Nothing says spring like a pretty pastel, and while soft lilacs, buttery yellows and pretty bluebell blues dominated the spring/summer fashion runways, mint is reigning supreme in the home.

Part of its enduring popularity is no doubt down to the fact that Tranquil Dawn, a soft, muted mint green, was Dulux’s 2020 Colour of the Year and a huge hit for the company, quickly becoming one of their best-selling Colour of the Year releases. This season, the hue has a bit more pep in its step, and while there are still plenty of pale and interesting pieces around, we’re getting bolder too, with more vibrant, saturated colours and interesting contrasts.
