Dulux Heritage DH Oxford Blue
Each column in the chart includes two pale, two mid and two deep tones, with the perfect white to complement them at the bottom. Pale tones offer a hint of colour for a light and airy feel, or can be used to gently lift ceilings and woodwork against deep or mid tones. Choose a mid tone to create a cosy and comfortable space. They go beautifully with white or a paler tone of the same colour for a softer look. Deep tones make an impact if you paint one colour on all walls, or use one to enhance a focal point and create a feature. The Heritage whites have been specially selected to coordinate with the other tones in the same column of colour, whether for your woodwork, walls or ceilings.
The easiest way to use the chart is to pick one dominant colour, for your walls for example, and team it with the white at the bottom of the same column, for use on your skirting, door frames or accessories such as chairs. For a classic elegant look, pick one main colour for the room and use the other shades from that column to decorate other elements or for your accessories. Colours in the columns next to each other can also be used to create a subtle layered effect – choose from two or three columns next to each other.Once you have selected your colours, decide which finish you require. This will be influenced by which surface each colour is intended for.
Flat Matt: a highly durable finish for walls and ceilings which results in a smoother, more premium look than standard matt and is perfect for masking uneven surfaces.
Matt: a durable finish for walls and ceilings which helps minimise surface imperfections on walls and ceilings.
Soft Sheen: a top quality, washable emulsion for walls and ceilings with a mid-sheen finish that adds a feeling of warmth.
