Tranquil Dawn Dulux Color Of the Year 2020

440 440 Velvet

Upon the closing of this September’s Maison et Objet international trade fair that is held in Paris, one thing is very clear. Pastel green (including Celedon and mint green) are on a high trending streak. As predicted, green is the new “it” color. The announcing of Tranquil Dawn, as the Dulux color the year for 2020 merely confirms that.

Tranquil Dawn is a cool toned green that is both calming and comforting. Its name keeps on reminding me that a new decade is about to dawn. And a dawn bears always a hope for a fresh, new, less disconnected start. Hence, I don’t think that that is a simple coincidence.

Now this tranquil green can easily be paired with neutral pastels or deep rich warm tones for an empowering outcome. It’s soft, but not indifferent and a color that I would definitely consider using in a kitchen, a bedroom or a vanity room.

To be honest, it’s not the kind of color I would opt for the walls of my living room. But having said that though, adding on home decor in that hue would work nicely with just about any setting.

So what do you say if we dive in this color’s tranquility with this moodboard?

Lastly, I think Tranquil Dawn would also make a fabulous color for the bedroom of a child of any age! Depending on the decor and accessories used, you could use this color without a second thought. It can look great in a nursery, but with some black decor it can look edgy and more punchy to suit a teenager’s room too.
