Reinvent your space for everyday living with neutral décor ideas from Dulux

The way we use our spaces is ever-changing, with more of us seeking the right balance between work, play and rest. Embrace a more flexible space with neutrals from the Colour of the Year 2019 palette. This range of colours is designed for dwellers who seek a space to recharge and re-boot away from the frantic outside world. With a little inspiration, we’re here to help you create a home that inspires you to think clearly and calmly.

A home office to inspire with Spiced Honey 

Get one step ahead of the colour curve by using 2019’s hottest hue in your home: Spiced Honey. This is a rich, warm shade that works perfectly with this season’s new neutrals. 


The look

Searching for neutral home décor ideas? Create a smart space for home working, a sophisticated corner for prospective clients, or a professional backdrop to those last-minute video conferences.

The rich, peppery tone of Spiced Honey makes for a stimulating background, perfect for enhancing productivity. Paint a thick stripe in Leather Case across the top two-thirds of the room. Its deep tone is bold and thought-provoking for a creatively inspiring room. Use an off-white like Feather Pillow for the top-third of the room. It’s a bright contrast that works with the horizontal line to make the room bigger and airier – a great place for coming up with fresh ideas.

A cosy living room or bedroom with Spiced Honey


Bring the Colour of the Year 2019 to life with these takes on the trend

Border lines

Add understated elegance to your bedroom by topping Soft Stone walls with a ceiling height border in rich Spiced Honey. Natural wooden flooring pairs perfectly with the palette and ensures the look is as functional as it is fun. Meanwhile, a retro side table and an oval-shaped mirror make for simple but stylish accessories. Complete the effect with crisp white bed linen and a smattering of cosy cushions in warm neutrals.

Earn your stripes 

Looking for neutral living room inspiration? Use Spiced Honey on the living room walls for a chic look. Accentuate the sumptuousness of Spiced Honey walls – and keep the look modern – by adding horizontal stripes around the top in the subdued tones of Just Walnut and Soft Stone. Furnish with comfortable, contemporary pieces for the warmest of welcomes, and sharpen the scheme with structural light fittings.

Expert know-how

Colour-blocking with a small area of Spiced Honey creates a big impact on a chimney breast. Pair with off-white walls and layers of smart pale, grey and black accessories, together with hints of pink to soften the look.” – Marianne Shillingford.


Using Spiced Honey in your home? Decorate this look with inspiring objects and modern art that make you smile – an eclectic look that brings the whole room together. Combine with dusky pink and cream, then layer with copper and soft grey accents, wooden accessories and sumptuous textured furnishings for a touch of hotel chic with real-home warmth.

Here are our top tips for accessorising this warm neutral interior design idea:

1. When it comes to soft furnishings, complementary shades and contrasting textures add interest and depth.


2. For balance, sleek, minimalist touches like a statement clock keep neutrals modern.


3. Natural accents, like wood or stone, feel laid-back but luxurious.


4. A leather armchair, like this vintage-look Hackney armchair from DFS, is just the thing to bring the scheme together.


A quiet corner to reflect with gentle, cloudy whites

In a busy world where we’re bombarded by deadlines and demands, we need a special place to relax. Carve out a space for ‘you time’ with these neutral living room décor ideas. 

Use soft neutrals like Feather Pillow for a soothing background that’ll let you switch off – and drift off.

Complement with Waxed Wood on an alternate wall. This muted taupe has a natural, woody hue. Harness the warmth of this earthy shade with pink accents in chic, decorative ornaments.

Style your room with a minimalistic approach – it’s on-trend and geared perfectly for creating clear, open spaces for reflection. Decorate sparingly with tactile furnishings for a comfortable and quiet escape from the hustle and bustle.

Zone open-plan living with bold colours

Restore balance at home and zone with bold colours for a practical and beautiful space that serves all your needs.

Warm up open-plan living with earthy neutrals like dusky Angora Blanket. Its pale, sandy hue sets a balmy backdrop – accentuate with natural, wooden furnishings.

Get creative and mix and match with inviting pastels like Soft Stone. Paint soft colours in blocks to carve out special corners for you to finally finish that great read. Paint the top of your walls in intensely rich Finest Burgundy to give the whole look a graphic edge.

For a cosy feel, use Leather Case in your living room. Its smooth tone works well when paired with textured soft furnishings like knitted grey blankets and velvety cushions. A luxurious look that’s always welcoming.
