Dulux Colour of the year 2020 

Dulux have chosen to go in a completely different direction to 2019’s year’s Spiced Honey as they opt for a calmer, more serene colour palette.

Tranquil Dawn consists of soft green hue’s, perfect for the new year and fresh beginnings! 

The inspiration for the colour is reconnection. In a busy world dominated by technology Dulux wanted a colour that could represent ‘a human touch’ – identified as the pale green shade of Tranquil Dawn.

Embodying the nation’s mood on the approach of a new decade Dulux say this purposeful shade ‘reflects a growing desire to understand what it is to be human, at a time when advances in technology are making us feel increasingly disconnected from each other’

‘A new decade heralds a new dawn and the hazy pale green tones of Tranquil Dawn are calming and comforting just when we need it most in our lives,’ says Marianne Shillingford, Creative Director, Dulux UK. ‘When paired with neutral pastels and rich jewels it becomes incredibly powerful at creating spaces that encourage making better human connections.’ 

This serene soft green is a fresh hue, ideal to awaken interiors for 2020. As demonstrated, it’s the ideal ‘grown-up’ pastel to team with on-trend saturated tones such as black and deep petrol blue. It also pairs perfectly with neutral oatmeal tones, dusky pinks and lilacs – all key colours throughout next year’s interiors trends.

If you’re looking to update your kitchen or bathroom using Tranquil Dawn, then why not pair it with our mosaic; Midi Metro Crackle Effect in Pistachio. The tile’s green hues perfectly complement the calming & muted tones of 2020’s colour of the year, creating an environment perfect for relaxing from the stress of day to day life.
