The new season is upon us and boy does it bring some exciting new fashion, furniture, fabrics and colours! Dulux recently released their colour of the year and what a gorgeous colour it is!

“Dulux colour of the year is inspired by the soft, fluid tones of a morning sky.” Marianne Shillingford. Creative Director.


The colour of the year for 2020 is ‘Tranquil Dawn’.

A soft, fluid shade that helps provide calm and clarity. It sits somewhere between grey, blue and green. Perfect to use in its own right or as an accent to your new colour scheme.

A very versitile colour to be used in a number of schemes. I particularly love the use of 'Tranquil Dawn' with a mix of pastel colours and shades.

I can imagine myself walking into my tranquil dawn coloured living room, closing the door on the chaos of everyday life and unwinding in balanced harmony. Snuggle on the sofa with a deep knit throw and a cup of tea! Sounds Idilic! 

To spice it up a bit add a pop of autumnal colours (and a pumpkin or two!) to create a fresh yet cosy, inviting scheme. Perfect for the seasons ahead.

And thats only 2 variations of colour schemes!

This Colour can be paired with over 36 different colours. The options are endless. Perhaps 'Tranquil Dawn' is the new neutral!?

Paint effects are having a massive come back. More and more people are experimenting with ombre effects, borders, stripes and geometrics and this colour definitely lends itself to a mountain range wall mural! (For kids rooms or an adult bedroom!)
