Key Lighting and Interior Trends for Autumn 2018 – Spiced Honey
Get those cosy knits out because it’s that time of year again. We’re already seeing the start of Autumn with golden brown leaves crunching under our feet. A cool mist greeting us on our morning commute and darker evenings creeping in at the end of the day. Autumn is a beautiful time of year, did you know the shorter days are a sign for the trees to get ready and prepare for the winter months? They close down and reduce the amount of chlorophyll they produce, which basically means they turn from luscious green to the beautiful orange and red tones you see outside your window. And that’s why we’re delighted with an abundance of golden leaves every September. A new season brings with it a fresh start, new trends appear in the interior world, as we move into the colder months it’s not just ourselves we need to keep warm, our interiors need an injection of warmth and cosiness too. New textures, new colours, new trends and new accessories instantly lift a room. Today, we’re going to look at the new colour from Dulux.
It’s the colour of 2019 according to the paint experts Dulux and the perfect colour for a new season interior trend. This beautiful caramel and latte tone promises to bring positivity, warmth, inspiration and an altogether calming effect. Spiced Honey is also such a versatile colour, it lends itself to many an interior style including scandi, mid century modern and even postmodern settings. Re-energizing your home is key for the new year too, after the hustle and bustle of the festive season our homes need a little TLC, a detox and de-clutter. Adding new fresher colours can work wonders for a tired interior. Here are two styles we think work well with the new Honey Spiced palette.
How to dress your homes with Spiced Honey – Warm Neutrals
A warm neutral palette would look fab against this soothing colour. Think rich burgundy, warm woods , mid century designs and graphic rugs. Choose brass finishes with hints of sultry smoke grey such as our Mid Century Table Lamp and matching pendant, but also keep to a natural aesthetic by incorporating wicker and rattan fittings such as our Honey Wicker Wave ceiling pendant light.
How to dress your homes with Spiced Honey – Intense Hues
Spiced honey is a great tone to mix with bolder colours. Incorporate deep blues and teals for a more regal injection of colour. Our intense hues palette features a touch of deep blue yet still adds enough neutral tone in keeping with the natural look of Spiced honey with the presence of woven baskets and warm brass metals.
