2020 Color Trends

Whether you want to light up your design space or completely reinvent your style, celebrate the new decade with these fresh ideas and exciting paint trends!

Innovation meets industrialization

Welcome 2020 with a space that embraces advanced technological workspaces while preserving the cultural richness of the industrial past. Create an innovative room or office with freshly white-painted walls, cabinets and trim, giving you a modern yet neutral base to let your creativity fly.

Accent a wall with a geometric 3-D design using vibrant paint colors of various tones for a multi-dimensional effect. Add nostalgic, old-world charm with rich red brick and dark brown woodsy stains for the industrial and atelier feel, or decorate ceilings and walls with mixed metals and visible support beams for a harmonized blend of the old and new eras. The combination of vintage and contemporary accents compliment each other nicely and can give your space a timeless elegance.

Make it selfie-ready

The phenomenon of taking photos, selfies and posting photos online leads us well into the next decade. Promote commercial spaces such as hotel lobbies and restaurants with photo-ready areas – a photo op spot will surely satisfy social media fans. You can create warm and moody walls by using colors such as beige, soft mauves and subtle grays to provide neutral backgrounds for camera subjects. Add splashes of colorful design and trim with vibrant magentas or violets to create interesting focal points and background accents.

Let the outdoors in

You can capture the purity and serenity of nature by incorporating its organic colors to make your design space an extension of the outdoors. Let the sun fill a room by using yellow paint colors and white trim for a warm, calming sensation.

Include rich greens and soft browns to imitate the natural land and create a perfect color space for greenhouses and sunrooms. Try varying shades of brown or blue paint to mirror the sandy beaches and tidal fronts outside, too. You can also add a water feature, like a wall fountain that trickles water down bedrock, for a unique focal point that emphasizes the natural atmosphere of the room.
