by admin

Are you wondering what the interior paint color trends for 2020 are for homeowners in the San Francisco Bay Area?  Read on to find out…

Each year, paint manufacturers embark upon predicting the next year’s popular paint colors. And although each manufacturer has their own theory as to what will be the new “in” current events, the environment, pop-culture, architectural, technology, and fashion trends play a big role in their predictions.

See which interior paint colors the experts say are going to be the favorites in 2020:


Classic Blue by Pantone

UPC - Pantone's Classic BlueThe interior paint color of the year pick by Pantone Color Institute is always a highly anticipated event. Founded in 1963, Pantone is the industry leader in color. This year, their color experts searched for a shade that would bring a sense of calm to our fast-paced, technology-filled world choosing a rich, timeless hue called Classic Blue. The deep shade of blue evokes a tranquil feeling and is intended to reflect a desire for a dependable and stable foundation. 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

UPC - Benjamin Moore 2020 paint colorsBenjamin Moore tells us to 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.

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 decor.

Valspar 2020 Colors of the Year Include a Mix of Pinks, Greens, and Neutrals

UPC - Valspar 2020 colorsValspar, which was acquired by Sherwin-Williams in 2017, blessed us with 12 nature-inspired colors for 2020. 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 are designed to showcase shades that are subdued and livable and inspire serenity in your home. You won’t find anything bright and bold in this collection.


Naval by Sherwin-Williams Color of the Year 2020

UPC - Sherman Williams Color of year 2020Sherwin-Williams chose Navy Blue as the company’s 2020 color of the year. Naval SW 6244 is a rich shade of blue that effortlessly pairs with both serene, muted palettes and flashy glamorous settings such as Carrara marble surfaces and metallic accents. “We’re predicting that the next decade in color is going to be bold,” said Sue Wadden, director of color marketing at Sherwin-Williams. “Naval merges the desire for rich, inspiring color with our yearning for relaxation and retreat.” Paint your walls with Naval and couple with crisp white trim work for a relaxing retreat, or make a splash in a contemporary kitchen with Naval cabinetry.

In addition, Sherman Williams has introduced us to 45 colors for 2020, arranged into 5 intuitive palettes that bring “joy, serenity and focus to the mind, body and spirit” according to their spokesperson. The pallets are: Alive, Mantra, Play, Haven, and Heart.
