Dulux recently released their 2021 colour of the year – Brave Ground – a tone intended to provide feelings of stability, offer strength and focus towards creativity, and to connect back to nature. It’s an organic shade, found in natural wood and stone, and is filled with warmth and richness as well as comfort and calm.
Alongside Brave Ground, Dulux also proposed four colour palettes that work alongside the shade, each with its own character and ambience, and each acting as a fantastic guide for tile combinations.
Reds and pinks bring out the neutrality in Brave Ground, whilst acting as a partner to the shades, toning them down and bringing them back to earth.
The bold, warm shades are still able to shine, but with earthiness and presence alongside rich, yet pale, colours.
A modern and earthy palette combining mustard and ochre tones, these timeless colours combine with Brave Ground to create a positive space that is highly stylish and characterful.
Browns and coppers are also included for a varied, yet harmonious, space.
These delightful neutrals have a natural softness about them as well as a richness found amongst the browns. The resulting combination is effortlessly chic – neutral and calm but full of personality.

Playing on the nature theme, greens and blues are suggested alongside Brave Ground to create “a comforting connection to the world outside”. These classic colours are always popular in the home, ensuring that this colour palette works well with both traditional and contemporary interiors.
The everlasting popularity of blue and green also means the tile world has plenty to choose from.
