Dulux's Colour of the Year 2020
Dulux has introduced it's colour of the year for 2020, a soft, sagey green with hints of ash grey and sky blue, titled Tranquil Dawn.
'Dulux colour experts have chosen Tranquil Dawn, a colour inspired by the morning sky, to help give homes the human touch. This versatile shade of green can be used to create spaces for care or for play, to find meaning or for creativity.'
'Every year Dulux paint colour specialists at our Global Aesthetic Centre assemble a team of top international design experts to discuss the new global trends that will affect us all. We work on transforming these insights into one key paint colour trend 2020 that will have an impact on homes all over the world. Then we create four beautiful palettes around the Colour of the Year, with a mood and style to suit everyone.
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.'
'This versatile colour of 2020 seems to change according to the tones that it’s used with – it can work in different ways in a warm, neutral, soft or bright palette. Tranquil Dawn sits somewhere between green, blue and grey – just like the fleeting beauty of a morning sky – making it the perfect 2020 colour trend.'
Personally, I love this soft, versatile colour as I think it will go with most interiors and isn't too harsh on the eye, and I love the thought-fullness behind it. It also harks home the images it conjures up of a fresh, bright sunrise and the environment, focusing our minds on environmentalism. I believe that it's really important for big companies at the moment to focus on this, and by having Dulux, one of the largest paint and wall specialists in the country name and produce a colour that has such deep ties to the environment as a concept, is amazing.
What do you think? Of the colour, of course, and of the reasoning behind it?
