Retreat

Earth-based hues create a harmonious setting to help with inspiration and creativity.

With a homely aesthetic, Retreat draws on a nostalgic mix of comfort and security. From sleeping to eating, and working to working out – most homes are becoming the interior hub for many busy, action-packed days. What was once a place for rest and relaxation now embodies a living environment of family, work and play.

As our home and work lives continue to blur, we should upgrade our spaces accordingly to become a hybrid of functionality. This offers the ultimate palette for flexible living.

Draw on nostalgia, comfort and security, and make way for textures that are naturally authentic, like stained timber and feature materials that are sourced sustainably.

 

The Retreat Powder Coat Pallet

The Retreat palette offers endless opportunities to blend a stylish home office into a place full of comfort and security. Express yourself through accessories and inspiring artwork. Indulge in tranquility by contrasting darker hues seen in Duratec Eternity Bronze Pearl and Duralloy Mangrove, with a light and softer palette. A neutral grey creates a soft and contemporary look making Surreal Effects Hammer Grey Hammer the perfect choice. Pair with a deep blue like Duralloy Blue Ridge, and warm white which balances earthy colours.


Nourish

A renewed palette of warm neutrals inspires fresh interest and can be enhanced by adding accents of yellow and green.

We spend most of our lives in a digitally saturated environment. Nourish encourages us to unplug and be present in the moment. Indulge in a nurturing palette that revitalises your home and nourishes the soul. We spend most of our lives in a digitally saturated environment.

Nourish draws on nature to hero tactility and the need for comfort. It looks to rounded forms and soft objects to blend the identity between decor and furniture.

 

The Nourish Powder Coat Pallet

The Nourish palette captures the deep appreciation for natural beauty as soothing colours encourage moments of stillness. Scheming with a soft, natural hue such as Dulux Duratec Zeus Matt Canvas Cloth, creates a calming and flexible colour palette. Layer with textures, such as Surreal Effects Mannex Suede, and add earthy tones to complete the look. Duralloy Rivergum Beige suits this pallet perfectly. The influence of timber against soothing colours like Duralloy Light Grey provides a balancing rustic feel.


Reset

Life may feel a little slower, but each moment is enriched by building new connections with those around us.

With uplifting colours and a bold sense of renewal we welcome the new normal with open arms. It’s time to renew ourselves, by embracing unified colours and retro influences.

As we draw back into the comfort of our homes, we explore vivid recollections of adventure and discovery.

 

The Reset Powder Coat Pallet

Stay upbeat with the stronger colours in the Reset palette. Bolder tones lift interiors to brighten your outlook. Duratec Intensity Flame and Duratec Intensity Desert are great additions to this pallet and add vibrant pops of fun retro colour hint at 70s nostalgia. An eclectic mix of old and new mesh together creating a happy space to energise your home. Electro Flat White is versatile and harmonises beautifully with a variety of surfaces. Duratec Elements Copper Ore adds further pops of textured colour to the palette.
