The Latest Colour Trends of 2020

in Latest Trends

Are you looking to freshen up or transform a room in your house? Pinpointing the perfect colour for your space can be very tricky, but I have been investigating what some of the top designers and colour experts have been tipped for great new looks that will last for years to come.


Navy Blue

When I was growing up, I was always told that blue was a "male" colour. No longer! We have all come to realise how universal blue tones are and blue has recently been described as the "new neutral". In fact, Pantones colour of the year 2020 was awarded to Classic Blue. And with many top interior designers picking shades of blue are one of their top colours of the year, I don't think blues are going out of style anytime soon.


Avocado Green

Dark, warming, safe avocado green! This is the emerging colour of the year and I think it is only going to grow in popularity within homes. Why? Because the saturated green colour blends so well with almost every other colour. It is a safe colour that is under-used and makes a real statement. Perfectly match an avocado green wall with pops of whites, blacks, and bright colours to give a feeling of real warmth that stands out.



Warm Pastels

Consistently popular and not going out of fashion anytime soon. The beauty of warm pastel colours is it will make any colourful accessories pop.


Earth Tones

2020 is the year that earth tones came back with a vengeance. The popularity of Chocolate Browns, Olive Greens, Ochre’s, and Wine colours have exploded in recent months and I can see why. Combining these earthy tones can give a room a wonderfully calm and homely feeling. This colour scheme would sit perfectly in almost every dining room setting and is great for a calming, family feel.


My Top Tip

Whether you are looking for stylish darker moody tones, warm earth tones or punchy bold tones, I hope this article has helped provide you with some ideas. My personal top tip is, BLUE, BLUE, BLUE! Blue is the colour this year and it is not hard to see why. It can really help to liven up a living room and you can mix it with other punchy saturated colours, or darker moody greens and greys to give it the feel you want.
