The new colour of the year for 2020 has been revealed and it’s bringing us hope and optimism for brighter and more natural interiors. With previous years showing us darker tones, we are now moving towards a lighter shade giving us a more refreshing look for the year ahead.
So, what is this new Dulux Colour? It is appropriately named Tranquil Dawn due to its soft, calming tones that bring serenity and wellbeing to its surroundings. Inspired by the dawn horizon, Tranquil Dawn is a delicate shade that contains hints of green, grey and blue. This gives it a varied effect depending on what other colours it is paired with making it very versatile. It seems to subtly shift its tones depending on the different shades it is paired with. Green is becoming more popular in decorating and this shade provides the perfect balance to warmer shades.

Tranquil Green works in almost every setting and alongside many different colours from calm neutral tones to bold vibrant colours and warmer shades. When used as a sandy tone, it creates a relaxed and nurturing space. Some elements to boost this feel in your home would be comforting fabrics, cushions and throws, warm woods and indoor plants which is also a big up incoming trend for interiors this year. Paring darker more rich tones like burgundy and forest green with Tranquil Dawn defuses the colours creating a warm calming environment, perfect for the cooler cosier months ahead. These are the perfect colours for creative thinking especially when paired with velvets, floral prints and vintage furniture.
