For actors, the Oscars are the highlight of their professional year. In the theatre industry, the Tonys are where on-stage talent is recognised. Authors dream of a nomination for a Booker prize. In the sciences, a Nobel Prize is the pinnacle of success.
For interior decorators, the announcement of the Dulux Colour of the Year is always highly anticipated. It’s when experts on future colour trends give their view on what will be the hot decorative themes over the next year. So, here it is.
The Dulux Colour of the Year 2019 is the delicious sounding Spiced Honey.
Heleen van Gent, head of the Global Aesthetic Centre and chair of the ColourFutures panel, explains the rationale for choosing Spiced Honey.
‘In 2019, as a society, we want to reach out, engage with our communities, make things better and "be the change" – anything from supporting charities to small acts of neighbourly kindness. It’s time to act, and Spiced Honey enables transformation inspiring a positive, emotional change.'
A Taste Of…
Spiced Honey is a marked change in perspective from Heartwood, the Dulux Colour of the Year 2018. Last year’s colour was reflective in tone. That colour trend emphasised the importance of simple, homely pleasures. Heartwood channelled our inherent need to create a comforting cocoon to shelter from a turbulent world. It was the epitome of that elusive notion known as hygge.
The Dulux Colour of the Year 2019 is a warm, soothing shade that sits between a rich caramel and an earthy brown. To see it is to feel instantly energised. It’ll make you both centred and focused. Ready to do great things inside and outside of your home. Welcoming Spiced Honey into your world means, as the saying goes, ‘choosing life’. Whether that’s grandiose civic works or just random acts of kindness, the dynamism of Spiced Honey can be your inspiration.
Honey, I’m Home!
When used in the home you’ll find Spiced Honey is very versatile. It sits well with the very stimulating tones from the related colour palette. Check out Dynamite Red, Open Sky and Velvet Cake to see you can be very bold in a Spiced Honey themed room.
If those colours don’t get your creative juices gushing like a complemented lovey then maybe check your pulse. The possibilities are endless, and the results will be motivating home décor that makes you want to go out and change the world, preferably for the better!
