Forget boring interiors – with the new additions of Dulux Duramax Metallic Finish Rose Gold, Chalky Finish and Terracotta Primer & Sealer to the Dulux Duramax Spray Effects range – adding impact and personality to your home has never been easier. You can breathe new life into dated furniture, create dynamic displays, or give inexpensive accessories a luxe makeover in no time.

The Dulux Duramax Spray Effects range, comprising of 49 on-trend colours and specialist finishes including marble, metallic, bright, enamel, chalky, terracotta, granite and crackle effects, is perfect for a quick weekend project. No brushes or cleaning agents are required – simply spray on the rapid-dry coatings and objects will be touch dry in 20 minutes and ready to use in an hour. And you don’t need any experience to use them. The finishes have been specially designed for ease of use so that even beginners who have never tackled a paint makeover project can achieve great results.

“Paint is about so much more than just changing the colour of the walls – it can add depth, interest and texture, and completely change the way you feel about your home,” says Andrea Lucena-Orr, Dulux Colour Expert.

“Adding eye-catching accents is one of the most effective ways to lift a dull space. Fortunately, you don’t have to go out and spend a fortune to find them – simply create your own using Dulux Duramax Special Effects, which can be applied to most surfaces.

“Rose Gold is one of the hottest trends and it’s incredibly versatile,” she says. “It has more warmth than gold and silver, and looks fabulous paired with classic navy and white, deep greens and earthy neutrals. Use Dulux Duramax Metallic Finish Rose Gold to transform a plain pendant light into a glam feature above the kitchen bench; or create a rose-tinted vignette from a trio of simple glass vessels that you can display on a shelf or coffee table.”

“The vintage look is still going strong in 2018 in both minimalist and traditional homes” says Lucena-Orr. “There really are no rules about what you can use where – we’re seeing a blending of styles and eras in 2018. Dulux Duramax Chalky Finish, with its velvety, ultra-matt appearance, is a quick and easy way to add character and antiqued appeal to a cabinet or chest of drawers, or smaller decorative accessories.

“Our love affair with indoor plants is on the rise, which means that pots and planters are under the spotlight more than ever,” says Lucena-Orr. “Rather than forking out on designer pots, simply create your own by painting inexpensive terracotta pots in the latest hues. Priming and sealing pots with a coating such as Dulux Duramax Terracotta Primer & Sealer is essential for achieving a professional finish.”

“There are so many different ways you can use Dulux Duramax products to refresh your home, from upcycling old picture frames, lamp bases, chairs, kitchen stools, shelving, garden settings and decorative items,” she says. “Those little colour accents have more power than you might think, play with your creative side and try something new.”
