Named as Dulux’s Colour of the Year for 2020, Tranquil Dawn is a peaceful, hazy green shade chosen by trend experts for its calming benefits. When it comes to using it in your home, this paint is easy to team with both punchier jewel tones and subtler colours. If you’re head over heels for this calming colour, check out some of our other ideas to incorporate Tranquil Dawn into your home

Graham & Brown’s colour pick for the coming year is a rich bottle-green. While it may make for a far bolder wall paint than Tranquil Dawn, it shares its invigorating and freshening take on the home décor.
