Yes, in case you haven’t heard, it is that time of year. No, I don’t mean falling leaves and pumpkins, I mean the time that most paint and color driven companies announce their take on the Color of the Year. It can become a bit confusing because no one seems to agree. Every company insists their choice is the best as a result of their rigorous selection process. 

If you are a homeowner in search of the colors you should use in your home, it can be a bit confusing. Those colors of the year make for great press and allow retail outlets to have new things to merchandise. The bottom line is, your home is all about you, so always use the colors you love.

If you don’t know where to start, someone like me can help you blend what you already have with what is on-trend to have a room you love. If you love to hear what is new, you are in the right place. Let’s explore some of 2020’s Colors of the Year.

Sherwin Williams Naval


Here is a project I recently did for an eDesign client inspired by the richness of Naval.

Blue isn’t new, but we are seeing more true blues as a replacement for all the black we have seen the past few years. The beauty of a deep value like Naval is you can use a lot or a little depending on your comfort level. From great backdrop color when used on the walls or simply in décor items, you can’t go wrong with Naval. Part of what makes Naval fabulous is its versatility. It provides great contrast when used with whites, off-whites, grays, beiges, and golds.

Benjamin Moore First Light

Yes, Millennial Pink is still on-trend, but let’s be honest, as lovely as this color is, the appeal will not be broad.  Think Pink isn’t just for bedrooms or bathrooms, however. This is another versatile color that plays well with so many other colors including SW Naval. Personally, I think this is a color best used as an accent unless you truly are drawn to a more feminine look but again this is all about you, the client.

Pantone Bleached Coral

Pantone is the color guru in the industry. Their system of standardizing colors is used in every business, including interior design, print, fashion, and so much more.

Pantone continues down the path of blue-greens with Bleached Coral, coming on the heels of 2019’s Living Coral. A beautiful color but have we seen enough of this color family? If you are a stager with a lot of this color family in your inventory, consider popping in gold to give it a fresh look. Yes, gold and beiges are back.

We have just talked about a few of the big hitters and all of them can be a great addition to your room. Update with accents in any one of these colors.  Can’t decide which you like best, you don’t have to choose. Find an element that marries your colors as I did here with both a rug and art to give a room an on-trend look.

Colores del Año 2020

Si, en caso de que usted no haya  escuchado… es esa época del año. No me refiero a las hojas de los árboles  cayéndose y calabazas… Me refiero a la época del año en que las compañias de pintura anuncian su color del año. Puede ser un poco confuso… porque nadie parece estar de acuerdo. Cada compañia insiste que su color es el mejor como resultado de un riguroso proceso de selección. Si usted es propietario de una casa en busca de los colores que usted deberia usar en su hogar, puede ser un poco confuso. Esos colores del año hacen una buena publicidad y permiten que los puntos de venta tengan cosas nuevas para vender.

Pero en resumen, su casa es su hogar, entonces use los colores que a usted le gusten. Si usted no saben donde empezar, alguien como yo puede ayudarlo a combinar lo que usted ya tiene con lo que está de moda para obtener la habitación que usted quiere. Si usted quiere saber que está de moda, usted está en el lugar correcto.  Exploremos algunos de los colores del año 2020.

Sherwin Williams Naval

Azul no es nuevo, pero estamos viendo más azules verdaderos como reemplazo al negro que hemos estado viendo los últimos años.

La belleza de un color profundo como Naval es que usted puede usar mucho o poco, dependiendo de su nivel de comodidad.

Desde un color de fondo cuando es usado en paredes o simplemente en elementos de decoración, usted no se puede equivocar con Naval.

Lo que hace fabuloso a Naval es que es versatil.  Proporciona un gran contraste cuando es usado con blancos, blanquecinos o blancos apagados, grises, beiges y dorados.

Este es un proyecto que recientemente hize para un eDesign cliente, inspirado en las riquezas de Naval.

Benjamin Moore First Light

Si, Milenario Rosa, está todavia de moda… pero seamos honestos, asi como es de hermoso este color, el atractivo no será amplio. Pero no piense que Rosa es solo para dormitorios y baños. Este es otro color versatil que combina bien con muchos otros colores incluyendo SW Naval. 

Personalmente, pienso que este color es mejor usado como un llamativo a menos que usted realmente esté atraido por un look más femenino, pero de nuevo esto es todo acerca de usted…el cliente.

Pantone Bleached Coral

Pantone es el color gurú en la industria. Su sistema de estandarización de colores es usado en varios negocios, incluyendo diseño de interiores, impresión, moda y mucho más. Pantone continua por el camino de azules verdosos con Bleached Coral, pisando los talones de 2019’s Living Coral.

Un hermoso color, pero hemos visto suficiente de esta familia de color? Si usted es un stager con mucho de esta familia de color en su inventario, considere agregar dorado para dar un look fresco.

Si, dorado y beiges están de vuelta.

Hemos hablado acerca de algunos de los colores de moda y todos ellos pueden ser una buena alternativa para su habitación.

Actualice con llamativos en cualquiera de estos colores . No puede decider cual color le gusta más? Usted no tiene que escoger. Encuentre un elemento que complemente su color como yo hize aqui con ambos, una alfombra y arte para dar a la habitacion un look de moda.

Regina “Gina” Sullivan | Decorating and Staging by Gina

Hola, I am Gina (Regina) Sullivan. I was born in Cali Colombia and arrived in the USA in 2007 to settle in Indiana. My American husband and I are blessed to have a handsome 5-year-old little boy, who like most boys, can be a bit of a rascal. I speak Spanish and English, as does my Son. I work hard trying to build a better life for him. I want him to appreciate the beauty and comfort of a lovely home, where even simple things can be better. One of my simple pleasures is Me Gusta Mi Café in the morning. I have always loved colors and creating beautiful spaces. A few years ago, I took some online drapery classes and it just ignited my love for Interior Decoration and everything related to it. I began training with a variety of industry experts and can’t wait to share my love for decorating with you. I have learned over the years, an organized home looks better. Me Gusta Ser Organizada. Some of my favorite things, (beyond my morning café) are going to the ocean and visiting my parent’s farm in Colombia. Both places make me feel peaceful and inspire by eye for color and design. I would love to help you have the home that brings you peace and provides comfort. There is nothing better than coming to a beautiful home at the end of a long day.
