Amanda Daunt

When did you start working with Dulux?

I started working for Dulux five years ago as a colour consultant.

What were you doing before that?

Before Dulux, I worked as a Visual Merchandising Display Manager for Debenhams Ireland in their Cork and Kildare stores and worked internationally in their franchise stores in India and Cyprus.

Gatsby Blue or Denim Drift?

Oh, that’s a difficult one as I like both colours but probably, I would veer more towards Denim Drift for its longevity and timelessness.

Favourite neutral colour?

Little Heron from our new MODA Collection, it’s a gorgeous warm grey that works anywhere.

Best advice when choosing colour?

Always purchase a tester before committing to a colour, brush two coats onto A4 card and move it around the space, view it in artificial and natural light to see how it behaves before deciding.

Tea or coffee?

I love a good coffee; my Nespresso machine has been the best purchase ever!

Dogs or cats?

Dogs of course, I have a wire fox terrier called Baxter whom I adore.

Early riser or Night Owl?

An early riser, I like to get up and out for a walk with my dog first thing in the morning before starting my day.

Favourite  food during recent Lockdown?

I like to eat healthy as much as possible but home baking especially Guinness brown bread was my favourite lock down food.

What colour would you recommend for a mood boost in 2021?
As our homes have became so important during the Covid Pandemic, they have never worked so hard to give us a safe space to eat, sleep, exercise and work in. Our new Dulux Colour of the Year for 2021 – Brave Ground is a warm, earthy tone, it creates a feeling of stability, growth and provides a firm foundation for change and creativity in our home.

We are thrilled to have Amanda  back on our  Facebook on Monday 21st June from 11am-3pm for free online colour consultations. Check out our Facebook page to also be in with a chance to win some Dulux vouchers .
