Spiced Honey is a wonderfully versatile colour with warm caramel tones encompassed in it. This shade of amber was chosen by Dulux and it perfectly captures their theme this year, Let the Light in.

It is contemporary, yet traditional at the same time, depending on what colours and soft furnishings you match it with. This colour creates a sense of optimism, peace and happiness. Heleen van Gent, Creative Director of AkzoNobel’s Global Aesthetic Cenre, says “It’s a colour which can be calming or nourishing, stimulating and energizing, depending on the light and colours surrounding it.”

With the world experiencing a new sense of energy, optimism and purpose this is a great colour to reflect our state of mind. Last year was a very different story and Dulux want’s to embrace the happier side of our emotions.

While it nods to the 1970’s Spiced Honey is the perfect colour for a contemporary home. We would advise pairing this earthy colour with white, whether it be on the walls or in your furniture and soft furnishings. For a more retro look compliment this colour with soft pinks, burgundy’s and dark navy’s.

It works well as a wrap around colour in a room, or as a feature wall depending on the size if your room, the lighting and the décor style.
