CHICAGO, Oct. 4, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Valspar, the nation's most widely distributed paint brand from the Sherwin-Williams Consumer Brands Group, announces its 2020 Colors of the Year with 12 nature-inspired hues that invite serenity into your home.
When forecasting the 2020 Colors of the Year, the color experts at Valspar looked not only to the landscape of lifestyle trends, but also to the outdoors. Do-it-yourselfers are craving colors found in nature that are subdued and livable — improvements on paint colors they already have in their homes. For the first time, the 12 Valspar Colors of the Year were photographed in people's homes, giving the colors and images an aesthetic that represents the lifestyles of today's paint buyer. These livable neutrals make it easier to do home improvement projects right in all rooms – and all types – of homes.
"Earth's prescription for the chaotic, busy lives we all live is to bring the tranquility of nature and the outdoor world into the home. That's exactly what we set out to accomplish when forecasting the 2020 Colors of the Year," says Sue Kim, Valspar Color Marketing Manager at Sherwin-Williams. "Take Mint Whisper, for instance. The crisp shade brings a sense of peace — and nature's positivity — indoors."
Valspar offers not one – but 12 – Colors of the Year so that everyone has the opportunity to expand their creativity and find their own perfect color. Each of our 12 trending hues cultivate a safe, serene space, bringing joy and comfort to the home.
