Life in Colour with Bree Leech

A Melbourne-based interior designer, stylist, trend forecaster and director of her namesake creative studio, Bree Leech wears many hats. Cementing herself as a powerhouse in the Australian design scene and a trusted voice when it comes to colour and interiors; Dulux Australia, Bec Judd, and West Elm all feature on her big name client list. 

If anyone knows the upcoming seasonal trends we’ll all be coveting, it’s Bree. Her playful, yet warm and refined style has been cultivated over 25 years across multiple design disciplines. We asked Bree about her trend predictions for the coming year and her current inspirations. Think joyful colour and wiggly designs! 

What do you predict the 2022 colour and trends to be?

Having worked on the Dulux Colour Forecast for 2022, I can say that texture, saturated colour and pastel hues are going to be big for 2022.

What are three things that are inspiring you right now?

  • The joyful colour at Australian Fashion Week this year

  • The wiggly design details of Gustaf Westman

  • Everything coming out of YSG Studio

What are you working on at the moment?

Trend directions for the Dulux Colour Forecast 2023.

What’s your favourite space in your home? And why?

At the moment my office has my favourite decor pieces and artwork to keep me inspired and motivated during the busiest times of the year. 

What influences your personal style, home and lifestyle?

Unexpected colour and emotional connection - which for me often mean colours, shapes and styles from my childhood in the 70s and 80s.
