If anything is clear in 2020, it’s that neutral interiors are phasing out and bright, bold colors are entering homes everywhere. Perhaps we’ve grown tired of beige and taupe during the many days surrounded by our own walls, and color re-introduces some much needed, positive excitement. Or maybe we’re just ready to have fun.
Popular Paint Colors
Blues and greens are at the top of the up-and-coming list, with dark emerald or olive and sapphire hues being highlighted by Seminole Paint and Décor Center’s Alison Rosebrough. Colors like Benjamin Moore’s Lafayette Green and Blue Danube are taking center stage this year. Their rich tones are almost regal and are ultimately classic, eye-grabbing statements.
Try Painting a Small Space
If these highly saturated shades intimidate you, don’t worry. They’re perfect for accenting a neutral palette. Erica Hendrix of Erica Lea Design Studios in Nixa notes that many people are pushing bright colors and bold patterns in places like powder rooms and laundry rooms—small spaces that can use some fun and don’t feel like as much of a risk. Kitchen islands and ceilings—yes, the room’s fifth wall—can also be a great place to make a statement with color.
