Now in its 17th year, Dulux’s Colour of the Year excites designers, decorators, and homeowners alike every year. The Colour of the Year for 2020 has finally been announced with a breath of fresh air. Following last year’s bright and fun ‘Living Coral’, this year’s top pick brings a slightly fresher hue to the forefront of the design world with ‘Tranquil Dawn’.
This soft, neutral shade would be perfect for any room in the home, but how could you incorporate it in your new bespoke kitchen?
‘Tranquil Dawn’ will breath a calming freshness into any room, with its soft green undertone emitting a relaxing, trouble-free aura. This ability to instil calmness could be especially effective in the heart of your home – the kitchen. Greens have been found to help blur the lines between the inside and out, helping to create a natural and soothing environment that humans naturally relate to.
The neutrality of the shade also means that it can be paired beautifully with a whole range of colours. From warm palettes of reds and oranges to pastels blues and pinks, ‘Tranquil Dawn’ is a truly versatile pick which can be incorporated into any taste.
With an immense number of paint formulas and finishes, this new top pick can also be used to enhance almost any part of your kitchen. Try a soft backsplash that either contrasts with your kitchen, or helps it blend seamlessly. Alternatively, if you’re feeling more adventurous, why not paint your cupboards? Or, maybe just half your cabinets, or your kitchen island.
The possibilities are truly endless with this beautiful soft green hue. And incorporating ‘Tranquil Dawn’ – or any other colour for that matter – couldn’t be easier with Designer Kitchen Direct. We hand paint our cabinets and fittings in any colour to suit your style and home perfectly, giving beautiful bespoke results, every time.
