Last week, paint retailing giant Dulux announced their Colour of the Year for 2020. To mark the new decade, the company chose a shade that sits somewhere between blue, green and grey named ‘Tranquil Dawn.’
From their press release:
As 2020 is the start of a new decade, it’s a fresh start. A new dawn. In an increasingly hectic and digital world, there is a desire for meaning and kindness. So, inspired by the colours of the morning sky, our colour experts have created an inspiring new shade, Tranquil Dawn.
Marianne Shillingford, the Creative Director of Dulux, told the press that Tranquil Dawn is a colour that “lies between the land and the sky on a misty morning”.
Meanwhile, Real Home Magazine called it “as soft and neutral as green can get”.
Using tranquil dawn in your home:
Tranquil Dawn is a versatile shade that can be used with a range of other colours.
Add soft and sandy tones for a touch of warmth, create a calm and tranquil space by pairing it with dusky shades or blend it with black and white for a bold look.
