One of the quickest ways to refresh your home décor is by brushing on a new coat of paint. Regardless of what room — dining room, living room, or bedroom — changing the color of the walls is a easy way to make a dramatic change. And since paint is easy to change, it’s a great way to use some of the newest interior décor ideas in your home.
If you’re looking to make a major change with minor effort, consider these top paint colors for 2020. No matter your style — traditional, modern, or transitional — one or more of the colors below are bound to be perfect for your home.
Of course, the first color on my list is Classic Blue, the 2020 Pantone Color of the Year. You’ll see it featured in homes everywhere. The color is reminiscent of the deepening sky at dusk, and its reassuring qualities underscore our desire for a stable and dependable foundation. Pair it with corals, beiges, and casual coastal furniture such as the Sandcastle Coastal Dining Room Set by Hooker Furniture for a relaxed vibe.
When millennial pink burst on the scene in 2016, the color became an interior décor phenomenon. And this is not likely to end in 2020. If you are looking for bedroom interior design ideas, look no further than blush. The color is still gaining in popularity, valued for its ability to create a modern feeling in rooms when used with warm jewel tones. In addition, it brings a chic vibe to any space without going overboard. Use it as a barely there neutral paired with bright white and classic blue accessories.
Nature-inspired shades such as burnt orange and rust shades can add a lively bit of color to your living room design. Because these colors are so strong and bold, a little goes a long way. Consider painting the inside of your front door this color to add unexpected warmth to your entryway or living room.
White on White
One of the leading paint color trends this year is white on white. Consider this anything-but-boring color palette when you are looking for bedroom design ideas. This color scheme is getting more subtle and more layered. You’ll find moody whites, as seen in the headboard of the Newport Miranda Upholstered Headboard bed by Hooker Furniture set against a clean, modern white, giving the room age and depth.
Gray is such a versatile color that it is always on the list of bedroom design ideas. This beautiful color retains earth tones while adding a surprising amount of character to your bedroom. The moody gray wall is the perfect foil for the Miles Bed with Upholstered Headboard from Artiste custom division of A.R.T. Furniture. Confidently contemporary and softly inviting, the bed’s glam metallic finish gives the room Old Hollywood appeal.
A dark, moody hunter green is to bedroom design what oversized sunglasses are to street style. The color is a whole mood on its own. And just because you have painted the walls hunter green doesn’t mean you can’t double down with accessories such as linens, throws, and pillows all in the same color family. The look is timeless, clean, and decidedly masculine. If you are looking for bedroom design ideas that lean towards a male perspective, this is the way to go.
With homeowners boldly trying out new rich and moody colors, there’s no doubt that homes will contain more color now than ever. While neutrals will maintain their popularity, remember you can give your living room design some extra style by painting the walls a jewel tone.
