The early days of spring are some of the best in the year. The sun is out, there’s a hint of warmth in the air, and the first crocuses have made their way through the thawing earth. No matter what the temperature actually is outside, you’ve been reminded that warmer weather is on its way, and that the winter doldrums are almost over. The best way to celebrate this welcome change of season? With a spring home refresh, of course.
One of the easiest ways to update your space for spring is to tweak its color palette. To find the prettiest spring colors of 2020, we asked interior designers and home experts which hues they were most excited about this year. Whether you use these colors to paint the walls or simply include them in a bright spring centerpiece, these shades will invigorate your space and help you spring into spring.
Ever since the “millennial pink” craze began around 2016, blush has been a popular year-round color — but obviously, it’s got a particular allure in spring. “One of our favorite color combos for spring is white, camel/taupe, and soft pink,” says Bria Hammel of Bria Hammel Interiors. “It’s such a timeless color palette because of its neutrality, but it also provides a bit of warmth and subtle color to a space without going too over the top.”
A bright blue was Pantone’s Color of the Year, so you’ll see it everywhere this year. It works particularly well when paired with green, as the colors remind us of the great outdoors. “Both of these colors are so versatile and can work as an accent wall in a dark tone, as a pop of color in pillows or a rug, or even as a statement sofa in your space,” says Lee Mayer, CEO of the online interior design service Havenly. “Depending on the tones and fabrics you choose, both of these colors can play into any style really well — an emerald velvet sofa can feel really luxe while blue linen pillows can feel perfectly classic.”
