Every year Dulux color specialists at our Global Aesthetic Center assemble a team of top international design experts to discuss the new global trends that will affect us all. We work on transforming these insights into one key 2020 color trend that will have an impact on homes all over the world. Then we create four beautiful palettes around the Colour of the Year, with a mood and style to suit everyone.

2020 is the start of a new decade. It’s a fresh start. A new dawn. In an increasingly hectic and digital world, there is a desire for meaning and kindness. So, inspired by the colors of the morning sky, our color experts have created an inspiring new shade, Tranquil Dawn.

This versatile color of 2020 seems to change according to the tones that it’s used with – it can work in different ways in a warm, neutral, soft or bright palette. Tranquil Dawn sits somewhere between green, blue and grey – just like the fleeting beauty of a morning sky – making it the perfect 2020 color trend.

Here we explore the ways that the color of 2020, Tranquil Dawn, can transform your home…
