Inspired by Dulux Colour of the Year
6th September 2018
Dulux have revealed ‘Spiced Honey’ as their colour of the year for 2019. A departure from the grey and lilac themes that have been everywhere of late, we were quite pleased to see caramel tones making a comeback. These shades are perfect to create a warm and cosy room and turn your home into a peaceful and relaxing space.
Dulux’s ‘colour of the year’ is decided by an expert panel of colour designers, design specialists, trend forecasters, architects and editors from around the world who join together to discuss what we increasingly need from the spaces around us. Capturing a universal theme, they suggest a colour that they believe embodies the mood of the moment and will be popular in the year ahead.
Dulux says “As we move forward into 2019, we find this pause has given people time to re-energise and deal with the sense of unpredictability with positive action, optimism and purpose. If the unpredictability of last year forced people to retreat and regroup, 2019 is the time for their awakening. We are ready to “Let in the Light”. This palette is about creating a home where we can surround ourselves with the people and things we love – and also where we can be kind to ourselves. It’s about having somewhere to enjoy time with friends, neighbours and family."
'Spiced Honey' has been identified as a colour that can complement richly pigmented shades like terracottas and reds but work equally well with neutrals too. If you would love to incorporate this colour into your floor then take a look at our carpet selector to see similar tones.
