Behr Paint released its 2020 Color of the Year as Back to Nature, a “restorative, meadow-inspired green” that’s meant to connect us with the outdoors and promote balance within the home.
“As we look ahead to a new decade, Back To Nature encourages us to reengage with the natural world, which we know can have a real, positive impact on our well-being,” Erika Woelfel, vice president of color and creative services, says in a press release. “Everyone has a different way of engaging with nature. Whether you’re biking on a forest path, canoeing on a lake or walking on the beach, green is prevalent in nearly every outdoor landscape—it is easily nature’s favorite color.”
Along with selecting this natural shade of green as its color of the year, Behr Paint also announced its 2020 Color Trends palette, which features an encapsulating selection of 15 colors that you can use in any space of your home.
“Back To Nature serves as the cornerstone to this collection,” says Woelfel. “It can work hand in hand with simple or maximal styling, whether your goal is to transform kitchen cabinetry with a new neutral look that feels unique and fresh, or simply make a small space feel more open and airy.”
