Dulux Colour of the Year 2019: Spiced Honey

Marianne Shillingford, Creative Director for Dulux visited the National Design Academy to present Dulux Colour of the Year 2019: Spiced Honey.

Spiced Honey has a warm amber tone that perfectly captures the Dulux ‘Let the Light in’ theme. It can be calming and nourishing, or more stimulating and energising, depending on the light and colours surrounding it.

Truly versatile and contemporary, Dulux Colour of the Year for 2019 complements a broad spectrum of life and interiors styles and is the ideal choice for reflecting a new sense of optimism.

 

Dulux Colour of the Year 2019: Spiced Honey

 

Each year, Dulux asks a team of top designers, architects, colour creatives and trend experts to be their eyes and ears around the world. It’s their job to spot the cutting-edge trends that are going to have the biggest impact on our lives in the future.

These experts then come to Dulux Global Aesthetic Centre to share their insights with the Dulux colour team, at an intense but inspiring three-day trend forecasting session. They bring vital information about societal, cultural, design and lifestyle trends as well as details about the colours and styles that are being adopted by the most influential fashion, product and interior designers.

Together, they build a clear picture of where the world is going, which helps define the mood of the moment and the key consumer trends for the coming year.

According to Marianne Shillingford, Creative Director for Dulux:

“Last year, many of us were left unsettled by global events, so we closed our doors to retreat and regroup. Now we feel ready to throw open our windows and face the world again. Our trend research shows that people around the world are experiencing a renewed sense of energy, optimism and purpose. There’s a desire to reach out, engage with others, to make things better and ‘be the change’. That change can be anything from marching for women’s rights and fishing plastic out of the ocean to small acts of neighbourly kindness. People are ready to seize the moment.
Now is the time to think, to dream, to love and to act.”
