A new day
Tranquil Dawn heralds a new year of colour excellence for Dulux
Dulux, manufactured by global paint and coatings leader, AkzoNobel, has zeroed in on a colour that encapsulates the spirit of 2020.
Tranquil Dawn, a delicate shade between green, blue and grey, makes up part of an annual trend forecast known as Colour Futures – compiled by Dulux colour specialists at the AkzoNobel Global Aesthetic Centre in the Netherlands. The 2020 report is the culmination of extensive research by global experts and is designed to represent the essence of what makes us human as a new decade arrives.
“Tranquil Dawn perfectly captures the 2020 mood of what makes us human,” explains Nathalie Sweeney, Marketing Director Sub Sahara Africa for Dulux – which leads the annual trend research within this region. “It’s reminiscent of the colours of the morning sky and our desire to treasure our most human qualities, which we’ll need as we enter a new decade.”
For homes, the four supportive colour palettes each featuring Tranquil Dawn – The Care Palette, The Play Palette, The Meaning Palette and The Creativity Palette – allow homeowners to express themselves within the scope of this 2020 shade.
