The Dulux 2022 Colour Forecast | The Best Colour for Your Roof

For the past 22 years, the colour team at Dulux have released an annual trend report which forecasts the colours that will inspire our creative visions for our homes. 

Researching colour influences and trends from overseas (particularly in Europe), the team also takes inspiration from fashion, media and nature. And this year, the pandemic was a big consideration in their forecast.

In fact, the Dulux Annual Colour Forecast has never been so eagerly anticipated.

When explaining the concept behind their colour palette forecast, the Dulux colour team said – 


I think every year has a significance with colour and design forecasts, however living through a pandemic has certainly made us feel much more connected to our homes. The Dulux 2022 Colour Forecast is even more significant when you want to create changes and add a different feel to your home especially after spending more time indoors than ever before. The exciting addition to the 2022 Colour Forecast was the Wonder Palette and is quite different from what we saw in 2021 – the hope and positivity on the horizon has been created in this uplifting palette. — DULUX COLOUR FORECAST 2022


The Dulux 2022 range comes in three palettes –  Flourish, Restore and Wonder.


Choosing the right colour for your roof

In this article we’re going to have a look at how B Anderson Roofing clients have been inspired by Dulux colour palettes and used the Flourish, Restore and Wonder palettes for 2022 on their entire project.

Inspiration for your home exterior

One of the most popular exterior designs of 2022 will continue to be the classic and timeless Hamptons theme. But there are countless ways to breathe new life and energy into your home’s exterior (an interior) by using some modern colours.

Subtly changing just a few colours in your home with the latest Dulux colour forecast palettes will keep your home fresh and current without having to undergo a full renovation.

Many of our Roof Replacement clients become inspired to complete the transformation of their home’s exterior after they see their home crowned with a new COLORBOND®  roof. 

Conveniently, Dulux has a paint range that features the entire COLORBOND® Colour Palette, so you can easily work your roof colour theme into the rest of your home by painting the exterior to create a fresh new look. 


How to Apply Dulux Colours to Your Home Exterior

In this photo, you can see an example of how one of our clients replaced the roof on their traditional Victorian home with a COLORBOND® Monument Corrugated Roof. 

Inspired by the transformation they couldn’t stop there. They went on to paint the exterior cladding in Dulux COLORBOND® Shale Grey and their windows in COLORBOND® Monument to match their roof. 

To complete their perfect home facade,  they added crisp white trims in Dulux Vivid White to create a clean and modern Hamptons look.


How to Add Touches of Colour

If you’re looking to add more pop to your colour palette, but don’t want to overdo it, there are plenty of ways to add lovely touches of colour from the 2022 Dulux Colour Forecast palette to your home.

You could paint your front door, change the colour of your letterbox, or add an outdoor seat or plant pot in your favourite colour from the Flourish, Restore and Wonder palettes. 

Here, you’ll see our client built a pool house and chose a COLORBOND® MATT Roof in Monument. They then painted the walls in Dulux Basic Coral from the 2022 Dulux Colour Forecast Range Palette Flourish.

Let’s take a look in more detail at each of the palettes in the 2022 Dulux Colour Forecast – Flourish, Restore and Wonder.



The Flourish palette has been inspired by rich traditions from different cultures around the world to create a sense of warmth and intimacy.



The Restore palette is the full spectrum of neutrals ranging from earthy tones of the forest to the more rugged, natural tones of the deep sea, designed to create a sense of comfort and relaxation.



The Wonder palette is all about creating fun, carefree days and bringing our friends and family back into our lives. It features a playful mix of cornflower blue, lilac, lemon, green quartz and rose gold.
