One of the easiest ways to refresh your living space is by switching up the colour palette. And it is that time of the year again where we choose what hues make the list in 2020. In fact, we find this an exciting ritual every year and what makes it extra special this year is that we enter a new decade.
Pantone recently announced its colour of the year 2020 —Classic Blue. After a vibrant colour in 2019 and purple and violet tones in 2018, this hue will dictate colour trends in home décor, fashion, beauty and even food in the coming year. Classic Blue happens to be a favourite for interior designers since it is a colour you can easily rely on. As a matter of fact, Pantone’s colour choice of the year embarks the gradual return to traditional decorating styles for home décor.
Wall paint trends keep changing year on year. While 2018 saw an edgy palette with vibrant shades or reds, variations in black wall accents, and modern metallic, 2019 seems to be different. This year, the focus is shifting towards soothing colours, neutral shades and earthy tones. Minimalism is in vogue! People are showing rising preference towards not-so-loud shades. Colour choices like pale beige, off-cream, ivory are in spotlight. Moreover, an emphasis on surreal patterns is driving the wall paint industry in 2019.
Sometimes it creeps up on you, and sometimes it hits you – but very few human beings today can claim that they have never felt low. And while the best thing to do always is to sort it out internally, we are simple creatures. A cup of ice-cream, a favourite song – something as simple as even this can lift our spirits.
