Milan in Colour · The Colour Forecasters

Milan in Colour

Tuesday 12th June 2018

It feels like an eon ago, but in fact, it was only seven weeks ago that we were on the ground in Milan, at the Salone Del Mobile, with Dulux!

Today, we share our final instalment of ‘Milan in Colour’ – our four-part video series following four different Australian creatives as they navigate the world’s biggest design fair.

We’re wrapping up the series with colour forecasters Bree Leech and Andrea Lucena-Orr from Dulux, who divulge how the colour trends on show in Milan inform their annual Dulux Colour Forecast. Andrea and Bree discuss the colour palettes they uncovered in Milan, and give a unique insight into the mysterious colour forecasting industry!
