As we enter a new decade 2020, it's a fresh start, like the dawn of a new day.
Inspired by the colours of day break, Dulux has announced Tranquil Dawn as its Colour of the Year for 2020.
Chosen by a panel of experts the colour exudes calmness and beautifully adapts itself depending on its surroundings and the scheme it's paired with due to its grey, green and blue hues.
Brinton’s grey carpets complement it perfectly to create a serene space where you can leave the hustle and bustle of the outside world at the front door. Sit back, relax, kick off your shoes and enjoy the calmness. Brintons Bell Twist, Moonstone, works as a lovely neutral in any room in the home. Add accents of earthy, powdered greens and cool mint tones to create a light, airy and tranquil scheme in which to relax.
Experiment with natural texture by adding house plants alongside the green hues, which will bring a sense of nature and the outside into the space.
Combining and layering subtle textures in grey tones create beautiful, understated and sophisticated schemes. Choose Brinton’s Perpetual Textures, Layered Herringbone to add a subtle pattern to a scheme or pair it with rich textures like velvet, to add a touch of luxury.
Dulux’s ‘colour of the year’ is decided by an expert panel of colour designers, design specialists, trend forecasters, architects and editors from around the world who join together to discuss what we increasingly need from the spaces around us.
Capturing a universal theme, they suggest a colour that they believe embodies the mood of the moment and will be popular in the year ahead.
