Let’s take a moment to appreciate the most incredibly beautiful finish that the range’s unique Velvet Matt emulsion has. 

Made with the finest ingredients and technology, it’s been specially formulated to contain tiny ground particles of premium pigment, which gives the paint a velvet-like feel at the same time as a matt finish; it really does feel as soft and luxurious as it looks.

Alongside the Velvet Matt finish emulsion, there is also an Eggshell for woodwork, and a premium undercoat for a perfectly smooth and robust finish. 

Dulux promises excellent depth of colour across the range and its specially blended formulations offer effortless application, making any painting job a breeze - for you or your decorator.

To help you with your challenge - choosing the colours - we’ve picked out a few of our favourites for the season. Cherry Truffle is a rich, sumptuous chocolate brown that will create a cosy, cocooning mood in a living room, whilst the soft taupe of Romney Wool gives a light and spacious feel, especially in a south-facing space.

Potters Pink is perfect for the bedroom, transporting you to an Edwardian cottage garden where the flowers are in full bloom; you can almost smell the scent of the peonies. Whilst Waxed Khaki is a wonderful green-grey that celebrates the English countryside, bringing the outside in.
