Chinese New Year is around the corner as it’s time to light up the house with new colors. Worried which color is the best? Well, take a listen to leading global colour authority, AkzoNobel. Dulux – AkzoNobel’s leading decorative paint brand – has been identifying a Colour of the Year (COTY) for the past 16 years to showcase the correlation between colours and one’s everyday life. This year, Dulux’s Colour of the Year is Spiced Honey.
If you’re worried that brown might be a dim color, you will be surprised by it. Its warm amber tones, Spiced Honey (also knowns as Crème Brulee 00YY 26/220) is best described as versatile, sophisticated and timeless. Depending on the palettes the colour is complemented with, Spiced Honey can induce a sense of calmness, cosiness and burst of energy, and so will give one’s household a spruce of life this Chinese New Year.
The home is an integral element of the celebration as families reunite under one roof, and a fresh coat of paint will signify new beginnings and a fresh outlook for the new Lunar year ahead.
Indra Laban, General Manager, Decorative Paints, Malaysia, said: “Our theme for Dulux’s Colour of the Year in 2019 is ‘Letting the Light in,’ so we truly hope that we continue to make a difference in the lives of Malaysians, not only during this auspicious time, but for many generations to come. We are looking forward to what 2019 has in hold for us and are optimistic that Dulux, our leading decorative paints brand, will help brighten up many homes in Malaysia.
At the CNY event celebration, Dulux invited Master Kenny Hoo, founder of Good Feng Shui to offer us variety of easy and practical tips to improve life. One such way is to use the right colours in a home – by painting a certain wall with a certain colour, good fortune can be amplified while harmful elements can be negated.
Spiced Honey can be complemented with four different colour palettes, each with its own name. ‘A Space To Think’ adds sophistication to a room; ‘A Space To Dream’ adds warmth and encourages rest and reflection; ‘A Space To Love’ can be used to make everyone feel at home; and ‘A Space To Act’ adds energy to boost productivity. I can’t wait to explore Spiced Honey color at my home.
Dulux has over 2,000 colours available for you to discover how you can let the light in and transform your home. You can explore the colours at www.dulux.com.my or alternatively head to www.facebook.com/DuluxMalaysia for more updates.
