Leading paint brand, Dulux Trade, has revealed its ColourFutures™ colour palettes for 2019, with Spiced Honey the Colour of the Year.
Now in its 16th year, the Dulux Trade ColourFutures 2019 palette is selected to help professionals make colour and design choices for a wide variety of buildings, including residential.
The global panel of top design professionals researched trends, insights and consumer behaviours to decide on its colour of the year – a warm amber tone called Spiced Honey. The panel also designed four complimentary palettes that capture the theme of ‘let the light in’.
Dulux Trade believes that Spiced Honey can be both calming and nourishing or stimulating and energising, depending on the palettes and light surrounding it. The contemporary hue is versatile and lends itself to a broad spectrum of life and interior styles – perfect for reflecting the awakening within society.
Marianne Shillingford, Creative Director for the Dulux brand in the UK, says: “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 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.”
