Dulux’s Legacy Palette: Ideas For Living Room Carpet
In Dulux’s 2019 Legacy colour palette, bold, rich hues like aubergine, chocolate, deep aqua and dark crimson are balanced with softer shades in lilac, mauve, sienna and dusty coral. This is the perfect palette if you’re looking to create an atmosphere where old-world charm meets new-world chic.
If you’re inspired by the Legacy colour palette, here are some suggestions for flooring and wall colour combinations.
Colour Combination #1: Autumnal & Regal
The colours: Dusty coral (Shepherd’s Warning S03G7) and rich purple chocolate (Federation Brown S02C8)

The colours: Rich aubergine (Purple Verbena S45C9) and deep dusky mauve (Hothouse Orchid A8)
