If your walls are looking a little worn out or faded, there’s nothing like a fresh lick of paint to instantly transform your home and lift it from the doldrums. But what colours should you go for? The colour you choose doesn’t just reflect your personality, it can also determine how you feel every time you step foot into the room, so don’t go picking any random colour.
One sure way to get inspired is by looking at the major colour trends of the year. The Colour of the Year is a selected hue forecasted by established colour experts, and slated to become a key influence in home interiors and furniture design in 2020.
Professional colour standard provider Pantone, along with paint brands like Dulux and Nippon, are a few prominent names to release their own respective Colours of the Year, based on extensive research into modern lifestyles of consumers around the world.
There is a prevalence of cool colours, mostly greens, in the forecasted hues for the next 12 months. Associated with feelings of calm and tranquility, the cool colours are deliberately chosen to instill people with a quiet confidence as we venture forward into the new decade. The following are this year’s colours by Pantone, Dulux, Nippon and Gush, along with practical suggestions by some local interior designers on how to incorporate them into your home.
