Color in Balance: A Look at Design in 2020

CLEVELAND (June 10, 2019) – Sherwin-Williams is announcing its annual Colormix® Forecast, a collection of 45 hues that bring joy, serenity and focus to the mind, body and spirit. This year’s standout hues are expressed through five inspirational and balanced color collections that warmly welcome a new decade in home and commercial design: Alive, Mantra, Play, Haven and Heart.

“We expect 2020 to be an empowering year of change that will focus on bringing your best self into the new decade,” said Sue Wadden, director of color marketing at Sherwin-Williams. “Homeowners and designers alike are seeking warmth—colors that feel human and natural. The colors in these five palettes, when invited into our spaces, pave the way for wellness and self-nurturance.”

Wadden and the Global Forecast Team of color professionals at Sherwin-Williams spent the year researching color, design and pop culture trends across the globe, all culminating in a collaborative workshop to build the collection of simple, clean and essential hues. The forecast includes a wide spectrum of blues, shades of terracotta, warm neutrals, pinks and deep greens.
