Color is one of of our favorite topics at Carlson’s! We are excited to share the colors that are sure have a huge impact in 2020! There’s a deep sense of balance in the colors that we will see dominate interior design, as they reflect wellness and nature.

Naval Blue

Voted as being the color of the year by Sherwin Williams, Naval is best described as a rich shade of navy blue.  Think navy blue mixed with slate grey. This rich and elegant color works well in the living room, dining room, and bedrooms, thanks in part to being one of the most relaxing colors.

For a bold look, we love seeing this deep shade of blue on the walls, but it works just as well on furniture and accent pieces. In the kitchen, try painting your lower cabinets a beautiful grey-navy with white upper cabinets. Or in an all-white kitchen, add a patterned navy blue backsplash for a bit of personality.



Meadow Green

Muted earthy colors have become the new neutral, and a hot neutral for the upcoming year is a muted meadow green. A softer more feminine take on olive green, pair this shade with white, brown, charcoal, and darker shades of green to complete the look.


Pale Pink

Flirty, feminine, and soft, pale pink is quickly becoming a mainstay in interior design. Not just in the rooms of young princesses, we’re seeing this color more and more in living rooms, bathrooms, and even adult bedrooms. To make pink a touch more masculine, mix in metal accents.


Burnt Orange

Reminiscent of cider and clay is burnt orange, which hits on the earthy, natural trend that is ever popular in the home. Pair this shade with shades of brown and white for an immediate pop of both color and personality.
