Dulux’s Colour of the Year for 2019 has been revealed

Spiced Honey has been revealed as Dulux’s Colour of the Year for 2019 – a versatile shade filled with warm and inviting tones of amber and rich caramel signalling positivity, purpose and transformation.

UK paint brand Dulux developed the colour of the year with several themed matching palettes as part of the brand’s industry-acclaimed ColourFutures trend forecast.

A natural, warm brown that looks good enough to eat. The rich caramel tone can be pared with soft pinks, and it also provides the perfect backdrop to make white pop.

“It can be both calming and nourishing or stimulating and energising, depending on the palettes and light surrounding it,” explains Heleen van Gent, head of the Global Aesthetic Centre, Dulux’s colour and trend forecasting team. “The contemporary hue is versatile, sophisticated and timeless and lends itself to a broad spectrum of life and interior styles.”

Dulux’s Colour of the Year is chosen by a panel of experts, who look at emerging global trends and insights – and determine how these impact the way we live. Using these insights, Dulux forecasts the colour palettes that best reflect the world and cultural climate as we move into each new year.

The theme of 2019 is ‘Let in the Light’. After the unpredictability and uncertainty of 2018, where ‘we were overwhelmed by the deluge of news, choices and demands upon our time, causing us to close up and retreat into spaces where we feel safe and cocooned’. Dulux says ‘2019 is the time for awakening’. For the new year ahead, we’re feeling re-energised and ready to start taking positive action.
