It is the opportunity to understand which factors are driving the color directions for 2020+.
The first trend, evolving eclecticism, is about choosing neutral colors, however adding always a bright color to pop. Orange, medium pink and pale blue will be the top chosen ones. A colorful place attracts more people, and usually, they feel safer rather then in a neutral color room. The interesting thing is that people are more motivated when seeing bright colors, but when taking decisions, for example, the colors to use on their home décor, they usually go for neutral colors.

“I do think warmer tones will start to outpace the greys. I think brown is going to be fashionable again, just because it’s warm and classic. It reminds us of things that have been around forever which is comforting, like silver and gold.”—Liz Caan, principal of Liz Caan & Co.
“We’re noticing an increased interest in deeper, richer colors such as deep ambers, greens, and carnelian red, along with softer textures and more pattern, which we expect to emerge as strong trends in 2021.We also expect to see a return to layered patterns and color in the new year, as well as more embellishment. Design will become more detail oriented and embellished in 2021, and we’ll see luxury in little pieces making big statements. For example, embroidery in sparring detail and embellishments on fabrics and even wallpaper.”—Stacy Waggoner, founder of Studio Four NYC
