Bring balance into 2020 with the Sherwin-Williams Colormix Forecast.


The use of color in home design is evolving as we enter a new decade. 2020 promises to be an empowering year of change, focused on colors that bring joy, serenity, and clarity. People continue to move beyond how spaces look and toward how they make them feel. Sherwin-Williams 2020 Colormix Forecast identifies five inspirational palettes — Alive, Mantra, Play, Haven and Heart — that help pave the way for wellness and self-nurturing in today’s new interiors. We have shown three palettes in previous months and now here is a look at the last two, Play and Haven:


This energetic and clever palette exudes charm through buoyant, playful color. Anchored by a fresh Pure White (SW 7005), it’s accompanied with surprising pops of bright pink, aqua and gold balanced with monochromatic neutrals. Its mission is to add joy and warmth to every space it touches. Homeowners can pair Play with unique lighting, fun patterns, and varied textures.





This nature-inspired palette beckons to those who seek to transform a space into an oasis. Drawing upon Earth’s seasonal cycles, it features rich tones like Kingdom Gold (SW 6698) but also subtle shades of sea, sand, forest and sky to organically bring the outdoors in. Homeowners can extend Haven’s impact in homes through sustainably sourced materials.


The unique tones and stories in the 2020 Colormix Forecast are meant to inspire future projects and help designers and homeowners alike bring exciting aesthetics into their spaces.
