What is Delux Heritage?
Created in 1990, Dulux Heritage is a range of paints by Dulux, specialising in luxurious, rich colours, perfect for period homes. The range has been carefully curated with the help of Patrick Baty, a colour historian and paint analyst who assisted in finding the perfect paint colours inspired by history.

With more than 100 colours to choose from, Dulux Heritage is all about offering a timeless palette that is inspired by heritage shades, but works perfectly in busy, modern homes. There are two paints in the range – Heritage Velvet Matt and Heritage Eggshell.
To achieve a contemporary spin on a period look, try matching up one of the brand’s rich, bold heritage colours with a complementary muted neutral, for example, pairing Florentine Red with Candle Cream.
