A new decade demands a new vibe, a reflection of how we live and feel as a society moving into 2020. A new year also brings a new color palette for interior design around the world. Whether it’s time for a total transformation or you’re just in need of a few new splashes of color, these are the new hues you’ll be seeing everywhere in 2020.
Overall, things seem to be lightening up. Design experts are using color as a way to express optimism for the future. The hues of 2020 are the soft and muted, light and airy with a nod to nature as well as a look ahead to a bright future filled with technological advancements. Pink is one of the hottest hues of the new decade. Soft, muted blushes will steal the show in home design. Benjamin Moore named First Light, a pastel pink, its color of the year. Here, pink is re-imagined as a new neutral, being featured in living and dining rooms. Stylists are pairing pink with natural beige and white and bursts of gold to keep the hue modern and sophisticated. To add a more masculine touch, use navy and deep green to balance the look.
Move Over Gray!
Benjamin Moore isn’t the only one betting on a pink in a new decade. Other paint experts are handpicking a dozen soft and earthy hues for 2020. Gray is taking second place for 2020.
Mix it up!
Sherwin Williams is seeing the future a bit more bold as mentioned in a previous blog, with their Naval, a rich blue, as its color of the year. The fabulous blue sets a fabulous backdrop for earthy greens and brown as well as bright white for contrast. Pairing it with the new pastel pink adds a surprise element to the mix.
Another color that global experts expect to see is Neo-mint, a futuristic color that blends nature and technology in a unique way for 2020. This hue for 2020 will brighten up any room especially the bedroom.
Whether you are looking to refresh a room or two with a new color scheme for your home or starting over, these new hues or 2020 will be an easy start for something new!
