2020 Design Predictions: Relaxing Colors Are Trending in the New Year

As you know, a new year means new trends and ideas for industries like fashion and beauty. The interior design world is no different, and one of the most ever-changing trends is color. Color is an important factor in the overall design of a room, and is actually one of the easiest elements to mix up! Here are the top 6 color trends for 2020 from Better Homes and Gardens - you’ll see a focus on relaxation and a return to nature. 


Rich Earth Tones

Perhaps as a pushback to the “smartphone revolution,” more and more people are making a conscientious effort to spend more time unplugged. It’s this “back to nature” ideology that is influencing our first 2020 color trend: rich earth tones. Think nature-inspired shades reminiscent of the changing seasons, such as warm browns and greens.

Soothing Pastels

Look for calming hues, such as pale pinks and blues, which add harmony to a space and help bring a sense of relaxation. These light colors can even be used as a neutral color in a more colorful palette.

Muted Colors

This year’s color trends center around the idea that less is more. That’s why jewel tones are being swapped out for muted colors, such as blush pink and slate blue. Again, in a world full of overstimulation, muted colors add serenity to your space.

A home office is the perfect place to incorporate muted colors, like the slate blue walls in the Bayshore II by Homes by WestBay. This adds a sense of calm to your work-at-home days!


Moody Blues

Moody blues, such as the Pantone Color of the Year, Classic Blue, are reminiscent of the natural world, like a stormy sea or the midnight sky. Also trending, navy blue was named the world’s most relaxing color

Don’t think you have to paint to incorporate our 2020 color trends! The Bayview by Beazer Homes incorporates moody blues in easy-to-change ways, like throw pillows, drapery, and artwork. 


Warmed Up Neutrals

Consider adding neutral colors with red or orange undertones to them, instead of cool blue undertones. Think tans and beiges, especially in rooms with plenty of natural sunlight. Warm undertones will balance the cooling effect of natural daylight.
