The typical New Zealand summer revolves around the great outdoors, with hiking, camping and exploring some of the favourite pastimes for Kiwis.
It's also about spending time with friends and family, and the meaningful connection that brings.
In short, there's a real sense of freedom to be enjoyed over the holidays. These are our golden days, exploring our environment with an almost child-like enthusiasm.
The Dulux Wonder palette brings that playfulness and exuberance into spirited colours, so we can be adventurous with our interiors and capture the irrepressible, fun-loving mood of summer. These colours are tinged with '80s nostalgia when soft tones such as cornflower blue, lilac, lemon, green quartz and rose-gold reflected the boundless optimism of the time.
This is precisely what the Wonder palette is offering up – dreamy, carefree days and all the possibilities the future holds.
Of course, they've been reinterpreted for the 21st century, as this living room beautifully illustrates. It features none other than lilac Dulux Tuakau – the colour of the moment. Life-affirming, yet soft, it really does create an ultra-modern, gentle space for contemplating 2022 and what it has to offer.
In a similar vein, the bedroom's fresh yellow-based green tones of Dulux Matauri Bay is the essence of tranquility and positivity, offering good vibes no matter what. By featuring the crisp white accent of Dulux Southern Alps on the ceiling and trims of both rooms, these summery pastels are perfectly complemented.
