The annual colour awards recognises outstanding projects that are unafraid to use colour in ever-more clever ways.
May 10th, 2019
Set at the National Gallery of Victoria, winners were celebrated at the annual Dulux Colour Awards this week. The industry awards program recognises the inspired use of colour across six defined categories, including commercial multi-res exterior, commercial interior public and hospitality, commercial interior workplace and retail, residential interior, single residential exterior and student.
What impressed the jury at this year’s awards was the confidence with which colours is being used in design. “Architects and designers have really set a precedent with their masterful employment of colour to create unexpected, lively, playful and refined interior and exterior spaces,” says Andrea Lucena-Orr, Dulux Colour Planning and Communications Manager.
