Fill Your Home with Colours and Light

Every year, Deepavali is widely celebrated by Malaysians across the nation. Also known as the ‘Festival of Lights’, you will see bursts of colours on this day from the many celebrations that family and friends do – from day to night. In essence, Deepavali signifies the triumph of light over darkness, the victory of good over evil, as told from folklores passed down from generations to generations.


And indeed, victory does come in many shapes and forms. After months of uncertainties, staying at home and feeling shut in, our victory comes from a renewed freedom to be outdoors and in the fresh air. This is our light at the end of the tunnel, as life returns to some semblance of normalcy.

Therefore, as we look forward to brighter, more optimistic days ahead, what better time than now to refresh the four walls that have surrounded us these past months, to reflect the jubilant, celebrative Deepavali mood? At AkzoNobel, a leading global paints and coatings company and maker of premium quality paint, Dulux, we bring you the expertise and inspiration for your Deepavali celebration.


This Deepavali, let’s look at some colours inspired by AkzoNobel’s Colour of the Year 2022 – Bright SkiesTM, specifically the ‘Workshop Colours’, one of the four available palettes that complements Bright Skies. These colours include blue, bright pink and yellow that will bring to life a kaleidoscope of colours to make your Deepavali celebration all the more joyful, underlined by positive tones for a more festive atmosphere at home.

As AkzoNobel’s Colour of the Year 2022, Bright Skies feels like a breath of fresh air and being in the great outdoor – something we really need after having spent a large majority of 2020 and 2021 at home. The bedroom, a space where you start and end your day, will be the perfect place to renew with shades of Bright Skies (Blueberry Mash 14BB 55/113) as you prepare yourself for a highly energising day of celebrations and thereon, your quiet haven to wind down at the end of it all.

Dulux Bright Skies (Blueberry Mash 14BB 55/113)

The colour yellow is a prominent colour that generally signifies wealth and is highly significant in many communities. In the richness of Deepavali, a sunny splash of yellow on the walls of your kitchen is bound to excite your guests and family members, thanks to the brightness of its hues. In the picture, a bright yellow – Olive Fantasy (34YY 31/502) – is used sparingly to add a hint of contrast to the Bright Skies wall. As with many festive celebrations and during Deepavali, the kitchen will be the central hub of activities as we partake on the delicacies of murukku, poori, briyani rice, and not forgetting the bright and sweet ladoos. Often accompanied by lots of conversation, we want the kitchen to be a warm and welcoming space, so these joyful, bright coloured combinations will just make your Deepavali extra fun!

As much as we love spending time around the dining table and enjoying the Deepavali delicacies, we will naturally veer towards the living room as a more comfortable place to sit and chat with friends and family. With the right colour palettes, the living room provides an energetic and engaging environment for everyone to socialise and spend time together, or simply be a space where our guests can relax

In the picture, the bright pink hues of Santa Rosa (10YR 37/143) takes centre stage, while Rich Blush (29YR 27/355) enhances the spaces surrounding the cabinets to make it stand out. Complimented by the bright and airy Bright Skies as a feature wall, the attention is now cast upon the painting, making it the centrepiece.
