PANTONE Home + Interiors 2020 Color Forecast | A First Look
In the latest edition of what has become a must own series for home and interior design enthusiasts, PANTONE explores “Color for a New Era: Trends, Twists and Tweaks.”
PANTONEVIEW home + interiors 2020 guides us into this new era reinforcing the notion that muted and vibrant tones can co-exist, and that a traditional style, especially when tweaked with futuristic touches, offers an unusual and original approach to a product or an interior.
PANTONEVIEW home + interiors 2020 is more than the ‘book’ itself; it comes with an enclosed USB drive featuring forecast imagery separated by color family and projected color palettes. In addition, each book comes with a complimentary PANTONE Color Software Manager download which allows you integrate PANTONE colors into digital designs. It’s the perfect way to ensure that your digital design presents the exact color palette you will see in your finished home design space.
What can we learn from the colors presented in this PANTONE forecast? Primarily, that we can throw some staid, traditional color design “rules” out the window. Of particular note to our team at ‘Design Your Lifestyle’ was the re-imagining of traditional neutral tones – taking their place as ‘anchor’ tones in color palettes are more diverse shades like Infinity (a gorgeous dusky blue), Plum Kitten (a gray with very faint reddish-purple undertones), and the classic Maroon.
While ‘neutral’ takes on a different role in this collection, green and floral tones are dominant. We are enamored with the two green colors in the set (Smoke Green and Watercress), which open up a myriad of pairing options. We love the green tones with the light mustard-yellow Acacia, the peachy Dusty Pink, and the punchy Super Pink.
In all, there are 72 forecasted colors in the PANTONEVIEW home + interiors 2020 guide; we’ve narrowed our preview of this collection to 8 of our very favorite from the “Beyond the Pale” series. We’d love to know what you think about the color palette – leave us a comment!
