Design Files Founder Lucy Feagins has partnered with Dulux for the 2013 The Design Files Open House events in Sydney and Melbourne.

Creator Lucy Feagins will showcase how bold paint colour can transform a space at the 2013 The Design Files Open House. For the first time, this event will break away from an all-white neutral palette with a creative injection of colour throughout the pop-up houses in both Sydney and Melbourne.

In partnership with Dulux who is a major sponsor, Design Files Founder Lucy Feagins has chosen four Dulux paint colours to feature on the walls throughout each home location. Three hues from the collection are from the recently released Dulux 2014 Colour Trends.

Lucy explains white walls are out and the latest trends in paint are all about colour. She adds the unique palette will be displayed throughout the homes, showcasing how bold colour can be used in any home to enhance and energise interior spaces. 

Lucy’s tips for homeowners using the ‘Colours of Open House by Dulux’ are: ‘Anything goes with colour these days, so be brave, as there are now no rules. Consumers can be adventurous with these four colours in the home by painting walls, architraves, skirtings, furniture and more.’

Dulux Companion is the ideal backdrop for intimate spaces such as bedrooms and TV rooms while Dulux Mondrian Blue is perfect for functional daytime spaces, such as kitchens and living areas.

Dulux Waterworld is a vibrant accent colour suitable for use on doorframes, doors and cabinetry, offering just enough ‘pop’ without making too bold a statement. The energising and uplifting tone of 

Dulux Tango pairs beautifully with grey and presents a great alternative to pink in children’s spaces. 

Dulux Colour Expert Andrea Lucena-Orr comments that partnering with The Design Files Open House is a great way to demonstrate Dulux’s commitment to colour and the design community.

Visitors will be able to obtain samples of the ‘Colours of Open House by Dulux’ to try at home and the Dulux Dog will also make a special guest appearance over the weekend.
