The new year is almost upon us so it’s the perfect time to get a head start on updating your interiors with a fresh new look. Here are some tried and tested ways of introducing the hottest shades of the season into your homes.
Colour has the biggest effect on your space, plus a pot of paint is an affordable and easy way of updating your interiors. Dulux have named their colour of the year as Spiced Honey. They say that it ‘reflect[s] the new positive mood of the moment. Spiced Honey is a warm amber tone, inspired by the beauty and versatility of honey itself.
Spiced Honey can be soothing or calming, cosy or vibrant, depending on the palette you pair it with.’ Paired with earthy hues like terracotta and sage greens it will have a calming and tranquil effect on your space.
