August Color of the Month: Honey Glow
08/08/2017 | specs+spaces staff |
August, known for its dog days of summer, can easily be one of the hottest months of the year. It’s only fitting then that our Dunn-Edwards August color of the month Honey Glow (DE5354) — which doubles as our 2017 Color of The Year — be one of the hottest color trends around.
The Inspiration Behind Honey Glow
Honey Glow is warm and inviting. It is a versatile color that brings summer inside. Honey Glow’s rich color is derived from global trends and influences, such as the Rio Olympics and the current plight of the honey bee as its threatened with extinction. As such, Honey Glow is meant to inspire a curiosity for exploring the world around us.
How To Use Honey Glow With Interiors
With this trending yellow you can bring both a dash of youthful energy and global sophistication to any space. Design a whimsical kitchen nook or hit the right notes with a bold front door — for high-traffic areas or exterior paint jobs try Dunn-Edwards Honey Glow EVERSHIELD® and ARISTOSHIELD® for a finish that is is as durable as it is beautiful. No matter in what room you choose to use this trending paint color, here are a few of our favorite ways to accent it.
- Pair Honey Glow with July’s color of the month Rosy Cloud (DE5182) and Black (DEA002) to create a modern, yet playful, glam aesthetic.
- Take a cue from interior designer Mariah O’Brien and accent this golden yellow hue with a bold blue for a space that feels worldly and bohemian. Try accent colors like Dunn-Edwards Summer Lake (DE5838) or Deep Sapphire (DEA137).
- For an additional bold look, pair Honey Glow with purple textiles and decor accent to create a space with romance and worldly sophistication.
- For a traditional color pairing incorporate off-whites and warm neutrals like Cottage White (DEW318) and Birchwood (DEC752) with Honey Glow.
What makes Honey Glow even more special is the fact Dunn-Edwards is donating 10% of all Honey Glow to HoneyLove, a non-profit organization whose mission it is to protect the honey bee.
