6 Interiors Inspired by Dulux’s 2020 Color of the Year, Tranquil Dawn

by Andrea Reynolds

You may or may not have heard, but Dulux, a UK-based paint brand, just released its 2020 Color of the Year. They chose Tranquil Dawn, describing this hue as a “hazy pale green tone” that serves as a visual respite from the “digital and hectic world” we live in.

In honor of this serene green, we rounded up a few installs that incorporate this shade in some way. You’ll find it in the paint, mosaic tiles, accessories, and yes, even the furniture. Get ready for the most soothing scroll yet.

A shade of Tranquil Dawn can be found in the classic subway tiles and back wall of this coffee shop.
