Introducing Spiced Honey – The Dulux Colour of the Year

It’s hard to believe that a whole year has passed since the launch of “Heart Wood”, Dulux’s colour of the year for 2018, but it’s true. So instead of dwelling on the past let’s look to the future and take a look at the 2019 Dulux colour of the year “Spiced Honey”.

What Dulux say about it

“Chosen by Dulux colour experts to reflect the new positive mood of the moment. Spiced Honey is a warm amber tone, inspired by the beauty and versatility of honey itself. Spiced Honey can be soothing or calming, cosy or vibrant, depending on the palette you pair it with.”

Colour palettes

As well as the colour itself Dulux have also created a set of themed palettes to accompany the new colour and help customers to blend the colour into their home décor. Whether looking to create a soothing place to think, a calming place to dream, a cosy place to love or a vibrant place to act, the new palettes will help you make the most of your new colour scheme.

The goal of the colour of the year is to understand the needs of consumers and bring a colour into their homes that will help create a positive mood that affects their life. Spiced Honey is a warm natural tone which is designed to “Let in the Light” as part of a wider theme for the year ahead.

With a rich caramel hue, Spiced Honey looks great when paired with whites and off-whites in furniture and furnishings and helps create a space that is relaxed and cosy. It can also be paired with bolder colours to help create a sense of action and a vibrant space that is full of energy.

Using Spiced Honey

There are many ways that you can use Spiced Honey to bring balance and harmony to your colour scheme and here are just a couple of ideas. Combine with auburn flam, spicy paprika and velvet cake to create a warm and cosy room, perfect for country settings.

Alternatively for a more subtle approach why not use Spiced Honey as an accent colour and balance the warm tones with neutral colours such as light blues, delicate pinks and off-whites to help create a calm and relaxing environment.
