Brave (New) Ground: Dulux's Colour of the Year 2021

10th Jan 2021

After an unpredictable 2020, the new year may come with some uncertainty. Dulux's colour of the year, brave ground is a quiet, calm, reassuring one. Brave Ground is a neutral tone with undertones of grey and red. It inspires us to connect with nature, to be grounded after a turbulent year. Here are some suggestions on how to use it in your munchkin's room.

Nursery Wall Covering

The most obvious place for displaying this neutral hue is on your walls. Make sure your walls are smooth because with lighter colours, imperfections become visible. You can choose to have all walls in Brave Ground or just one feature wall. Brave Ground goes well with Dulux's Paper Chain, a light neutral shade. 

Another option is wallpaper. The right nursery wallpaper adds interest to the baby's room, especially if it is an interesting print like Animalis Wallpaper in Multi or Montgolfieres Embroidered Hot Air Balloon Fabric. The great thing about patterned wallpaper is that you can choose any colour in the design and use it in other areas, like curtains or decorative items like plush nursery rugs.

Painted Nursery Furniture

If you are looking for something more interesting, choose your nursery furniture in Brave Ground. The Regency Nursery Collection (pictured) is accented in white, but with our bespoke nursery furniture you can of course have any colour combination- and this goes for all our cot beds and changing units. The same is true for our comfortable rocking glider chairs, available in over 200 fabric options.
