Interior Color Trends of 2020

Don’t Be Afraid To Follow the Dark Color Trends

Neutral hues have traditionally been light colored. Of course, white is common in kitchens and bathrooms and for walls and ceilings. In past decades, even when interior designers wanted to go for a darker neutral, they typically choose light gray or shades of beige.

That won’t be the case in 2020. The start of the new decade will be all about being bold. In 2020, look for darker shades of gray and even black tones as the neutral tones for interior designs. If you want to go darker but not quite black, other popular options include navy blue and sage green. When employing dark shades, remember not to overdo it. If you’re using a darker shade for walls, for example, use lighter colors for your furniture and rugs. After all, you want the room to feel sophisticated, not like a black hole.

Bring Nature Indoors With Organic Shades

Maybe deeply sophisticated isn’t exactly your style. If you prefer lighter, airier interior decor, organic tones will be on trend in 2020 as well. These neutral tones of light gray and beige are reminiscent of forest and woods, adding a rustic appeal to homes even in the middle of the city. Mix these tones with one or two bright splashes of color if you like, but keep the overall look one of rustic elegance.

Consider the Generation Gap of Interior Color Trends

Maybe you’re curious about what other people your age are doing and want to stick to generational trends. Perhaps you just want to know what not to do based on your age. Understanding the Interior color trends among generations can help you determine whether you’re more like your peers or marching to the beat of your own drum.

Are you part of the boomer generation? People around your age typically still prefer white and beige. On the other hand, nearly 30% of people who are part of Generation Z love bright shades like orange and yellow, not to mention bold design patterns. Generations in the middle tend to fall somewhere…well, in the middle. Millennials in particular are starting to turn more toward deep, bold jewel-tones like shades of blue and purple.

Know That Beige Still Reigns as a Interior Design Color Trend

Beige was big in the 90’s and early 2000’s. It’s still popular in rental apartments where most landlords prefer to keep things neutral. Overall, though, the earth tone has gone the way of the dinosaurs. Or has it? Beige was once overpowered by the also neutral gray, but these days it’s making a comeback. Pair it with black or white for a natural look or navy blue or hunter green for something more dramatic. You can even get truly bold by mixing pops of neon into your otherwise neutral color scheme.

Add Some Champagne Colors To Your 2020 Interior Design

Yes, the bubbly is great, but that’s not what this style tip is referring to. When you’re considering your redecorating options for 2020, think in shades of champagne. This neutrally hued, beige-centered color is picking off all the grays of recent years. When paired with wood floors, deeper hues for the walls, and earthy decor, the tone creates a natural vibe that also works well with bolder textures. If you must go glam, add metallic accessories in silver or gold.

Try Something Frilly With Millennial Pink Colors For Your Decor

Before the term “Millennial Pink” was coined, this rosy shade was simply referred to as “blush.” The light, pastel color is a classic that also lends its hand to modern decor. The delicate color looks amazing in chic home offices, nurseries and children’s rooms, or even kitchens and bathrooms. Try antique rugs in a darker shade of pink to help you make a look that’s more sophisticated. Add some purples and aquamarine tones to really pack a punch with your interior design ideas.
