Pantone, the color management company, recently announced its pick for 2020 Color of the Year; most of the major paint companies also pick colors they think will dominate homes in the year ahead. As usual the selections are a mix, but there are some clear trends this time around, and the colors lean rather cool. Let’s see how these nine colors might work in your home.
Greens and blues are continuing their run as on-trend hues. But compared with the 2019 Colors of the Year, these colors are fresher and less moody. In fact, with a couple of exceptions, they convey a rather hopeful vibe.
It’s important to point out that you should always decorate with colors you love, regardless of what is considered trendy. As you can see here, there’s really no solid consensus on what is going to be the “it” color in 2020. So rather than feeling like you have to bring one of these hues into your home, think of this as a source for inspiration if you are looking for a change and you see something you like.
