Dulux Colour of the Year 2020: Tranquil Dawn

Posted on the 16/09/2019 by Karndean Designflooring

Dulux is back with its highly anticipated and all-new Colour of the Year for 2020; Tranquil Dawn, a rich and beautiful pastel green shade that we expect to make any interior pop. 

Speaking of their 2020 hero colour, Dulux tells us it 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. We all know that feeling, don’t you agree? 

Interestingly, the paint specialist reports the new hue centres around the desire to create more opportunities to experience ‘A Human Touch’ in our lives and in our homes. They also claim when paired with neutral pastels and rich jewels it becomes incredibly powerful at achieving spaces that encourage making better human connections.

After much consideration, we have to agree the hazy pale green tones of Tranquil Dawn are indeed calming and comforting. We’d go as far as saying we can see this colour accommodating a variety of different styles and spaces. What do you think? When it comes to choosing the perfect floor to match the Colour of the Year, we know it can be tricky as there are so many designs to choose from. To help you get started, our product designers have narrowed down the search to reveal our top five. 

Drum roll, please. Our top five flooring choices to match Tranquil Dawn are as follows; Blush Oak, Fabrica, Providence, Blond Oak Parquet and Mountain Oak. With many knots, grains and textures, these flooring options will transform your space and showcase the beauty within the pastel green colour scheme.

The final decision on how to lay your floor is completely up to you. However, opting for laying patterns such as herringbone or basket weave will add interest and character. Discover more about laying patterns here.
