Decorating with luxurious texture, shimmering metallics and unique paint effects is the easiest way to make a design statement.
Comprising Dulux Copper, Copper Patina, Metal Shimmer, Stainless Steel, Gold, and Concrete Effects, these additions to the Dulux Design Effects range are perfect for adding interest to feature walls, updating furniture or even transforming home accessories.
With six new paint effects in a range of colours, the new-look Dulux Design Effects Collection offers homeowners virtually endless possibilities to get creative and inject personality into their DIY projects.
According to Dulux Colour Expert, Andrea Lucena-Orr, textured or unique paint finishes not only add colour but also a level of tactility and personalisation.
'There are so many ways you can create a design statement with Dulux Design Effects. From the simplest idea such as painting pots for indoors plants or a block texture behind your favourite artwork to painting an entire space.
'Painting patterns on a wall with a Design Effect in combination with Dulux Wash&Wear interior paint add a bit of fun to a room. You can even make a design statement by painting your favourite timber side table, lamp base, old vases or ceramic items," says Andrea.
The versatile Dulux Design Effects Collection achieves a unique finish depending on the application technique. Homeowners can experiment with brushes, dry rollers or muslin by dragging the paint in random or overlapping patterns to achieve a truly personalised look.
