the residential segment, the entries embraced moodier palettes and deeper colour tones, which were cleverly offset with elegant light greys, whites and soft pinks.

    This year’s student entries also featured imaginative concepts and clever colour combinations, according to Andrea.

    The 2017 Dulux Colour Awards finalists will now be judged by a panel of design leaders, including Ryan Russell – Director at Russell & George; Maurice Terzini – Restaurateur and Fashion Designer; Fiona Lynch – Director at Fiona Lynch Interior Design; Timothy Hill - Director at Partner’s Hill; and Shelley Ferguson – Editor in Chief of Your Home and Garden (NZ).

    Winners will be selected across the nine categories with the best of the category winners awarded the Grand Prix prize. Winners of the 2017 Dulux Colour Awards will be announced at a gala event in Melbourne on Wednesday 10 May, 2017.
