2020 Color Forecast
Well we’re halfway through 2019 (already?), and we stand by the color trends we sent earlier this year. On the other hand, some of us are ready to see what 2020 will bring. Sure we may be jumping the gun a bit here, but companies like Sherwin-Williams have already released color forecasts for next year, so… This month’s blog post is on next year’s colors.
Sherwin-Williams released a list of 45 colors, mixed into five comprehensive color palettes. Like always, there are some we agree with and some we don’t. Here are a few of our favorites from that list:
“RIPE OLIVE SW 6209”
Here we have a deep and moody green. At a time when we usually see green used as an accent, bright and somewhat muted, we are overjoyed to see a return to this majestic shade. We work a lot with wood, and this green compliments most wood finishes wonderfully.
“BREATHLESS SW 6022”
This is a color we’re seeing a lot, not just in interiors but everywhere. There’s something comforting about this soft pink hue and we’re not sure how to word it. It’s just a feeling. Nothing about it says “Traditional,” and everything says “Cool,” and it reminds us of cherry blossoms. In terms of complimentary colors, it goes well with any sort of neutral off-white or grey.
“GAMBOL GOLD SW 6690”
Now this one might just be personal preference. A little too bold for full spaces, we would reserve this for accents only, but boy does it do the job. If you’re in need of a little brightness to balance out a neutral paint or if your living room is just feeling a little empty, try adding this bright color in the form of an end table or lighting fixture.
“GRANITE PEAK SW 6250”
We love colors that hover in the (literally) grey area in between your primaries, colors that make you think, “Wait, is that even blue?”. What we love most is the versatility. Any space, any accent, any time, colors like this one just seem to fit nicely.
So that’s what Sherwin-Williams thinks 2020 is going to look like. What do you think?
