A breathtaking use of colour takes out Grand Prix title at 32nd Dulux Colour Awards.

Courage and innovation typified the inspired use of colour in the winning projects of the 32nd Dulux Colour Awards. The program recognises the most creative and considered use of colour in nine project categories.

Boasting a record number of entries for 2018 – more than 300 from around Australia and New Zealand combined – this year’s awards highlighted the impact of colour as an architectural and interior design device.

From the warm muted tones of a studio interior to the shimmering metallic finish on a period home extension, the varied application of colour was demonstrated with universal flair, but it was the subtle sophistication of a suite of coloured panels on an outback community facility that drew  applause from the  panel of judges.

The Fitzroy Crossing Renal Hostel, by Iredale Pedersen Hook Architects, was awarded the Grand Prix, as well as the Commercial Exterior Award, for what the judging panel describes as, “the perfect balance of colour and volume. Colour has been used in a truly meaningful way, adapted to community and worked into the context of it – it’s truly breathtaking.”

Choosing colour for the home can be a tiresome and frustrating task. If you’re on the hunt for paint colour inspiration, we guarantee each 2018 category winner will inspire homeowners to get creative with their painting.
