Paint colours to go extra-terrestrial in 2017

"Our 2017 paint palette is a collection of galactic-inspired colours," says Deborah Tuck, Store Manager at Dulux Paints, Tsawwassen. "There are some gorgeous night-sky darks along with muted pastels and a variety of intensly rich hues."

For those of us who struggle with what shade of white to use on our interior walls, Deborah suggests being a bit more adventurous.

"The trend for 2017 is definitely toward a mid-intensity grey-violet colour," she explains. "Our Colour of the Year for 2017 is called Starry Sky. It's a colour that will work well in any room in the home."

To help customers get inspiration for colour schemes – both daring and subtle – Dulux offers a Colour Inspiration page on their website. Pick a featured colour and read about how you might incorporate that colour into your décor.

Or use the online organizer to pick various colours and see how they work together.

Another option is to visit the store and chat with Deborah and her team.

"We're always happy to listen to a customer's vision for how they want a room to look and to advise them on our different shades," she says.

The Dulux Paints Tsawwassen store offers a full range of paints for any painting project on your list. There are options for interior and exterior paints, wood stains, primers, and caulking and sealants.

Deborah notes that the key to a great-looking paint job is preparation.

"So often, we just want to jump in and put that gorgeous colour on the wall," she says, "but spending a little time preparing the surface will give you much better results and help you avoid problems along the way."

Once you've moved and covered furniture, give the walls a quick wipe down with a damp rag and vacuum any baseboards and mouldings.

"Don't forget to scrape off any flaking paint and patch all of those small holes or dents," Deborah advises.
