Here is an excerpt from an article from Good House Keeping that can be found here.

One of the easiest ways to update your home is by swiping on a fresh coat of paint. No matter which room you’re in — the bedroom, kitchen, or bath — adding a new color to your walls or furniture is a cheap and commitment-free way to make an eye-catching change. And because paint is totally reversible, it’s also one of the best ways to incorporate some of the latest interior design trends into your home every few years.

If you’re ready to make a major change this year, look no further than the top paint colors of 2020, which run the gamut from bubbly blush to earthy clay. To find these paint ideas, we asked interior designers which colors they expected to see in abundance in the new year. Whether your style is modern or traditional, minimalist or extravagant, there’s a 2020 paint color for you. And if you need even more low-cost ways to revamp your space, try one of these DIY home decor projects.

  1. White

One of the biggest paint color trends of 2020 is white on white on white — but this concept is anything but boring. “While this might have been a sterile envelope before, it’s only getting more subtle and layered,” says interior designer Breeze Giannasio. “We’ll see moody white set against clean, modern whites, lending age and depth to this versatile color.”

2) Blush

Ever since the term “millennial pink” was coined around 2016, the color has become an interior design phenomenon. “Blush will continue to be big in 2020 due to its ability to feel modern when mixed with warmer jewel tones and its ability to bring a chic feel to any room or piece of furniture,” says interior designer Abbe Fenimore of Studio Ten 25.

3) Navy

Each of the designers we spoke with said navy was likely to be one of the biggest paint color trends of 2020. “Navy has become a great alternative to black and it pairs with so many looks,” says Fenimore. “I love seeing bathrooms and kitchen cabinets in navy; it brings a dash of sophistication to a space without feeling too harsh.”

4) Burnt Orange



Burnt orange and rust shades add an invigorating pop of color to any space — just make to sure use them in moderation. “Think your front door or a guest bathroom,” says Giannasio. “Someplace where you’re not confronted with the color every day.

5) Peacock

Moody paint colors, such as peacock blue, charcoal, and off-black, are ready to take center stage in the new year. “We’ve been celebrating jewel tones for a while now, and 2020 will continue to tease out handsome enveloping hues that have both a calming and invigorating effect,” says Giannasio.

6) Hunter Green

In a similar vein as navy blue, other classic masculine colors, such as saddle brown and hunter green, are expected to have a moment. “They’re timeless, chic, and handsome,” says Giannasio.

7) Clay

In 2019, Sherwin-Williams named its Cavern Clay terracotta paint its color of the year, and you can expect to continue to see warm putty paint colors inspired by aged plaster, earthenware, and clay in the new year. “One of the emerging design trends is an appreciation of patina and age and this is one avenue to invoke it through color,” says Giannasio.

A few months ago we published a blog about daring home paint colors, and now we think we should follow up with the flip side to that post. While daring exterior paint colors are often fun and bold, they usually only exist as trends and tend to go out of style as quickly as they came into style. This opens up the potential for a lot of regret if you feel like you have to change your paint color to keep up with the trend. So with this post, we’ll be talking about six timeless exterior paint colors that we think would look great on your northern Colorado home. This one goes out to the traditionalists, or at least the ones who don’t want to regret the color choice they choose for the exterior of their home.

exterior home paint colors

Buttery Yellow

This light yellow color is extremely inviting – plain and simple. It’s also a classic. If you want to give your home a welcoming curb appeal, then a light yellow would be a great choice. Typically this color looks best on wood, but you can also pull it off with a brick exterior. That’s just how flexible this color is!


A light neutral like tan or khaki is never a bad choice when it comes to exterior painting. This color is easy to landscape around, as well as decorate around with trim, shutters, etc. Especially if you live in a more traditional neighborhood, this would undoubtedly be a paint color that would blend well with your surroundings.

Light Grey

In the same vein, a light grey is a neutral that will always be around. Light grey will give your home a clean and sleek appearance from the curb, especially if you pair it with white trim. Just like the rest of the colors, a light grey is also a great exterior paint color choice because it won’t clash with your roof color – that is, if you have traditional shingles.

Pale Pink

Like light yellow, a pale pink is a fun way to spice up a neutral feel. As well as inviting, this color is playful, soft, and peaceful, and would suite a home that embodies those qualities nicely. We especially think that pale pink would look great in Colorado during the summer!

Brick Red

Red is probably a classic because of brick homes. Something about that brick red color is just homey, and many homeowners are painting their wood homes this red brick color. We can assure you that as long as brick is still being used to construct homes, this color will be around. This red is strong and comforting, and pairs nicely with classic white shutters. Green really shows up well against brick red, which makes it ideal for homes with a lot of landscaping or ivy.


Where red exterior paint most likely comes from brick, white exterior paint most likely comes from the earliest white washed wooden homes. White looks good on homes for a number of reasons. First, it’s clean. The only thing to consider is just like a white car, a white house will show dirt when it does end up getting dirty. Second, it looks great year round. Whether your white home is blanketed in snow, or basking in a sunny summer day, it’s going to look great!

Little details make all the difference. Crown molding may seem like a minor detail, but it can transform the mood and feel of any room in your home. From traditional to more contemporary, molding is the finishing touch you need to complete your room. Not only will moldings make the rooms of your home more welcoming to family and guests, they will increase the resale value of your home. No matter the size, shape, or color of your room, crown molding is a valuable option for you. Repainting your trim will bring any room back to life!

Accent Wall

Your rooms wouldn’t be special without the things inside of them – so show them off! Accenting a wall creates a focal point that emphasizes the items on or near the accented wall. Consider what you want to highlight in the room, then paint a different color on the wall that these items are on or right in front of. For common areas like living rooms and dens, accent walls complement and emphasize fireplaces and TVs especially well. In the bedroom, an accented wall at the head of the bed usually shows the bed off the best. Not only will an accent wall liven up your room, it will make your belongings look great as well!

Paint Your Front Door

This exterior painting project is a minor task that will make a huge difference! A new paint color on your front door will make your home feel new and exciting for you and your guests, and you’ll be reminded of this every time you come and go! Don’t want a new color? Consider just applying a new coat – your home will seem inviting before your guests even step inside. Red has always been thought of as the most welcoming front door color, but there are plenty of colors that will work for front doors depending on how bold you’re willing to be!

Plain Ol’ Touch Ups

Adding a new coat of paint to your home is actually a great way to make it more inviting. Many people paint their interior once and then don’t ever paint again. Over time, the paint naturally fades or becomes damaged by wear and tear. A fresh coat of paint, even if it’s the same color as your existing paint, can transform a room depending on how old the existing paint job is. Our professional painters are trained to recognize when it’s time for a new coat of paint, and they’d love to assess the interior of your home if you think it might be time.
