Milan in Colour

Milan in Colour · Lucy Feagins, Editor

If you’ve been following along on Instagram, you may have noticed that our team were in MILAN last week, attending the world’s biggest design fair, the Salone Del Mobile, with Dulux.

WOWSERS what a week! The Milan fair is an annual pilgrimage for designers and creatives from across the globe, and is a melting pot of international design trends. We spent a week exploring the various exhibits, catching up with Aussie designers doing us proud on the global stage, and soaking up all the creative ideas on show.

As you guys know by now, our team were very lucky to make the trip to MILAN last month to attend the world’s biggest design fair, the Salone Del Mobile, with Dulux!

Milan Design Week draws around 400,000 visitors each year, bringing together the very best in international design. During our time there, we were proud as punch to see a great contingent of Aussie designers in the mix, and of course, design inspiration overload, with all kinds of exhibits and installations from a host of other designers and international design brands.

Today we launch our second film from Milan, featuring, ah, ME!  In this episode, I share my favourite discoveries from the fair, along with key trends and colours to watch out for, as they filter through to our own homes and design projects here in Australia.

As our ‘Milan in Colour’ series unfolds over the coming weeks, you’ll hear from award-winning interior designer David Flack of Flack Studio, and colour forecasters Bree Leech and Andrea Lucena-Orr from Dulux will divulge how Milan Design Week informs their annual Dulux Colour Forecast. Stay tuned!
