Delft refers to the characteristic blue and white earthenware that originated in the Delft region of Holland. Sonica Bucksteg, colour expert at Dulux – who named indigo blue as their Colour of the Year – recommends you bring a dose of Delt into your home:
Put it on display
Use it as a complementary canvas
Allow it to add drama
Did you know? During the Dutch golden years, when the Dutch East India Company widened its reach across the globe, the shapes and forms on Delft earthenware often reflected this economic interaction – which is why you’ll find blue and white earthenware with Eastern as well as Dutch designs.
