A tribute to Australia’s landscape in the colours of 2024

The 2024 Laminex Colour Collection draws inspiration from the Australian landscape, infusing global interior design trends with its rich tapestry of native tones and textures.


This year marks a significant milestone for Laminex, celebrating 90 years of local manufacturing and a legacy of delivering quality products synonymous with Australian design. Comprising nine soft and inviting colors, the 2024 Laminex Colour Collection reflects Australia’s diverse tones and enduring connection to its natural surroundings.

“As a proudly Australian-owned and operated company for 90 years, the 2024 Colour Collection is admiringly inspired by our striking landscape,” says Sacha Leagh-Murray, General Manager Sales and Marketing at Laminex.

From calming greens reminiscent of eucalyptus leaves to warm clay-based hues embodying the outback, each shade pays homage to the country’s flora, fauna, and geographical features. For those seeking earthy neutrals, Rocky Bay, Coolum Sand, Outback Clay, and Platypus offer warm, inviting tones inspired by iconic Australian landscapes.

Meanwhile, Rocky Bay, with its slightly greyed, near-neutral white, evokes the soft warm sands of Rottnest Island, while Coolum Sand channels the creamy sands of Queensland’s Coolum Beach for a relaxed coastal feel. Outback Clay captures the vibrance of soft, dried clay and sands found in New South Wales’ Mungo National Park, adding warmth and depth to any space.

Soft green tones, including Gumnut, Eucalypt, and Daintree, create a calming effect reminiscent of bushlands and rainforests. Gumnut offers a slightly greyed, soft, yellow-based green inspired by the hues of a newly formed gumnut, while Eucalypt evokes the rich palette of eucalypt forest leaves. Daintree, a richer green, transports one to the moss-covered rocks of the Daintree Forest, infusing spaces with serenity and tranquility.

Blue hues such as Macedon Mist and Bluestone then bring a sense of freshness and tranquility to any setting. Macedon Mist, with its dusty, tranquil blue tones, captures the intrigue of mountain mists, while Bluestone offers a deep, greyed slate shade inspired by Tasmania’s Bluestone Beach, injecting energy into coastal and commercial spaces alike.

“Laminex surfaces boast a high degree of durability, making it the perfect material for functional spaces in the home such as kitchens, bathrooms, robes, laundry areas and studies. These are all essential rooms that we engage with daily, so it’s crucial that they not only meet practical requirements, but also offer visual and textural interest.”
