Bring a taste of the outdoors into your home, with the softly textured Sandswept Effects range of paints from Dulux

At the seaside


One of the great advantages of a home by the sea is the ability to draw on the setting to bring an outdoor ambience inside. But even without an ocean view, there are ways to cultivate a seaside atmosphere.

The subtle sandy texture of Dulux Sandswept Effects paints forms an organic-looking finish while adding depth and dimension to a room, says marketing manager Michael O'Donnell.

"The soft, earthy appearance of Dulux Sandswept Effects produces a smooth transition from outdoor living spaces to those inside," he says. "Texture is very popular today because it allows you to evoke settings from a New Zealand beach to a distant desert. With 276 colours to choose from, the options are expansive."

A matt interior water-based paint, Dulux Sandswept Effects is easy to apply with a roller and only requires two coats. To make the application even easier, Dulux offers a CD with simple, step-by-step instructions and tips for achieving the results you are after.

Sample pots enable you to practise your application techniques and confirm your colour scheme.
