Back to nature

Wattyl’s growing focus on sustainability will see the use of natural colours inspired by organic, pigmented dyes in 2020. The soft, earthy quality of these tones mirror the growing trend to implement materials and processes that are kinder to the planet.

Neutrals have become deeper and warmer, while rich, earthy brown has emerged as a key colour for the coming year – perfect as a backdrop for indoor plants. 

Brown also works well with tinted sheer textiles and translucent materials, cutting through the noise of the world to create spaces with a sense of calm. Celebrate brown by pairing it with untreated materials and fibres such as stone and wood, and reconnect with nature.
