Brave Ground is Dulux's colour of the year 2021

Dulux's colour of the year features in today's Dezeen Weekly newsletter

The latest edition of our Dezeen Weekly newsletter features the colour of the year for 2021 from paint brand Dulux.

Dulux has unveiled a "reassuring" earthy beige hue called Brave Ground as its colour of the year for next year.

The colour was selected as an "elemental" hue that reflects "the strength we can draw from nature, our growing desire to align more with the planet and looking towards the future" – particularly in a world still dealing with the challenges of the coronavirus crisis.

Readers find the choice "very fitting", with one commenting "after 2020 I might as well paint everything brown. Sh*tty year, sh*itty colour."
