I’m wish I could say I feel super excited about Behr’s Color of the Year 2020 choice after they did such a great job on picking color palettes that will embody the coming year.
It can’t be an easy task to pick a color that will kick off the next decade. So, what did Behr choose? Behr selected Back to Nature (S340-4), a restorative, slightly yellow-based green that imparts a fresh sense of vitality yet is subtle enough to serve as a new neutral.
Back to Nature feels like a safe choice and is very similar to Guilford Green, Benjamin Moore’s Color of the Year for 2015. Can you tell that Guilford Green is a tiny bit cooler in tone?
“This fresh and slightly yellow-based green serves as an ideal backdrop to satisfy the desire for a soft landing at home and reflects societal trends toward embracing the outdoors as a collective and personal self-care activity. Back To Nature’s universal appeal and willingness to coexist with other hues make it a great option for adding peace and tranquility to any space.”
If you’re looking for a way to freshen up your space and perhaps make your neighbors “green” with envy consider painting your walls with 2020’s new neutral.
