Getting to know the new trendy colors of 2020 for the interior design sector is like taking a journey through a fascinating kaleidoscope, into modernity and nostalgia, the past and present. Different shades of pastel mix harmoniously to create surrealist and futuristic effects, yet familiar and cozy.
This is the new fascinating trend launched by Pantone where metal and pastel colors are the leitmotiv for interior design 2020. We could safely say that this trend is indeed inspired by themes and initiatives in line with recent vast environmental awareness movements and that when it comes to interior design, nature plays a vital role in influencing the choice of trendy colors for 2020.
With nature being the source of inspiration, open spaces like the sky, the earth and the sea with warm and reassuring nuances, mirror the growing need of self-discovery and represent imaginary and perceived safe places that strengthen pleasant feelings and wellbeing.
Close attention is also payed to the element of steel on spaces with big windows such as ultra-modern buildings and their reflections of warm and cheering light, details which inspired Pantone to create a palette called Metropolis, dedicated to the urban style with metallic reflections and their delicate lavender nuances.
The palette called Trekking attracts nature lovers who like soft earth undertones and shades of mustard, like a walk on a mountain path.
Blue shades are among the protagonists as well this year, where one can navigate through thousands. The palette Prints Charming is dedicated to the romantics and the dreamers that love to be enchanted by fairy tale light blue tones, whereas the palette Beyond the pale is more on the classic side, emphasizing pastel colors all the way to shades of electric blue.
On this note Sherwin-Williams, one of the largest paint manufacturers in the US, consulted 265 interior designers before disclosing their own position regarding colors and trends for 2020. NO to the total white and NO to antique pink, this was their verdict and that’s indeed good news!
Color trend for decor
So, the new palettes follow the principles of the pursuit of serenity, in a way overthrowing the desire to be in the spotlight, rather replaced by the desire to feel emerged in and surrounded by nature, feeling connected in a harmonious way and as part of nature. The rediscovery of nature with its reassuring tones in the continuous changing of seasons does not leave much space for any gray or shades of gray.
On the contrary, shades of light blue and in particular navy blue are the new protagonists. A fairly high number of interior designers think that this is the most relaxing color of all, versatile and flexible, thanks to the possibility of being combined with luxury finishing as well as with a more casual style. There is a clear desire to convey daily lived spaces and give them a further daring, a “human touch” where color is transformed into a vivid experience.
Sherwin-Williams has given a thought to styles of young houses where the new generation want to express their desire to dare and to be free. Mirrored in the orange and yellow shades, complemented with violet and unfailing blue tones. Black is present too, this neutral color with its numerous shades and nuances, that can be used anywhere when combined to bold colors. Dark and bold colors: this is the new home concept among the younger generation where living with color is wonderful.
