2020 colors of the year include Pantone® Classic Blue, which exudes a calmness to counteract our fast-paced lives. Along the same theme, Sherwin-Williams® chose Naval, a nurturing navy blue. PPG’s pick is Chinese Porcelain, a rich blue that encourages us to be mindful and serene.

Another calming hue, Benjamin Moore® First Light, is a soft, rosy pink that focuses on life’s most essential needs, like comfort, security and optimism. And Behr® brings the outdoors in with its choice, Back to Nature, a shade of green reminiscent of meadows.

Making Your Home Uniquely You

This year’s on-trend colors are saturating cafés and homes, clothing and upholstery. By pairing soft neutrals with pops of bolder colors, you can create your own personalized look.

New York designer Rebecca Atwood, known for her best-selling book, Living with Pattern: Color, Texture and Print at Home, believes in using colors in the home to create an “environment that makes us feel good.”

Get Creative

If you have a lot of neutrals in your home, try adding bold accent colors with throw pillows, tableware or artwork in complementary hues. Etsy’s Chartreuse is a vibrant shade that’s a cross between green and yellow. Or pair Valspar® Bombay Pink with gold accents like area rugs or window shades for a really elegant look.

Whether they’re brave and bold or soft and subtle, the colors of 2020 put us in the right mindset to take on the year.
