Trending Paint Colors for 2020

Trending paint colors for 2020

Is it time for you to update your room (or maybe your whole home) with some updated colors? Check out these great trending paint colors for 2020 to gather some inspiration for your newly refreshed room!

You’ll notice when looking at these paint colors, most of them are neutral tones. This is great if you’re looking to sell your home, or if you’re looking to be able to consistently change out your decor and match nearly anything to it. Neutral tones make for fantastic wall colors, and generally mean you won’t find yourself wanting to repaint every year.

Light Pink/Blush

You’ll notice that this color, or a variation of it, was also trending during 2019. This year’s trend is a little bit lighter than the saturated blush of 2019, but this allows for more to match to it, and more light to enter the space. Try pairing a blush wall color with deep greens (or even just greenery like a monstera) for a slightly tropical feel, or with other dark tones like navy blue for a crisp, chic edge.

Creamy White

A creamy white, also called “alabaster” (Sherwin Williams), almond, linen, or a variety of other names is a slightly taupe-toned white. It’s not quite beige, and it’s not quite off-white, nor is it as yellow as ivory. This creamy white tone is a great inviting tone that can bring brightness and warmth to your space. This tone can easily be paired with any other color.

Light Blue

Much like the light pink, this soothing blue tone can make for a perfect calming office, bedroom, mudroom, or anywhere else. Pair it with bold, dark colors for a crisp, chic edge (like the pink!) or with whites for an airy, light feel. This particular blue tone has a little bit of a greenish tint to it, so make sure to explore all your options before you commit to one tone.

Oxford Grey

Is Oxford Grey the perfect mix of grey and blue? It might be! This great color is incredibly versatile, though you may not want to use it if you have a small space you’re trying to look bigger. Pair with white or black, and use accent colors to bring out the saturation of this hue.

Greenish Grey

Also known as “blue echo” (Benjamin Moore), or “Peacock Plume” (Sherwin Williams), this green is a great color that isn’t too overwhelming. Since it’s dark, you may want to avoid using it in areas where there is low lighting to avoid the space looking too dim. However, you can pair it with bright, vibrant colors, or more subtle colors.

The best part about all of the above trendy colors is that they all work together! Mix and match your favorites and use them as you see fit. What’s your favorite color trending for 2020? Let us know in the comments!
