Dulux Colour of The Year 2020 – Tranquil Dawn
We look forward to the launch of the colour of the year each year from Dulux, and this year we are delighted to see that this gorgeous Tranquil Dawn has been chosen by their team.
This colour has been inspired by a desire for meaning and kindness in the increasingly hectic and digital world we live in; a beautiful starting point for a colour in the kitchen.
Tranquil Dawn is a versatile colour that can change according to the tones that it’s used with. With its tones of green, blue and grey, it is right on trend with the natural blue/ green colours that have been so popular in kitchens this year.
Dulux have released this kitchen image to demonstrate the versatility of Tranquil Dawn. In this kitchen it creates a cool, confident look with graphic black cabinets, contrasting white table tops and a vibrant yellow wall, against a calmer strip of Tranquil Dawn. This mix of colours allows Tranquil Dawn to take on an offbeat pastel effect, bringing a greater depth to the look. With colourful furniture and playful accessories, the mood is upbeat and sunny.
As well as the colour of the year, the experts at Dulux create four beautiful palettes around the Colour of the Year, with a mood and style to suit everyone. The four supporting trend palettes capture the essence of being human and show how Tranquil Dawn can be used to create spaces that enhance what we need and want in the year ahead: to seek Meaning, to Care, to Play, and to encourage Creativity.
We are looking forward to using these palettes to influence the colour combinations in our kitchens next year. They include combinations of green, blue with splashes of charcoal, pink or vivid reds.
Take a look at all four palettes below.
• THE MEANING PALETTE – A HOME FOR MEANING
Inspired by a cold winter’s dawn, this minimalist palette features icy green, warm cream and charcoal hues, creating a feeling of calm and contemplation.
• THE CREATIVITY PALETTE – A HOME FOR CREATIVITY
Inspired by a warm autumnal day, a sumptuous palette with maroon and tobacco hues, pale and moss greens provides a sumptuous space for self-expression and storytelling.

Inspired by a hazy spring horizon, this palette evokes a feeling of deep relaxation and peace thanks to a blend of earthy neutrals, muted greens, dusky pinks and pale blues.
• THE PLAY PALETTE – A HOME FOR PLAY
Inspired by the horizon of a hot summer morning, this palette features vivid reds, alongside baby blue, cream and pale green.
