Colour Trends for 2020
Colour trends are an integral part of home décor design. They evoke emotional and visceral feelings. Adding splashes of colour with throw pillows or planters are perfect ways to create a colour design story. For the year 2020, the colour trends are soft, muted and subdued: Neo Mint, Cantaloupe, and Mellow Yellow.
The pastel green is a gender-neutral shade that blends technology and nature. The mint green hue calms and soothes. It's no wonder hospital scrubs are this tranquil menthol green tone, as it comforts and exhibits optimism, wisdom and well-being. CTG Brand’s Ceramic Enamel Mug (Item 65920-MI, 16 oz., dishwasher and microwave safe) and Classic Round Bell Alarm Clock (Item 52176, 3.5"L x 5.25"H x 2.75"W) showcase the mint green beautifully. Everyday home décor items can carry off colour trends by adding vibrancy to a room. If you’re nervous about introducing this colour into your home remember that Neo Mint couples well with neutrals: white, black and grey.
Boho Face Vase, Tall (Item 65866, 5.25”D x 11.75”H) and Boho Face Vase, Short (Item 65867, 4.25”D x 9.75”H)
Think outside the mildly sweet and juicy fruit and watch out for the muted and more youthful, fresh shade of Cantaloupe. Evolving from the previously bright and bold orange hues, this more subdued colour gives a feel-good quality that's optimistic, uplifting and rejuvenating. These fresh Cantaloupe planters and vases work perfectly indoors or on a covered terrace and patio: Boho Face Planter, Wide (Item 65865, 8.75”D x 4”H), Boho Face Vase, Tall (Item 65866, 5.25”D x 11.75”H) and Boho Face Vase, Short (Item 65867, 4.25”D x 9.75”H). This colour is the perfect pop for both indoor and outdoor spaces.
Moving towards the earthy colour spectrum, Mellow Yellow is a deeper mustard yellow. It's reminiscent of the retro, sun-soaked 70’s vibes…remember Atari, roller skates, bell bottoms and shag carpets? Mellow Yellow can bring some serious radiant and joyous vibes. No wonder Beyoncé flaunted this classic yellow in her Lemonade "Hold Up" video. Queen B always ahead of the trends! CTG’s Mellow Yellow items include the Boho Faux Velvet Round Pintuck Cushion (Item 65815, 15"D x 4"W, 100% polyester) and Boho Faux Velvet Square Pillow (Item 66924, 17.5"L x 17.5"H x 4"W). Don’t be afraid to bring these nostalgic hues into your space, these retro colours can transform both traditional and contemporary spaces.
Keep your eyes peeled for these must-have colours, Neo Mint, Cantaloupe, and Mellow Yellow. They will be featured and accented all over retailer shelves next year. These 2020 colour trends will be a refreshing twist to your home décor style.
