The new year is here, and it’s time to look at color trends for 2020. Gone are the ubiquitous gray walls of the past. Say bye-bye to cold color palettes. Here are the Top Color Trends of 2020:
Earthy, Warm Tones
Think tones of clay and terracotta, as well as warm pastel tones. Clay and terracotta shades add character and depth to a room. Soft pinks are warm, calming and quietly sophisticated. These colors complement many different looks and support deeper jewel-toned accents.
Blue is the New Gray
Bye-bye gray. Moody blues are in. From misty tones to deep, rich blues, there is a wide range of colors that can be used everywhere from walls to kitchen cabinets and make a statement while being neutral at the same time. The Pantone Color of the Year is Classic Blue. We can see this color pop in a powder room or on a kitchen island. How would you use it?
Beyond paint, materials will play a big role in the overall palette of your home. Dark-toned wood is still a classy choice for flooring. Leather couches and chairs add warmth and tactile depth to a room. Similarly, velvet brings a cozy, high-end look to upholstered furniture and home accents. Stone continues to be a top choice for countertops. A great alternative to pricey stone products that homeowners love is Wilsonart Laminate countertops.
Patterns in fabrics, wall coverings, tile work, decor, and artwork can make a big difference in the feel of your home. Look for scalloped edges in 2020. Botanical and large floral prints are another trend that makes a big impact on accent walls or decorative tile.
