  1. White

Classic neutrals always stay in style and white is by far the most popular neutral colour. But there are many, many shades of white. 2020 will see a move away from cold, stark whites to yellow-pigmented creams and grey-whites, bringing warmth to interior spaces. A big interior trend in 2020 is going to be white on white, especially in rooms such as bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchens. But think zen and serene not clinical and cold. Usee a mix of white in paint, tiles and benchtops to create depth and warmth. Or a bedroom with creamy white walls, soft white linen and bright white sheer curtains all adding moody elements to create a layered interior design. 

  1.  Blue

Jewel-toned blues, dusk blues, ocean blues, the blue inspired paint trends of 2020 are grounded in earthly foundations. Blue is being called the new black and the new white. Selecting a lighter tone of blue for the main colour and then a sea blue for feature walls will be a huge trend for colour lovers in 2020. 

  1. Green

Dulux has chosen a cool-tone shade of green as it’s Colour of the Year for 2020.

Dulux says that Tranquil Dawn “embodies the nation’s mood on the approach of a new decade. And reflects a growing desire to understand what it is to be human at a time when advances in technology are making us feel increasingly disconnected from each other.”

Qpaint is a Dulux accredited partner and we love the new greens on offer for 2020. Nature is making its way into our homes through interior trends with paint colours reflecting forest greens, sea greens, olive greens and serene greens. Green is a paint colour that not only looks amazing but provides a calming and creative environment. Perfect for offices, family rooms and bedrooms. Nature-inspired green paints paired with natural finishes and pops of rich jewelled green furnishings is right on trend in 2020. 

  1. Blush

Pink is a bold paint colour choice and not for everyone, but blush tones of pink are much more muted and modern, making it much more appealing for interior design paint choices. Muted blush paint makes for a fantastic backdrop when combined with warmer jewel tones. Think bedrooms with blush paint and warm pink jewelled toned furniture and linen. This look is chic and modern. Great for personalised home offices and bedrooms. 

  1. Burnt Orange

Burnt orange is the pop of colour to add vibrancy and personality to your home. These shades include rust tones and as they are quite bold need to be used in moderation. Think of using them in areas that are not large but make the most of a pop of colour like the front door, back door or small feature walls in the dining room or hallway. 

  1. Clay

Clay was popular in 2019 and continues its rise as a neutral in 2020. Warm putty paint colours that invoke earthenware and aged plaster are the 2020 clay colour trends. 2020 colour trends are influenced by the current state of our climate and show the love of our earth. Soft greens, earthy oranges, blues and greens and neutrals in warm white and clay. Clay toned paint is suitable for any room and can be the main wall colour of any room. 

  1. Champagne

Pop the cork and pour some champagne paint colour on your walls. This colour is pushing out the cool greys of previous years and becoming a mainstay in the paint world. Champagne paint colour is a beige, natural tone and brings more warmth to space than the cool greys. And is on trend with the earthy, warm tones popular in interior design for 2020.
