Together and independently, the themes represent a reflection of the current social climate and a response to the influence of economic, social and technical developments on the world stage.  For Dulux, its 2012 palette is guided by the ColourFutures™ trends defined by AkzoNobel. Once a year, AkzoNobel, the world’s leading paint company and owner of the Dulux brand, among others, extends a formal invitation to an international group of eminent creative experts from the fields of design, architecture and fashion to gather and determine the key colour trends for the following 12 months.
