What Colour Is Dulux Bright Skies?
Dulux Bright Skies is a beautifully pared back light blue shade that has blue and grey undertones to it. This smooth and versatile shade brings a calming and soft feeling with it. Pair with neutral tones or layer with bolder shades for a stand out look. Dulux Bright Skies is the perfect colour for a hallway, bathroom or bedroom.
What Colours Go With Dulux Bright Skies?
It’s always best to start by pairing the colour with its respective undertones as this helps to create a cohesive colour scheme that works flawlessly together.
Bright Skies has both blue and grey undertones, Dulux recommend pairing with Blueberry Lolly, a more defining, darker shade of blue and Horizons, a tonally grey shade with a tint of blue.
Use all three in a colour scheme for a cohesive feel in a room. Use a darker blue such as Blueberry Lolly for a defining accent in the room, or use a similar colour on soft furnishings, cushions and throws to build texture into the room.
Whilst some may consider Bright Skies a bold addition to an interior scheme, it is a relatively pared back shade so it works really well with neutral combinations such as with grey.
A darker grey in a room such as Swordplay is perfect for introducing a defining accent that grounds the room. Use something like this on skirtings, architraves and doors, it will add depth and definition to the space. Dulux recommend pairing with Virtual Reality, a pale grey shade.
You’ll want to introduce another colour into the mix such as cream or white to avoid the room feeling cold, if you opt for a blue and grey colour combination like this.
Designer’s Choice Combinations
Dulux always recommend a few out there colour combinations to pair with their shades, and I kinda like this trio of shades.
Bright Skies is a pared back shade so you can afford to bring a bit of warmth and colour into the equation. Dulux recommend Brave Beige, a beautifully neutral, brown shade, and Tuscan Green, with beautiful golden undertones that really bring some warmth to this coastal inspired shade.
Bright Skies & Black
If you’re looking to create a modern interior with Bright Skies, black accents are an absolute essential part of nailing modern design.
The black is designed to ground and define the space, without it being obtrusive or overbearing in the room. You only need to use black in a few well placed areas, this can be accents on chair legs, black frames, sockets & switches and interior hardware details like door knobs.
Bright Skies & White
Bright white is not an ideal colour to use throughout a home due to the amount of touch ups that will continually be needed. But using a stark white as a contrast to Bright Skies can create a clean cut, and crisp contrast.
An example of this could be using Bright Skies for the walls and a crisp bright white paint for the ceiling, skirting boards and cornices. It helps to lift the room even more, and a small touch of bright white is all you need. If you’re looking to create a coastal inspired interior, this is a flawless colour combination.
Bright Skies & Beige
Cream shades bring a much warmer aesthetic to space than bright white, and it’s a much more forgiving colour against imperfections and scratches.
This warm neutral is a beautiful pairing for Bright Skies, incorporate it by layering different textures too, think boucle, wool and calico to name a few.
Bright Skies & Gold
If you want to inject some warmth to your Bright Skies colour scheme, gold and brass tones are a great way to layer and bring depth to an interior scheme.
Introduce gold tones with cushions, throws, and interior hardware details such as sockets and switches and door hardware. A few well placed, gold tones are all you need to benefit from their warmth, and touch of glamour.
Bright Skies & Sage Green
Hear me out… Blue and green is quickly becoming one of the hottest new colour combinations, it’s long been a pairing not worth exploring but pairing it with soft tones of green (such as sage green) can create a well balanced, warm and ultra relaxed feel.
A perfect combination for bathrooms, bedrooms and any room that you want to create a restful feel. It’s a yes from me!
