Duram – bring Habitat home

With the move towards more conscious and sustainable living, warm neutrals with earthy undertones as featured in Duram’s Habitat Colour Collection are inspired by nature.

Duram’s Habitat Colour Collection draws inspiration from nature’s diverse colour palette. Featuring a selection of 90 inspired paint colours, all conveniently available in 90ml Colour Samples. Earthy and sophisticated, bold yet neutral, it’s never been simpler to find the perfect colour.

With the move towards more conscious and sustainable living, warm neutrals with earthy undertones are inspired by nature such as Otter Trail, Little Karoo and Berg Wind.  Contemporary greys such as Coastal Spray, Heron’s Crest and Clarence Drive remain popular bringing sophistication to any space.  It’s important to see how neutrals change from day to night, so test them on different walls and in every room.  To create the illusion of space, serenity and an airier feel, try Lady Grey, Darling White or Misty Cliffs on the largest surface area.  For a striking accent wall try Black Mussel, Milkwood Tree, Kingfisher Splash or Fire Finch.  These exquisite colours are all available in affordable and convenient 90ml Colour Samples from Duram’s Habitat Colour Collection.

Duram’s richly pigmented paints are available for interiors and exteriors – walls, ceilings, trims or accents – and for any style, providing exceptional colour, luxurious finishes and unbeatable value.  Ideal for interior living spaces, Duram Classic Matt is least reflective and hides imperfections.  Duram Satin Touch’s satin finish creates an elegant interior for high wear areas.  Popular Duram WallTech is a durable low-sheen with a soft glow ideal for interior and exterior.  Duram Armatex’ fine-textured finish covers hairline cracks, hides plaster imperfections and offers all-weather protection on exterior walls.  Duram Bathroom & Kitchen, a hygienic paint, protects against black stains, steam and moisture.  These are complimented with Duram’s enamels that offer a tough and extremely durable finish.  The well-balanced and considered colours can be tinted using high performance pigments and top quality tint bases.  Duram’s decorative paints are low-odour and low-VOC with minimal chemical emissions, protecting your health and that of the environment. Being water-based they provide easy clean up without the need for strong chemicals. Duram’s Colour Smart advanced colour technology allows for beautiful depth of colour, exceptional endurance, fade resistance and high colour accuracy.

The Habitat Colour Collection is available at hardware stores – for more information, visit or call the toll free technical helpline 0800 500 222.
