What The Interior Design Journalists And Bloggers Are Saying About Spiced Honey…

“According to the experts, the tone encompasses a time for re-energising and optimism after the unpredictability of 2018.”
Country Living

“We think this dreamy, neutral hue is as versatile as it is comforting, and would look stunning splashed about a bedroom or living space.”
Home & Antiques

“Get ready to sweeten up your home next year. It’s a warm neutral – think woody, sandy and inviting amber tones.”
Homes & Property

“It’s a shade that lends itself to a broad spectrum of interior styles.”
House Beautiful

“Dulux’s pick for 2019’s standout colour is a warm shade of caramel, which they say will provide a comforting haven after a difficult year.”
House & Garden

“It’s the ultimate neutral, as it works just as well with terracottas, mustards and deep petrol blues as it does dusky pinks and lilacs.”
Ideal Home

“It’s another cosy, warm, cashmere sort of shade.”

“My guess, based on past years, is that everyone will say no today and then in a few months it will start creeping in.”
Mad About The House

“It’s a warm biscuity tone… think salted caramel with a hint of amber. Delicious!”
Michelle Ogundehin, Former Editor in Chief at ELLE Decoration UK

“Personally, I really like the cosy tones of the new colour. I am an autumn decorator, in that I choose to decorate my home for those dark evenings, when the fire is lit and the lights are on.”
The Girl With The Green Sofa

“Planning on giving your home a bit of a revamp? It’s the perfect time of year for it.”
You Magazine

However, this thread on Mumsnet wasn’t quite so positive about Dulux’s selection of Spiced Honey as next year’s ‘must have’ colour…
“Dulux colour of the year 2019 = heavy nicotine staining!”
