Dulux Colour Workshop shares trends for 2018

With over 30 years of industry experience, Marianne Shillingford knows a thing or two about colour...

The Dulux expert joined the Houzz of 2018 programme in Soho this January to share her knowledge and skills in a workshop dedicated to colour and its power to transform the world around us.

In the hands-on, practical workshop, Marianne shared the secrets of successful colour scheming and visualisation using the latest physical and digital tools.

Everyone learned how to mix their own bespoke colours by hand and eye, and how to name them. They also had the opportunity to get their colour onto the Dulux colour chart!

"Such an interesting few hours... and then the paint mixing. That was a wake-up call!" - Kate McCutcheon, London

"It was such an inspiring day, we absolutely loved it." - Natalie Crawley, interior designer, London

Marianne also shared insights into the process of global colour trend forecasting for the interiors industry and revealed the palettes which will be most influential in 2018.

Attendees to the workshop also received Dulux professional colour samples and fan deck, and a Dulux Colour Wheel.

If you couldn't join this workshop, we are now offering two more of these sessions at the Dulux Academy.
