Colour Trends 2020

2019 FLEW by at Zenterior, and we can certainly term it a year of colour love with a lot of our projects featuring bold splashes of colour, feature walls and accent cushions and lampshades.

So what trends are we looking at this year, and how can you make them work for you?

#1 Black and White

While certainly trending this year, black and white schemes have a bold timeless appeal. Maximise impact by combining this high contrast colour combination with large bold patterns. Use a small splash of accent colour to really give this look the "Wow" finish it deserves.

#2 Green

Greens are HUGE this year, in various shades. We love the dirty blue/grey greens, the rich forest greens, the soft pastel greens and the bright jewel greens, so we are spoilt for choice this year. This is a colour that layers beautifully with natural wood tones like rustic oak or chalk greys.

#3 Earth Tones

Getting back to nature is featuring pretty high on the design agenda with more and more designers turning away from plastics and poor quality disposable furniture, and putting more emphasis on responsibly sourced natural products.

We are seeing this trend reflected in this year's colour palette with natural woods being complemented with rust and earth tones. This makes for a very beautiful and calming scheme. Consider pairing an accent turquoise, teal or forest or olive green.

#4 Pink

Yes, blush pink, millennial pink and rose gold are still holding strong and feature prominently in collections from most of the main design houses. It is no great surprise that it has been so popular as it pairs beautifully with so many other trend shades including greys, moody blues and greens, blues and purples and even mustard or burnt orange for a clashing Bauhous feel.

#5 Orange

There are a few shades of orange around for 2020. Coral is still a big player, along with burnt orange, terracotta, apricot, and tangerine. Most of them feature here in Wilderie, the new collection from Emma Shipley.

Any of these tones work really well as a warm accent in a scheme and when paired with any of this year's main colours will pack a dynamic punch.
