To set your painting project in motion check out their suggestions for the trendy 2020 colors.


Create a serene, peaceful world with the muted but unique colors of Mantra. This color palette is what happens when “Nordic simplicity happily engages with the order and elegance of Japanese aesthetics to create a look that is the best of both worlds.”

Influenced by minimalism, serenity, and sanctuary, Mantra would make for a peaceful and fresh entryway color mix. But it’s simplistic mix of whites with an overall gray color palette make it versatile enough to be used anywhere in the home, while the barely-pink shade provides comfort and interest.


The Heart color palette is a blend of nine colors harmonizing to bring a meditative comfort found in everyday life. The earthy, natural tones are the perfect combination of modern design and bohemian vibes to create warmth and depth in your home.

Staying in touch with the desert color trends, these hues are delicate enough to be used in high-traffic areas but interesting enough to be used in bedrooms and bathrooms alike. Sherwin-Williams states that “humanity” is an influence of this palette, and its tenderness is meant to connect with all who enter the room.


Wake up and seize the day with the Alive color palette that breathes positivity and authenticity into your home. Beautiful neutrals come together to create a group of colors that inspire rejuvenation and authenticity.

Optimism is the main influence of this thought-provoking color combo. Anchored by deep blues, light blues, rich beiges and tans, this classic color combination has a twist of bright orange-golds to pop.


While the trend title perfectly encapsulates the colors within, ‘Play’ is one word that will definitely come to mind upon entering a room of the Play color palette . Pinks, teals, and aquas extend an invitation and set the stage for excitement.

Influences such as humor, joy, and energy make it the perfect color palette to use Play in a child’s room, a play room, or a bright and modern dining room.


Pull the beauty of nature into your home and create an oasis with the Haven color palette. This Earthy color palette inspired by Earth’s seasonal cycles and features rich, subtle shades of sea, sand, forest and sky. Haven’s calm wash of balanced deep and light greens, taupes and whites, navy is accented by a sprinkling of rich gold.

This palette was influenced by simplicity, material health, and conservation. Use Haven wherever you want to provide an escape, whether it’s the foyer, a bedroom, or the den.
