Chartreuse by Etsy

Kick-off the new year in energetic fashion with Etsy’s pick for color of the year: chartreuse. A vibrant shade somewhere between green and yellow, this lively hue is guaranteed to stand out. According to Etsy’s 2020 trend report, chartreuse is a bold color “known for increasing energy, encouraging unconventional thinking, and evoking feelings of growth and harmony.” The online marketplace also notes that the color choice reflects a broader trend of ’80s neon shades that are currently making a comeback in the design world. Underscoring the resurgence in this color’s popularity, Etsy reports a 55% increase in searches for neon-green items in the past three months. If you’re looking to give your space a fresh start in 2020, consider incorporating vibrant accents of chartreuse.

Classic Blue by Pantone

The color of the year pick by Pantone Color Institute is always a highly anticipated announcement. Founded in 1963, Pantone is an industry leader in color; according to its website, "more than 10 million designers and producers" rely on its products and services for color inspiration and guidance. The company announced its first-ever color of the year, Cerulean, in 1999, and the creative world has eagerly awaited its annual prediction each December since.This year, their color experts searched for a shade that would bring a sense of calm to our fast-paced, technology-filled world. Enter: a rich, timeless hue called Classic Blue. Reminiscent of a twilight sky, the deep shade of blue evokes a tranquil feeling. The 2020 Pantone color of the year is intended to reflect a "desire for a dependable and stable foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era," according to a press release from the company. As deep blue is considered one of the most soothing shades, this sounds like the perfect color to ease us into the new decade.

First Light by Benjamin Moore

Expect to see plenty of pink in the upcoming year. Benjamin Moore's First Light 2102-70 is a soft shade of pink that continues the trend of rosy hues featured as 2020 colors of the year, including Valspar's Bombay Pink and Romance by HGTV Home. The color reflects "a shift in mindset from the material to satisfying the core needs in life: community, comfort, security, self-expression, authenticity, and ultimately, optimism," says Andrea Magno, Benjamin Moore director of color marketing and development, in a news release.The pastel pink joins a list of nine other colors to round out Benjamin Moore's Color Trends 2020 palette, including: White Heron, Crystalline, Windmill Wings, Buxton Blue, Golden Straw, Thunder, Cushing Green, Oxford Gray, and Blue Danube. The colors are inspired by a "new era of design rooted in fluidity for the multigenerational, multifunctional, and different states of mind now found under one roof." Feature First Light as a new neutral—the shade is subtle enough to be used on every wall in a living room or bedroom—and pair it with bright white or beige deco

Valspar 2020 Colors of the Year

Valspar, which was acquired by Sherwin-Williams in 2017, turned to the great outdoors to choose not one but 12 colors of the year for 2020. The dozen nature-inspired hues are intended to “invite serenity into your home,” according to a news release. The list contains a mix of pinks, greens, and neutrals, including: Winter Calm, Mint Whisper, Canyon Earth, Grey Brook, Tempered Sage, Desert Fortress, Secluded Garden, Bombay Pink, Pale Powder, Utterly Blue, Crushed Out, and Secret Moss. The colors were designed to showcase shades “that are subdued and livable,” which means you won’t find anything bright and bold in this collection.

“The palette of colors that is accepted as neutrals in the home has expanded,” says Sue Kim, Valspar marketing manager at Sherwin-Williams. “We are looking to bring colorful neutrals into our home to add personality and elegance while still remaining comfortable.”

Although Kim says she “truly loves” all the hues, Secluded Garden and Bombay Pink are her favorites. “I love the potential of these shades; they have a soft tactile quality,” she says. “When used as an all-over room color, each really embodies the immersive color experience we are seeing embraced in the home today.” Bombay Pink looks especially luxe when paired with gold accents. All of the colors are available at Lowe’s and independent retailers nationwide, so check out your local paint store if you’re interested in any of these options. However, it’s important to note that color names and shades can vary at each retailer.
