Welcome Dulux’s Tranquil Dawn into your home
Every year Dulux colour specialists, together with design experts from all over the world, analyse global colour trends to select the colour that perfectly reflects the mood of the year. With an increasingly hectic and digital world, there is a desire to be more caring and to search for meaning. The Dulux Colour of the Year for 2020, Tranquil Dawn, has an air of calm and clarity that perfectly reflects this frame of mind.
Welcoming Tranquil Dawn into your home mimics the feeling of welcoming spring after winter. This beautiful shade of green was inspired by the morning sky and gives that human touch to homes of all shapes and forms. Tranquil Dawn’s beautiful versatility allows it to be paired with a number of colour schemes to create spaces for care, play, creativity and to find meaning. Let’s discover four stunning palettes around Tranquil Dawn.
Create a light and airy kitchen using a combination of calming paint colours in soft neutrals and pale pastels. Combining Tranquil Dawn with soft cream colours and Dulux’s Colour of the Year 2019, Spiced Honey, creates a relaxed and welcoming space. This laid back ambience will be complete with lush indoor plants and hand-thrown pottery pieces.
Tranquil Dawn is also perfect for energising a kid’s room when paired with vibrant colours. Create an upbeat loft bedroom with a bold and playful colour scheme that combines a sunny yellow and soft grey to create a graphic effect. Using the Colour of the Year 2020, Tranquil Dawn, on features such as chunky window borders gives definition to key features in the room. White-painted furniture, warm woods and unfussy natural textiles will complete the look perfectly.
Desire a low-key luxury bedroom? Combine awe-inspiring dark grey walls with elegant light grey doors and light up window recesses with Tranquil Dawn to create a truly timeless colour scheme. These soothing paint colours create a moodily beautiful bedroom. Minimalist furniture, tactile throws and laidback linens will finish this simple and serene style and transform your bedroom.
Spice up your living room by combining Tranquil Dawn with a warm colour scheme. Rich and intense tones like burgundy and forest green can be paired with paler shades like Tranquil Dawn, on adjoining walls and window alcoves, to give off a gentle calming quality. These colours complement each other to create a space for the curious and creative minds. Pair these tones with sumptuous velvets, floral prints and quirky vintage pieces to complete this atmospheric and cosy space.
