Every year, we see new colour trends making their way into the mainstream. If you’re ready to make a major change to your home interior this year, you must take a look at these top 2020 colour trends for home decor.
1. Darker Colours Will Be the New Neutrals
Over the years, we have seen whites, creams, and greys fall into the neutral territory which is a top choice for most homeowners. But this year, these colours will be joined by the darker charcoal, navy blue, sage green, and even black to add a touch of elegance.
2. Blush Pink Will Be a Top Favourite for Walls and Fabrics
Blush pink is a lovely, airy hue of pink that makes for refreshing alternative to white or beige. It can be used in a variety of spaces including living rooms, bedrooms, and even kitchens and bathrooms. It flows well with most colours and complements all kinds of furniture and accessories. Blush sofas and rugs can also add a bit of a soft and natural sophistication to your living rooms. The colour also looks great on upholstered bed headboards.
3. Champagne Will Be the Hottest Trend
If you think champagne is boring, you need to think again as it is going to be a big trend in 2020. You have seen various shades of cool greys slathered on walls and dominating the world of interior design for years. This year, champagne is really to make a big comeback. The earthy touch of champagne can make your room feel warmer and create a relaxing environment. You can pair it with bolder tones like navy or hunter green and use more natural wood for your furniture and cabinets for a very natural look. You can also play with metallic accessories in gold, copper, and bronze.
4. Peach, Aqua, and Mint Combo
This is a timeless palette that will be among the top favourites of interior designers in 2020. It can look great in living areas. You can paint the walls in peachy tones or use floral wallpaper in peach and mint. Add sofa chairs and tables with mint accents like cushions and ottomans. Use aqua to accessorize the room using centrepieces, vases, table runners etc.
5. Bold Monochromatic Rooms with Navy Blue
Navy blue is a regal shade that is becoming increasingly popular in the world of interior designing. This dark and rich colour is reminiscent of the night sky and looks stunning when paired with light and warmer tones such as champagne, giving any room a nice and cosy feel. You can use it to paint an entire room creating a bold look or use it to design a beautiful accent wall. Navy blue also goes exceptionally well with doors, windows, and cabinetry.
6. Burnt Orange Will Be Perfect for Accents
Burnt orange and rust shades can add an invigorating pop of colour to any space. However, you have to make sure to use them in moderation. Burnt orange walls make a huge impact, but they can go a long way toward making a space feel warm and inviting. They are a particularly good fit for formal dining spaces and living rooms. You can also use this shade for designing accent chairs or couches if you think painting entire walls with this colour will be too much for you.
7. Olive Green for the Kitchen and Living Area
This beautiful shade of green was a popular colour in 2019 and we will continue to see more of it in 2020 as well. The fresh and stylish colour will turn your home décor into a chic and appealing space. It takes us back to nature and adds a dash of serenity to any environment. It’s a great choice for walls, curtains, upholstered furniture, and fireplaces. It pairs perfectly well with warm earthy tones, wooden floors, and metallic accents.
8. Golden Yellow for Bedrooms
Yellow signifies happiness and optimism so you’ve got every reason to include this lively shade into your indoor spaces. Even though it can instantly brighten up any room, too much of it can result in an opposite effect. That’s why interior designers tend to use it sparingly and since golden yellow is a more subdued shade, it will be replacing the regular yellows this year. This colour works great in bedrooms and nurseries.
9. Cavern Clay Will Continue to Reign
One of the most popular colours from 2019, cavern clay, will remain a popular choice in 2020. From kitchens to dining areas to outdoor gardens and terraces, this is one colour you can never go wrong with. This eye-catching warm shade adds a nice pop of colour to your spaces and can be paired with a variety of neutrals such as bone whites, creams, beige, and greys. You can also contrast it with avocado green and denim blue. From bright tiles to wood grains, this sun-washed earthy tone can complement several materials.
10. A Touch of Sophistication with Dark Reds
Dark and rich reds, burgundy and caramels can add a bit of a boldness and sophistication to any room. These shades are best used as accent colours and can be easily paired with browns, grey, blues, beige, and green. They can be incorporated into your kitchen cabinetry and furniture as well. Similarly, red dining chairs, cushions, and sofas can really make your living and dining halls stand out.
So, there you have it. These were the top 2020 colour trends for home interior designing that will make it big this year. Whether you’re designing your dream house or revamping your current space, make sure you keep these colour choices in mind to give your houses a modern look.
