'New Normal' - a fitting name for 2022's predictions.

After a year (or two) of pivoting between long walks - sometimes several a day! - and being locked inside our own four walls, the specialists at Wattyl believe we're looking to reconnect with the outdoors and search out a feeling of serene tranquility. Wattyl launches their forecast with the collection of Driftwood, COLORBOND® Mangrove and Beachlife and this threesome makes us think of what houseplants to buy next!



Palette #1 | Return to simplicity

Serene pale blues, perfectly balanced with whites, off whites and soft beige tones, to create a sense of simplicity and peace. You can see a similar use of colour at the Everglade Grandeur display home in Baldivis.

@wattylpaint would recommend bringing this palette to life by pairing with subtle, tactile surfaces and textures to create a sense of calm and relaxation.

Palette #2 | Local Comfort

This collection is made up of warm neutrals in ivory, greiges and browns create the perfect cocooning colour palette. A combination of these choices will make your space feel well-balanced and comfortable but still refined.

@wattylpaint styling tip for this combo is to create a sense of comfort and beauty, team with lush foliage, handcrafted local objects, art and sculpted feature walls.
















Palette #3 | Resilient Optimism

This combination adds real depth and tone to a room. @wattylpaint chose these shades to point towards nostalgic references while setting the scene for today’s shared culture and diversity. Breathe new life and energy into a space by choosing uplifting yellow based colours contrasted with reassuring blue and grey tones.

Palette #4 | Conscious Connection

@wattylpaint chose green infused colours, inspired by nature, embrace our innate need to connect with the natural environment. When paired with textured walls, timber and stone, plus lots of foliage and nourishing daylight, they combine to satisfy our yearning to bathe in nature.
