Spiced Honey is Dulex’s Colour Of The Year 2019 and although I’m not a seasoned follower of ‘colour of the year’, Spiced Honey appealed to me because it’s a hue that most of us will have in our homes naturally.
Take my honey-coloured bee box for example (pictured). I picked it up in a local market in Scottburgh – a small town near Durban in South Africa.
It now sits proudly on one of my lounge sideboards and houses scented tea light candles – something that I use regularly to help create a cosy atmosphere once the evening comes.
Given that Spiced Honey is one of those colours that’s easy to incorporate into most interior themes, I’ve scoured the internet to have a good old nose at what's out there to bring you a selection of affordable ‘Spiced Honey’ homeware items that will see you keeping up with the Jones’ in 2019.
So let’s take a closer look…
1. First impressions count
And they start right at the front door! You’ll literally have stars in your eyes with this new Mini Stars Doormat from Cox and Cox.
The usual price is £20 but it’s in the sale now for just £15
2. Sweet scents
This Kitchen Tangerine and Ginger Candle from Laura Ashley costs £10 for a burn time of up to 25 hours and is currently on offer for £6.30.
It kicks off a sparkling citrus fragrance with juicy notes of sunny orange, hints of tangerine and zesty lemon.
It’s a great kitchen shelf addition and offers an uplifting fragrance that combines spicy, fresh ginger with calming mandarin blossom and jasmine blooms over a base of contemporary woods.
3. Hung up on you
Exclusive to Graham & Brown is this gorgeous Colour Block Geo Pink Wallpaper, featuring subtle shades of Spiced Honey (soft blush pinks and rose gold metallic lines).
Inspired by Italian design, it costs £50 a roll and would look just as great in your boudoir as it would in your downstairs cloakroom.
4. I’ll drink to that
Having a bit of a mini obsession with unique glasses, when I clocked my peepers on these Artland Coppertino DOF Tumblers, I knew they had to be included in my Spiced Honey homeware round-up.
They’re from I Want One Of Those, are dishwasher safe and cost £19.99 for two (previously £27.50), offering a saving of £7.51!
5. Snuggle up
There’s little better than snuggling up on the sofa when the wind is howling outside with a good throw to keep you cosy.
And I’ve found a cracker of a one for you….this Flannel Fleece Sherpa Thow from Amazon (available in a double or king size) costs just £12.95.
Put it on your bed or drape it over a tub chair, it’ll stylish wherever you decide you’ll need it.
6. Turn me on
This ‘Tommy’ Copper Desk Lamp from Habitat is an affordable £25 and has an adjustable arm and head, allowing light to be directed where it's most needed.
It’s exclusive to Habitat (having been designed in-house), and is also available in a variety of colours and sizes – but this ‘Spiced Honey’ hue is my fave!
7. Light my fire
This Water Hyacinth Round Log Basket is from Dunelm and will help store those logs to keep the fire burning as temperatures plummet.
Or you could use it to stash your collection of magazines/throws/bath bombs/whatever you can think of!
It costs £20 and measures 49cm (W) x 49cm (L) x 40cm (H).
8. Hop to it
As you might already be aware, we’ve got four bunnies in our household – yes, you could say that I’m a bit of a fan.
Lucky for me, ornaments of woodland creatures – including rabbits – are all the rage right now and I spotted this Bronze Hare Decoration in The Range for the fab price of £14.99.
On your mantelpiece, in your office or sitting proud in your dining room, wherever you put this little beauty it’s sure to offer a statement piece.
