Dulux Colour of the Year 2023

'Wild Wonder' is Dulux's Colour of the Year for 2023 and this warm, sandy hue will inject a feel-good glow all over the home.


What is Wild Wonder?

We could all do with a post-Christmas, glow-up, right? Enter Wild Wonder: a warm, sandy yellow that colour gurus, Dulux, are declaring as the hue-du-jour for 2023. It’s a tranquil, washed-out yellow that won’t blow your interior socks off like Pantone’s in-your-face Viva Magenta. BUT it is nurturing, natural and oh so soothing to live with: a happy shade for a happy new year. Smiles all round… 
TOP TIP: Love the glow down of Wild Wonder? Then you’ll adore Farrow & Ball’s ‘Farrow Cream’ and ‘Dorset Cream’ too

Is it just another yellow?

On first glance, ‘Wild Wonder’ might look like any other sandy yellow on the paint chart (you know those soft mustards we loved in the early 2000s paired with retro brown?). And yet, Dulux HQ insist that this pale and positive golden tone sums up the mood of the moment – and we couldn’t agree more. 1.‘Wild Wonder’ is a balancing yellow, buzzing with a modern energy to brighten your space. 2. It’s a harmonious yellow that connects us to the outside world. 3. Above all else, this is a happy, sunny yellow, so make ‘Wild Wonder’ your cheat sheet to a joyful home. Right now. 

TOP TIP: Don’t give up on Dulux’s 2022 Bright Skies just yet. The mellow golden tones of ‘Wild Wonder’ offer a sophisticated Scandi vibe when paired with last year’s relaxing blue hue. Put it on your Pinterest board now.
