DULUX, a quality brand by AkzoNobel, yesterday celebrated the conclusion of successful 2014 with a media luncheon, where media members were enlightened with new ways of unlocking the Everyday+ through the use of 2015 colour trends for the Year of the Goat.
According to a press release, Dulux Malaysia last year unveiled AkzoNobel’s Colour of the Year for 2015, which was identified as ‘Copper Orange’. The appointment of Copper Orange as AkzoNobel’s Colour of the Year 2015 was established by a group of global designers and colour experts involved in the research for ColourFuturesTM – an annual global study of colour to identify the major colour trends that will influence interior design in the New Year. By tying these trends together to the central idea of “Everyday+ Finding the wonderful in the normal”, five global colour trends were presented for 2015, namely: “Big nature + small me”, “Layer + layer”, “Unseen spaces”, “Him + Her” and “Friendly Barter +”.
“After many years of searching, connecting and discovering our potential, we want 2015 to focus on bringing out the Everyday+ by finding the wonderful in the normal. All of us at AkzoNobel believe that life should be painted with the vibrancy of colour, wherein every day becomes a potential to make meaningful memories. By exploring under-utilised spaces, as well as our relationship with each other and our environment, we are learning to look at the world around us in new and unique ways,” said Jeremy Rowe, Managing Director of AkzoNobel Decorative Paints, South East & South Asia, Middle East.
In support of Dulux’s continuous effort to encourage “Let’s Colour”, Master Kenny Hoo, Feng Shui ambassador for Dulux Malaysia, shared inspirational Feng Shui tips, as well as his strong knowledge on the use of colours to enhance personal Feng Shui. “The colour orange represents the Earth element – the most auspicious element of 2015. Using suitable colour combinations can achieve good Feng Shui functional effects. For instance, painting Copper Orange in combination with Green in the Southwest sector can trigger lots of positive Qi that brings plenty of celebratory events in 2015, such as job upgrades, greater health, marriage and baby luck. Painting Blue colour in the North sector can bring forth greater wealth luck,” said Master Kenny Hoo.
