Blush pink started to trickle into the design scene last year, but now it’s in full flow. Whether you want to go big and paint this bashful shade all over your kitchen cabinets or bathroom walls or want to be subtle about it and highlight a few key areas of your kitchen, this soft, romantic hue will gracefully transform your space.

On a side note, we’ve noticed that the combination of pink and grey is wildly popular this year. So, if you’d like to create a bit of contrast or add more depth to your kitchen design, then this pairing is a hit.

Although grey is a neutral that won’t quickly fade out of favour, 2020 kitchen and bathroom colour trends are revealing new and interesting ways to play with this classic colour. From concrete textures to monochromatic palettes, there are plenty of ways to incorporate whichever shade of grey you like into your home.


Bold Blues

Cool blues are so last decade! This new decade comes with a new, bold attitude and leans towards using royal and navy blues in the kitchen or bathroom. To temper this dramatic hue, you’d do well to mix in some cool whites.


Burnt Orange

Keeping in line with the bold attitude of 2020 colour trends, burnt orange has moved to the centre stage of bathroom and kitchen design. If you’re looking to heat up your home interiors, then a lick of this warm, energetic colour may just do the trick. But be warned, this colour can quickly become overpowering, which is why it’s a good idea to balance it with a fair portion of classic white or grey midtones.
