Behind the scenes at Metricon’s BuildSmart Series colour inspiration masterclass


When it comes to updating your home’s interior, not only is it important to decide on the style you are looking to achieve, but at the same time, consider whether your walls are due for a new lick of paint - or colour refresh at that. With so many paint colours available and innovative new ways of adding colour to the home, the possibilities reach as far as your imagination will take them.

At Metricon’s recent BuildSmart Series Colour Inspiration Masterclass with Dulux Australia and The Design Files' Lucy Feagins, guests enjoyed learning about trending colour schemes including how they can be achieved in the home through the clever use of paint, creative design and interior styling.

The evening kicked off with a presentation in Metricon’s theatrette, where guests learnt of trending paint colours which included dark greys, soft greys as well as those exuding warmth such as rusted orange, ochre and brown tones. Remember the rich warm palette of 1970s style? It’s all coming back.

Not only were trending colours in interiors the topic of the evening, but on the night, guests were also treated to insider tips and hints for incorporating colour using paint – without painting an entire wall. Trends such as painted diagonal lines and circles were shown to be the new and creative solution for adding pops of colour and interest to a space.

The creativity didn’t end there, with guests moving into Metricon’s state of the art Studio M selection centre where they enjoyed refreshments while getting hands on, creating mood boards to suit their individual style and colour selections.
