20 Colors of the Year For 2020 and Matching Home Decor

Paint companies and color experts have released their picks for the 2020 color of the year. See which shades made the list.

Anyone who has ever embarked on a paint and decorating project for a room in their home or office knows color is paramount to the design outcome of that particular space. Pick the wrong color & everything, from the your furnishings to your artwork, can appear unbalanced or incomplete. Meanwhile, the right color can add an extra layer of joy, peace, and / or comfort to the room or area.

For years paint companies and industry expects have participated in an exciting tradition of choosing a hue that they declare is their Color of the Year and with 2020 being a new era there was no exceptions this year. They choose their hues based on industry trends, social issues and interviews, in order to help us “the consumers” make educated decisions when it comes to creating the perfect interior spaces that we will utilize for years.

This year after seeing the spread of colors that have been released it seems that all of the color pros were all focused on the same idea, peacefulness and serenity that will enhance our overall well being.

Fluid Artwork; A creative Activity The Family Can Enjoy

Sorry for the lack of post these past several months. I was in yet another car accident and have been working diligently to get back up to par afterwards. One of the issues I’ve been facing is depression because of the pain and the temporary lack of abilities. I sustained lower back and neck injuries so travel, hiking, and carrying my camera bag were put on hold for a while. Because I’ve been home bound and battling depression, I’ve tried a variety things to keep my mind and creative juices flowing in a positive and create direction. One of the activities actually got my family involved :)…I love family time!

I came across a video about Dirty Paint Pours also known as Fluid Art and liked what I saw; so I went to the local art store and picked up some canvas boards and a variety of paint colors. when I got home I immediately set up my kitchen island as a work station and started mixing the colors for my first fluid art project. At first it was just an activity for me to try but as my family came home from work things began to change. Honestly, they all looked at me kinda funny until I showed them how to do it. They were surprised as the flow of the paint poured out of the cup and the bursts of color that was manipulated as the canvas board was tilted in different directions; they instantly wanted to try for themselves. It’s a good thing I couldn’t decide on what colors to buy that day at the store; I ended up with what I thought was too much paint lol.

Within an hour my daughter and her boyfriend, my hubby, my mom, my sister-in-law and niece who had stopped by were all getting their hands into the paint, creating, laughing and joking, and enjoying each others company. Each one of them tried it and were amazed at the results that they had created. They enjoyed it so much that I stopped creating mine and started snapping photos of them creating their own artwork. I’m so happy that one simple little activity created not only beautiful pieces of artwork but also memories that will last a lifetime.

The results are now dry and were able to be photographed. Here are some of results of the different pours. If you would like to see all of the resulting paint pours, photographic reproduction are available for viewing and  purchase on our website.
