Dunn-Edwards 2017 Color of the Year, Honey Glow (DE5354) is a warm, golden yellow with orange undertones that will make a bold statement in any space. Whether it’s applied to every wall or used strategically for pops of color, the cheerful spirit that radiates from Honey Glow will re-energize any room. Try it on an accent wall, paired with white or gray, and embellish with pillows, throws and other accessories in a Honey Glow color.

About Honey Glow

A symbolic marriage of joyfulness and intellect, Honey Glow evokes feelings of curiosity and a natural marveling at the world around us. It represents global and cultural trends toward warmth, the exploration of new territories and celebrating life filled with color.

The Cause Behind the Color

To honor the inspiration behind the 2017 Color of the Year, we’re donating 10% of all Honey Glow sales to HoneyLove, a non-profit organization that works to help bees survive the threat of extinction. As nature’s pollinators, bees contribute to the survival of all life on our planet – and we can think of no better way to celebrate life than to support these magnificent creatures.

The Process

Selecting the 2017 Color of the Year was no easy choice. Color expert Sara McLean spent months researching design palettes and digging into global color trends and influences. Her research culminated in the selection of a hue that is sure to warm and enliven your environment for years to come. To learn more about her process, watch the video below.
