In an Australian first, boutique retail trade event Life Instyle will be working with Dulux Australia to showcase the latest colour trends at the Melbourne gift fair.
Style Lab will feature an exclusive ‘sneak preview’ of the Dulux 2016 colour forecast, hosted by renowned Australian interiors experts Bree Leach and Heather Nette King. The installation will display four colour palettes inspired by key global trends and new directions in design for 2016.
“Style Lab allows us to bring concepts and trends to life using never-before-seen products from the many amazing exhibitors in a visually spectacular setting and this time around we get an exciting preview of Dulux’s coveted 2016 colour forecast which is due to be officially released to the industry at the end of August,” says event director Amelia Coote-Harris.
“It gives retailers the opportunity to see different ways of being able to style and the important role colour palettes play in the process.”
Life Instyle is held from 30 July to 2 August at the iconic Royal Exhibition Building in Melbourne. This year’s event unveils the latest trends and design-led products from more than 600 brands to buyers for the retail season ahead.
