Dulux Colour of The Year Tranquil Dawn
The Dulux Colour of the Year 2020 has been unveiled as Tranquil Dawn; a beautiful soft green somewhere between a grey and a green.
The colour inspired theme for 2020 is re-connection. In a busy modern world where technology dominates, Dulux wanted a colour with ‘a human touch’.
Dulux say this newly created 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’.
What determines the Colour of the Year?
The colour is chosen by a panel of experts, made up of colour designers, trend forecasters, architects and editors from around the world. To determine the chosen colour they look at emerging global trends and insights, defining how these impact the way we live.
This serene soft green is a fresh hue, and unlike anything else on the market. It’s the ideal neutral to team with on-trend deep rich 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.
The Colour of the Year 2020 palettes
The Colour of the Year has four supporting trend palettes. A mix of complimentary greens and dark charcoal accents, to show how Tranquil Dawn can be best used in our homes.
This rich vibrant colour is the perfect contrast to the subtlety of tranquil dawn. They set each other off perfectly.
Soft pinks are the perfect compliment to this green tone, a soft contrast to one another and a great way to update any Millennial pink that you might have in the home for a freshen up.
Tranquil Dawn is the perfect addition to the modern neutral colour palette, mixing well with oatmeal, creams and greys.
