As the leading global colour authority, AkzoNobel is committed in making the world a more colourful place to live.
To that extent, 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.
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.”
While on the subject of auspicious matters, Master Kenny Hoo, founder of Good Feng Shui, explained that Feng Shui offers a 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.
“Feng Shui opens oneself to a unique way of looking inwards and at their surroundings. It can bring balance, comfort and harmony into an environment. This Chinese New Year, make use of Feng Shui and Spiced Honey to re-energise your homes and create a sense of balance and serenity,” said Master Kenny Hoo.
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.
