It’s that time of year again when the Dulux Colour of the year is released. Once a year, Dulux will release the colour that they believe signifies the year that lies ahead. A soft colour that is incredibly versatile, Tranquil Dawn is a beautiful sage green that represents a soft spring morning.

Over the years of Colour of The Year, they have been strong colours that really make an impact within a room. Tranquil Dawn is soft versatile colour that will work in almost any colour palette during any season, but can also be used as an accent colour to really highlight a feature within a room.

At Foras we know how pairing beautiful tiles with particular paint colours can create an amazing room. We have some incredible tiles that we think would look incredible with Tranquil Dawn. Adding the Barfleur Grey Tumbled Limestone into a room with beautiful neutral colours like Tranquil Dawn to create a calming environment. Perfect for a sitting room or snug area, the Barfleur Grey is robust but still beautifully elegant.

Choosing a decorative tile is also a brilliant choice to go alongside this versatile colour. By keeping walls interesting yet neutral provides the perfect backdrop to allow the floor to take the center stage. The Bloomsbury Encaustic Tile is a beautiful choice to make a stylish statement in a room without it feeling over powering.

Additionally, the Retro Star Tile in Sage is another incredible choice to pair with the colour of the year, as the beautiful shade of green of the tile complements the sage green walls. By pairing similar colours together gives an overall calming feel to the room, but ensures there is dimension and different elements for the eyes to focus on.
