With ‘Tranquil Dawn’ named as the Dulux Colour of the Year 2020 – and Neo Mint popping up everywhere – green hues look set to steal the show.
These soft new shades work beautifully with neutral pastels, bringing a calm, comforting feel to an interior. Rich jewel tones, including bottle green, are also joining the on-trend oxygenated shades, as we look to ‘balance’ our lifestyles through colour and design.
“Restful green shades are the new neutrals and they work so well with earthy, natural colours. By combining them with a wood or stone-effect floor, and lots of organic elements, you can create a harmonious space that’s calming and rejuvenating,” explains Harvey Maria founder, Mark Findlay.
“Designs like Parquet Sage and Lattice Pear Tree combine cream and soft green shades, so they subtly elevate a room, introducing pattern and colour underfoot. They can be used across large floor areas or bordered with a neutral wood effect to create a floor feature; this works particularly well in narrow hallways, around kitchen islands or in front of fireplaces,” continued Mark.
Other green-toned designs from Harvey Maria’s range include Little Bricks Apple Green – a short stave design, in a soft organic shade – ideal for creating parquet patterns and borders. For more ideas and inspiration, visit
