Paint brand Dulux has selected a cool-tone shade of green as it's Colour of the Year for 2020, which is meant to offer an antidote to an "increasingly disconnected" modern society. Tranquil Dawn's green hue is also meant as a nod to elements of the natural landscape – Dulux's UK creative director, Marianne Shillingford, compares the colour to "the space between the land and sky".
"When paired with neutral pastels and rich jewels it becomes incredibly powerful at creating spaces that encourage making better human connections."
