THE COLOURS YOU'RE GOING TO SEE EVERYWHERE IN 2020
Talk to an interior designer and they will tell you that colour has the power to transform a room, whether it's a bold feature wall or an unexpected painted ceiling. However, choosing that perfect color can be quite tricky. To help the process here's some hints from some top designers and color experts.
What colors will dominate homes in 2020? Here are the top colours you will see in homes in the year ahead.
"Pastels are still hugely popular, but I think we’re gravitating towards pastels with added warmth and earthy undertones. For overall colour palettes, we’re using a mix of both spring and autumnal colours." — Young Huh of Young Huh Interiors
“Monochromatic does not have to be pale. Colours like Cobalt Blue, Kelly Green, or even Aubergine can evoke monochromatic in a daring way, that’s full of personality and elegance.” — Jonathan Rachman of Decorist
"My new colour crush is a dusty teal. It is actually an amazing neutral that pairs well with so many colours: camel, rust, navy, peach and pale woods, like white oak and birch. Plus, I love colours that are deep and calming at the same time." — Amy Sklar of Amy Sklar Design
"When it comes to paint colours at Clare, we believe in timeless over trendy. We think people will always prefer more timeless neutrals. But when it comes to colours that have been unexpectedly popular, we’re definitely seeing a trend toward rich, moody hues. Current Mood is the number-two most visited color on our website and gets a ton of love on Instagram. It’s also a top five best-selling colour and outside of this rich green shade, we’re seeing more of an interest in deeper, moodier colours." — Nicole Gibbons of Clare
"In 2020, we're going to see a shift away from the cool colour palette, that defined the last decade, towards warmer, more organic tones. Warm neutrals and tones, in places of cool grays and blues, will be much more popular for colours this coming year." — Cheryl Eisen of Interior Marketing Group
BLACK AND WHITE
“High-contrast black and white is such a dynamic duo. While versatile, I prefer a bold pattern, like Art Deco ziggurat tile, for a little drama. The emotional response is immediate and the look remains timeless.” — Laura Umansky of Laura U Interior Design
BLUE, GREEN, AND GRAY
"We are embracing rich, saturated blue, green, and gray colours that change based on the time of day and light in the room. They immediately create a mysterious, sexy, and interesting space." — Kristen Peña of K Interiors
“Say goodbye to the cool tones that have ruled for so many years. Shades of chocolate brown, wine, olive green, and yellow ochre are all taking over in homes. We love substituting these warm, natural colors for a neutral on the sofa or walls.” — Marika Meyer of Meyer Interiors
