On 10th September 2019 Dulux announced their Colour of the Year 2020 as Tranquil Dawn.
Experts selected the soft green hue to embody the nation’s mood on the approach to the new decade. It reflects a growing desire to understand what it is to be human at a time when advances in technology are making us feel increasingly disconnected from each other. Tranquil Dawn has been variously described as a grey green, a hazy pale green and also hailed as the ‘new neutral’. It is certainly a delicate fluid shade that sits somewhere between green, grey and blue. As with all colour - it is not just the colour itself but those colours that are used with it which can greatly alter its impact and feel in a space.
Selling your home is about accentuating the best features of the house and minimising the less appealing features. Ideally, you want a look that is fresh and welcoming – but not taste specific – so that you can appeal to the widest audience possible. Buyers with varying tastes need to feel like they could make the home their own if they purchased it – they need to be able to visualise themselves living there. As such you are selling a lifestyle – a glimpse of what their life would be like living in your home!
