Did you know that there is more than one color of the year? Twenty years ago the Pantone Color Institute began the tradition that is ubiquitous in the paint industry. Of course they don't really know at the beginning of the year what that will be but their prediction is based on what they see happening in the world and what's happening in retail and the lifestyle trends of influencers on social media.
Pantone will not release their pick until later in the year, Behr, Benjamin Moore and Sherwin and Williams have release their picks. They believe these colors will reflect the year ahead.
Behar's has chosen a green shade called "Back to Nature" which reflects the world of the great outdoors.
Benjamin Moor's selection is a soft pick called "First Light" because they keep seeing it this color pop up in their travels.
Sherwin Williams's color for 2020 is called "Naval" and is a calming color and always looks good.
It will be interesting to see what colors we spot in homes being listed for sale in 2020.
