The 2020 Dulux Colour of the Year sits somewhere between green, blue and grey – just like the morning sky – and can work in a variety of colour schemes. We’ve created four palettes around Tranquil Dawn that work beautifully in any room in the house – including the living room. From soft neutrals to rich, intense shades, read on to find out how to use Tranquil Dawn to create a living room that will stand the test of time.

Transforming your living room with Tranquil Dawn 

Create a sense of calm in your living room with the Dulux Colour of the Year 2020. To create a living room that will last and withstand wear and tear, opt for paint from our Easycare range. Our durable matt paint is wipeable and tough – perfect for busy family living rooms. 


Pair Tranquil Dawn with a sandy tone such as Dune Grass to create a relaxed and nurturing space. Using the paler colour lower down on the walls creates a lightness and brightness in your living room, while the darker tone used higher up adds extra warmth. Complement this colour scheme with neutral fabrics, natural woods and leafy houseplants.


Create a luxurious living room by contrasting Tranquil Dawn with warm and rich durable matt paint such as Easycare Dark Garnet. Use the burgundy hue to create a feature wall and add the calming quality of Tranquil Dawn on adjoining walls and alcoves. Add sumptuous velvets and metallic accents to create a living room that is elegant and atmospheric.


The combination of moody greys, soothing pastels and tranquil neutrals creates a relaxed and welcoming living room. Ballerina Dance and Damson Dusk contrast elegantly with one another, while Tranquil Dawn takes on a calming role and ties the scheme together. Add accessories in matching tones or add a bold pop of red for additional contrast.
