Coatings manufacturer Dunn-Edwards (Los Angeles) released its 2019 Color of the Year, which it says makes a bold statement that aims at providing a genuine connection. The hue—Spice of Life—is described as a dark, browned, fire-brick red with orange undertones.

“It’s a celebration of what makes life interesting and exciting. Spice of Life makes a bold statement with a melding of diverse and global cultural influences.”

McLean said that Dunn-Edwards’ research showed that in this time of always-connectedness via technology, people are craving “real” connections.

“These feelings are reflected in a movement away from cooler hues toward more earth-inspired color reminiscent of Naturalist motifs, Bohemian moods, the great American West and an anticipation of exploring the red planet, Mars,” McLean said. “These organic, autumnal and life-affirming hues, such as Spice of Life, are strong, authentic and full of humanity.”

McLean adds that the hue can be an anchor for various styles. For modern or contemporary interiors, the company suggests pairing it with white, gray and black; for traditional, pair with browns, creams and dark blue. It also works well with other autumnal tones such as clay, sunny yellow and deep moss green.

The name, according to the company, comes from the William Cowper poem “The Task,” which says, “Variety’s the very spice of life, That gives it all its flavor.”
