As colour predictions start to emerge for 2020, a notable trend toward more natural living is evident. Earthy colours set the tone for 2020, as well as attention to ethical, eco-friendly and sustainable design. Design embracing nature and bringing a more earth-inspired feel to our homes.
Taking Colour Back to Nature – Earthy Colours Set the Tone for 2020
The 2020 Colour of the Year announcements have shown a notable trend toward nature-inspired colours. Colours that will add a calm, peaceful feel to our homes. For instance, the bold blues of PPG’s Chinese Porcelain and Sherwin-Williams’ Naval. Also, the earthy tone of Beauti-tone’s Honey I’m Home, Behr’s Back to Nature and Dulux’s 2020 Colour Palette. It’s safe to say that earthy colours and tones will have a strong presence in the coming year.
Function, Style and Sustainability
Not only will earthy colours set the tone for 2020, but we are also thinking more and more about protecting the beauty of nature for future generations. Good design has always been about finding the right balance between style and function, creating spaces that are both beautiful and livable. Today, a third aspect is becoming an increasingly important part of the equation and that is sustainability.
Passive Haus technology and improved building techniques allow us to minimize the impact our homes have on the environment both now and into the future. At the same time, tiny home living and creative small space solutions allow us to maximize the use of space while living within a smaller footprint. We are also paying more attention to the decorative items we add to our home. We’re paying attention to the materials used and the origin of the product in an effort to choose ethically and sustainably produced products as often as possible.
