Is your home in need of a refurb, or is time for your 5-year paint refresh?

Either way now’s the time to embrace the latest trends in paint colors to create stylish living spaces that will be the envy of your friends and right on-trend. 

While there’s no official paint color of the year in any year, there are several recommendations put forward by paint manufacturers and designers. 

These are the top ones for 2020.

Classic Blue

This year, Classic Blue is the Pantone Color of the year, which is a good indication that we’ll be seeing it in designs everywhere. 

Blue has always been a popular color to create a restful, reassuring ambiance. This particular shade implies dependability and stability, making it a great choice for both homes and businesses. 

White is Back 

While all-white kitchens are going the way of the dodo, this simple hue is popping up more as a paint color of choice for living areas. 

Instead of flat white, opt for subtle nuances of the shade, layered one on top of the other. Consider moody whites, classic whites, and high gloss finishes to add interest. 

Burnt Orange

A natural progression from the pale 2019 living coral phase, burnt orange and rust paint colors epitomize the turn toward mimicking the bolder shades of nature. 

We’re bound to see more of these bold, rustic shades, like wine, chocolate brown, and olive green, coming to the fore.


Peacock combines the best aspects of classic blue and off black to create a moody, elegant feel for formal spaces. 

It’s part of the latest craving jewel tones that have been dominating decor for a while now. You should also consider rich blues and greens if you like the simultaneously calming and invigorating effect of these colors.

Terracotta Clay

A leading paint manufacturer nominated this hue as it’s color the year and it ties in well with the nature theme that’s dominating interior design in 2020.

Shades of warm putty create a timeless cozy look and bring classically aged appeal to dining and living rooms. 

Dusty Teal

If you prefer neutral shades, this pale bluish-gray color goes well with almost anything. It’s a good match for all the other trending shades and suits wood finishes like oak and birch too.

Dusty teal is a good pick for bedrooms where you want to create a soothing, peaceful atmosphere. 

Choosing your Own Paint Color of the Year

The one design element that 2020 will most likely stand out for is individuality. This year’s biggest trend is ignoring the trends and going with what makes you happy.

So if you’re still in love with millennial pink or greige. Go for it!

You’re the one who has to live with it after all.
