Renewal Stories

I love colour, I love the way that it can express so much without saying a word. How different shades convey different emotions and how colour can affect you without you even realising.

Dulux have set themselves the challenge of discovering how colour has changed and touched the lives of people all over the World and they want you (yes you!) to get involved and share your stories with them. They will be creating a series of films about how colour can 'renew' people's lives starting with how it has already affected people.

I'm affected by colour every day, it's amazing how much a bright blue sky can lift my mood or how seeing someone with colourful socks poking out of their brogues can put a smile on my face, it's the little things that have the most effect.

One of my colour stories is how I've been trying to brighten up my day to day outfits (with a little help from one of the guys in Design at work!) by making a conscious effort to wear a different colour every day, it's really helped me to explore my wardrobe and find alternatives to the usual black and grey, even if it has been a little out of my comfort zone.

Has colour affected you? Dulux (and I!) would love to hear how colour has changed you, even if it's just embracing a colourful wardrobe or being empowered by a fresh lick of bright paint in your bedroom.

Here's a few questions to get you thinking:
  • When has colour had a powerful impact on your life?
  • Tell us about your relationship with a particular colour or colours
  • What 3 words do you associate with that colour?
  • What details from your life, your culture and your city would you like to show us, and how has colour played a part?
All you have to do is send your story to in word, video or image format, it can be as short or as long as you like, the entries will be reviewed by a panel of judges and their chosen stories will be made into a documentary created by leading film-makers, exciting no?

Please leave me a little comment too so I can read about your colourful past, present and future. I'm really passionate about this project and would love to hear what you have to say!
