2020 Home Color Trends

September 11, 2020

One of the easiest ways to make a new house feel like home is by choosing a color palette you love—but if you’re struggling for inspiration, the color trends for 2020 can help. Besides adding a trendy look and feel to your custom home, color has a noticeable and proven impact on the mood and energy in your space. And, with people spending more time in their homes than ever before, this year’s popular colors can evoke feelings of calmness, stability and warmth. 

Read on to see how the biggest brands in paint have taken the trends in stride and designated their top colors of the year. 

Balanced blues 

Whether it’s a body of water or the expansive Texas sky, the color blue has long been associated with tranquility and dependability. It’s a versatile color that can be paired with many different styles and complementary hues. 

Pantone’s Classic Blue: Instilling calm, confidence, and connection, this enduring blue hue highlights our desire for a dependable and stable foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era.

Sherwin Williams’ Finian Blue: Seafaring shades like Finian Blue lend interiors the feel of a restorative getaway. 

New neutrals 

Grey may have been the dominant neutral for the past few years, but a new decade brings new ideas to interiors. Brands are recognizing the desire for a connection to nature, and are introducing colors that nod to the great outdoors—or just mesh really well with it. 

Behr’s Back to Nature: As nature’s favorite color, Back to Nature is a restorative and revitalizing green hue that engages the senses and pairs well with other colors both inside and outside your home.

Valspar’s Winter Calm: The lavender hibernating in that cozy grey snuggles up beautifully with the toasty organic tones in wood and leather and gives creamy textiles and architectural features a subtle backdrop.

Peaceful pinks

Often considered feminine and delicate, your brain also correlates the color pink with calmness and optimism. Brands selected muted, light shades of pink that can be used as a unique starting point for any space in a home.  

Sherwin Williams’ Romance: Romance was inspired by our desire to bring elegance and luxury into the home while maintaining serene balance.

Benjamin Moore’s First Light: A refreshing alternative to white or beige, First Light is a soft, airy pink that flatters any space and plays well with other colors. 

Whether you’re drawn to powerful blues, nature-inspired neutrals or the new age of pink, our award-winning interior designers can help you choose the flooring, cabinetry, fixtures and more that best complement your paint choices.
