Sherwin Williams Color of the Year 2020 - Naval SW 6244

SW-6244-Naval- Sherwin Williams Color of the Year 2020

We talked previously in the year about Behr's Color of the Year 2020 and now its Sherwin Williams!  Naval SW 6244 is a beautiful color, plain and simple.  It has such a wide range of depth and simplicity and is dark and mysterious while being beautiful and bold.  This is one of my favorite Colors of the Year, in fact, it has been the color of my own personal house for 3 years.  We have helped clients come to the decision to use Naval on many occasions because of how beautiful it is.  

Color Trends 

The idea of color and how it trends really is amazing.  I believe its a culmination of Social Media posts from Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, and much more.  I like to think of it as a wildfire.  It starts somewhere and the wind blows and boom, full-blown trend.  We have been watching the trends for years and watching the ebb and flow starting with one color and then as that fades another takes its place and sometimes eventually colors come back and combos come back. Color does things for peoples emotional well-being and in this time of uncertainty, painting your walls can provide a change in scene and a change in emotional state.

2020 Interior Color Trends: Is White the New Gray?

2020 Interior Color Trends: Is White the New Gray?

As we have rolled into 2020 we have seen more and more customers moving to the lighter side of color!  Ultra Whites are the latest trending colors with our clients in Colorado.  

For so many years, the trend was to have an all-over color with wall accents to pop throughout the house or in a specific room, but now the trend is seeming to go the other way.  Wall accents are no longer in trend!  In fact grays are slowly going away and leaving room for fresh, clean white walls and white ceilings as well as trim and doors.

Color Trends

How are trends determined?  

Who said in the nineties that peach and light teal were going to be the hot trend?  How come you can see specific colors and it evokes a memory of a certain time in history.  Colors come in groups, they are sold to us in a package, if you walk through a department store you can see certain colors that are prominent in fashion, home decor, paint, and any imaginable item one could spend money on.  For example a few years back sand-colored tans, rich chocolate browns, and robin’s egg blues became very popular in everything from dishes, skirts, baby bedding and office supplies.  I was enamored by this color scheme and had pillows, rugs, and paints with this scheme and wore these color religiously.  This is when I first realized the degree of influence the color marketing groups have on our day to day purchases.  When this small and influential group of people determined these were the colors of the future they then informed the dye makers, paint industry, and anyone who wanted to be on what seems like the cutting edge of color.  When I saw this trend so strong in all aspects of our lives it made me think about color combos of the past and more importantly color stories that were going to be given to us for the future.  I researched trends and looked for what fashion gurus and influential designers were talking about and what I heard over and over again was all about smokey grays and sunny yellows.  I immediately fell in love, like a sucker I was hooked, and decided this was how I wanted to redo my own master bedroom.  I shopped online and looked everywhere I could think to find these colors in linens and decorative items but it was not to be found anywhere.  My only option was to settle for colors that were not quite right or make custom pieces.  If only I had waited for 6 more months I could have bought exactly what was in my minds eye and even found it at discount stores like Target.
