Well-Lived: Color Trends for 2020 and Beyond

Softness in color and tactile materials drive designs that nurture the spirit. The feel of a surface is as important as its look and must appeal to all of our senses — First Light, Golden Straw, Crystalline, Individual White, and Light Drizzle are colors that embody this mood.

What’s Driving the Color Schemes?

Whether at home, work or out in the world, we seek spaces where we can be ourselves to do and dream. To confidently breathe in life and calmly exhale our truth. We desire authenticity and ease in all that is essential to life.

How is this Trend Influencing Design?

Design goes beyond “form follows function” as materials and technology are integrated to produce designs focused on well-being. Using what scientists have learned about how visual aesthetics can impact our brains and physiology, designers employ color, lighting, sounds, scents, and textures to stimulate our senses.
