Hari Raya has always been a festivity that brings us happiness. It is an occasion where Muslims celebrate their success in resisting various temptations during the month of Ramadan. Also, this year’s celebration is special as Malaysians have stood together to practice social distancing, united in our efforts by staying at home.
As we continue to practice this, we understand that there is a possibility that we are unable to continue the usual Hari Raya traditions of open houses and family gatherings. However, as we prepare to celebrate Hari Raya differently, it doesn’t mean we have to forego the other traditions such as redecorating our homes. You might be surprised at how a newly painted feature wall will help brighten up the festive mood. After all, Raya has and will always be a colourful affair.
AkzoNobel, the leading paints and coatings company understands the importance of colours and Hari Raya together. And since the majority of the celebrations are spent by mingling in the living rooms, we’ll be sharing the creative colour palettes that combine well with Tranquil Dawn, AkzoNobel’s Color of the Year 2020, to add a touch of tranquillity to that area.
AkzoNobel’s Color of the Year 2020, Tranquil Dawn, also known as Grey Jeans, is a cool-tone shade of green and is inspired by the colour of the morning sky – a suitable colour choice to add sparks to the celebrations.
This room-set features a combination of rich colours, which in turn creates an intense mood to your living room. Tranquil Dawn, takes on a calming role in this setting, acting as a contrast to the vibrant colours in the room.
Adding in the decorative furniture of floral motifs and hand-crafted wicker, this room offers an inspiring and cosy atmosphere for you to enjoy an afternoon cup of tea with your family during the first day of Hari Raya.
