Wild Wonder Dulux Colour of the Year 2023

It’s that time of year again. The leaves are turning, the evenings are drawing in, and the trend forecasters are gazing into their crystal ball. Earlier this week, the paint company Dulux announced its Colour of the Year (it’s yellow), along with four corresponding colour palettes. Yesterday, Farrow & Ball launched 11 new shades of paint. And in two weeks’ time, the American paint company Benjamin Moore will announce their signature colour and palette for 2023. This is edge-of-the-seat stuff. You have to hand it to the paint companies for upping the ante on the buying and selling of paint.

Dulux first. The company makes reasonably priced and widely available paint in a broad range of colours and its annual Colour of the Year (COTY) tends to be a useable wall colour. No alarms and no surprises. Dulux has been at this for 20 years. It knows how to do paint. The colour for 2023 is called Wild Wonder, a greenish gold reminiscent of ripening wheat.
