What better way to start the new year than with a fresh coat of paint? Painting is one of the easiest and quickest ways to totally transform a room. Colour is also a great way to add some personality and really express yourself. If you’re looking for an easy and inexpensive way to spruce up your home, check out these interior paint trends for 2020.
1. New Neutrals
When we look at major paint companies and the colours they’re focusing on, it’s clear to see they’re keeping things classic yet fresh this year. One big trend we’re seeing in 2020 is a fresh take on new neutrals. Be on the lookout for muted pinks, creamy whites and soft greys. A key example is Benjamin Moore’s colour of the year, First Light — a refreshing and uplifting pink. Softer than the millennial pink we saw take charge a few years ago, this pink is more of a whisper. Use it as a backdrop in any room to add a hint of fun to otherwise neutral walls.
2. Green with Everything
Green is big for 2020 and not just for paint. Shades of green throughout the home can be seen gracing the covers of magazines and trend reports this year. Surprisingly versatile, green can blend in as a backdrop or stand out and make a dramatic statement. To really capture this trend, try using several shades of green together in one room. A good place to start? The powder room as it’s small enough to try out a trend without making a huge commitment. Add an accent wall to your powder room to see how you feel about going green.
3. Classic Blue
We know classic blue has been picked as Pantone’s colour of the year. Whether you agree with 2020’s selection or not, there’s no arguing this colour is a classic for a reason. Blue is timeless and can work in any room, in any shade. Try it as an accent wall to bring a focal point and an eye to the future. Jewel tones, in general, will become more popular throughout 2020. Embrace the future with these colours that echo the past for a truly timeless look.
