2020's Most Popular Interior Colors

 Our Color of The Year for this year is (drum roll please...) KM5183 Sun God. Tah Dah!!!

KM5183 Sun God is Kelly-Moore Paints Color of the Year COTY for 2020

This brash brassy yellow bursting onto the scene interrupting white rooms and neutral schemes with a statement of personal passion and confidence. Bright yellow is showing up on faucets, cabinets, upholstery, accent walls, and more.

 It’s also a cheerful accent that pairs surprisingly well with warm gray and any blue (which by the way, will always be in style).

But pink isn’t over yet- not by a long shot! We're seeing Sun God accents with faded pinks and dusty warm tones like terracotta... we personally love it.

Not to mention, rich jewel-toned pinks like this...

Mossy murky greens are definitely coming onto the scene. Have you noticed? We're seeing all values of this verdant hue on walls and cabinets too.

And this is interesting, when I wrote our Color Trend press release back (way back) in October 2019, I said that:  “I think we’re looking for reassurance and stability in our homes right now.”

Wow, isn't this more true than ever! Still, we all respond to color differently. A deep blue may be comforting for one person and to oppressive for another. So, while trends are cool to watch and fun to explore, at the end of the day, You Have To Do YOU!

Here are the seventeen colors we dominating this year. We grouped them into trendy color palettes but you can use them any way you want.

And don't forget you can shop for paint by color and have your paint and supplies prep'd at the store for you so all you have to do is pick it up. How cool is that?!
