Wattyl – Monthly Colour Palette Inspiration

Looking for inspiration to freshen up your home? Each month in 2023, Wattyl selects a new colour palette to feature, showcasing their seasonal favourites.

From humble beginnings over 100 years ago, Wattyl has grown to become one of Australia’s most loved and trusted paint brands. With the colour of the month theme, you may be introduced to new colours that you haven’t considered before.

January – Neutral

Wattyl Beach Life represents January to remind us of a relaxing holiday, sandy beaches, and golden summer days. The coastal palette of Beach Life paired with the crisp white of Calcium and soft green of Sea Turtle will create an earthy and relaxing beachside feel in your home all year round.  Beach Life is a versatile paint colour, making it the perfect choice for the living area or home office.


February – Orange

Wattyl’s Pumpkin Puree represents February to inspire us to spice up a neutral or monochrome palette. This paint colour is commonly paired with warm neutrals to create an inviting, fun, and casual space. For a zesty citrus palette, pair the Pumpkin Puree with the lovely deep tone of Leaves of Green and the crisp white of Feather Dawn.

March – Brown

Wattyl’s Espresso Martini, Glamping, Milkshake, and Black Martini represent March to pay tribute to the start of Autumn. Browns and greens are predominant in nature. As an earthy colour, brown is the perfect backdrop for lush and leafy indoor plants. Luxury fabrics such as leather and plush velvet compliment these paint choices.

April – Purple

Wattyl’s Very Viola, Wattyl Red n Blue, Wattyl Gretel and Wattyl Grape Granita represents April with its striking and memorable appearance. Rich and regal shades of purple have strong associations to creativity and luxury. Purple paint can add a bold and sophisticated touch to any space. When used in deeper shades, purple can provide a stunning feature wall to add drama to the room.

May – White

Wattyl’s Quaker White, Scribbly Gum, Titanium White and Winter Mushroom represents May to add brightness and reflect more light around a room. Wattyl has recommended to add texture to an all white room to create visual interest and avoid it feeling too clinical.

Whether you’re looking to make a bold statement or simply add a touch of colour to your space, Wattyl is a great source of inspiration! With their high-quality paints and a range of beautiful colours to choose from, you’re sure to find the perfect shade for your home.
