Mix & Match - 4 Dulux colours and 4 La-Z-Boy chairs to make your lounge room pop!

If there is one thing that can change the look and feel of your home dramatically and easily, it is colour. It plays such an important part in setting the tone and mood for your home, and allows you to be expressive. Dulux are experts when it comes to colour and know the importance it can place in making your room pop. Therefore what better way to create a comfortable and stylish space, than mixing four vibrant colours with four comfortable La-Z-Boy occasional chairs.

Often when we hear the words ‘colour pop’ we think of loud and abrasive colours. A deep navy blue however, such as Ohaupo, can add depth and texture when painted throughout a living room, matched with a fresh bone white, such as Dulux Okarito on the trims and ceilings, the two opposing colours will complement each other and create drama. To complete the story why not add La-Z-Boy’s Norwood Armchair to the space in ‘Alara Pacific’ fabric. Teamed with art work in lighter tones, and a feature light and your room will be complete!

For those who shy away from dramatic contrasting tones, Dulux’s palette of mid tone neutrals can still create interest. Try introducing ‘Ohai’, a perfect example of where a natural neutral can bring colour to a space without a brash or demanding presence. Paired with the warmth of Dulux Cardrona, a soft chalky cream, can create harmony and balance. Muted greens can be introduced as a canvas for stronger colours, keep an eye out for combinations such as blush and navy, and incorporate these to the space in the form of furniture such as La-Z-Boy’s Harrow Armchair in ‘Churchill Ruby’.

Yes, it’s back! The thought of terracotta feature walls from the 1980’s has interior designers reaching for the can of white paint, but the new terracotta trends are shifting the status quo, and incorporating themselves into modern spaces. ‘Very Terracotta’ from Dulux adds a deep and rich element to modern white interiors, giving warmth.  Don't be afraid of mixing patterns and colours - start small and introduce La-Z-Boy’s Chicago Armchair in ‘Churchill Olive’ with a selection of homewares, then experiment with paint swatches and test pots.

Pinks are the new whites, and while most traditionally nurseries and pink go together, the interior design world has moved on. “This colour palette exudes warmth, but in a very sophisticated and contemporary way, allowing you to add colour with minimal fuss” says Davina Harper from Dulux. Think of blush pink as another neutral, and swap it out for cream or white, pair with La-Z-Boy’s Prague Armchair in ‘Nelson Steel” with soft grey tones, or deep navy. Trentham boasts a warm undertone, pairing perfectly with natural building materials such as stone and timber, making it equally at home in new builds as well as mid-century homes.
