Benjamin Moore recently announced their choice for the color of the year 2020. First Light (2102-70) is a soft blush that is forecasted to be the trend of 2020 with its delicate and refreshing nature. They mention that it is in between a cool- and a warm-tone, giving it more flexibility in design.
In fact, Benjamin Moore describes it as “a fresh palette; a revitalized spirit, a soft, rosy hue blooming with potential. Benjamin Moore’s Color of the Year 2020, First Light 2102-70, is the backdrop for a bright new decade.”
With First Light being Benjamin Moore’s first love for 2020, they also included nine other colors in their trend forecast for 2020. These colors are soft tones that can blend well with one another in any design. In fact, their trend forecast seems to focus highly on pastel tones, which we saw a high demand for in 2014 to compliment the darker types of wood flooring (like ebony-stained wood), that had exploded in popularity.
When they describe the ten colors making up the palette for 2020, they mention that these colors will “lighten up” any Modern design. We definitely agree that the colors chosen reflect a light and airy nature, and they will, in our opinion, provide a flawless, soft backdrop to any wood floor design.
