Prints Charming

“Color and design trends for home furnishings in 2020 reveal a fascinating dichotomy as a new era brings in both novel and nostalgic approaches to design. The fascination of tattooing as an art form is featured in Prints Charming, a cheeky and irreverent color story where modern day meets old master … Creative and confident, a sensual and fun color palette with pure animal magnetism.” — Laurie Pressman, vice president of the Pantone Color Institute

The interest in tattooing as an art form has grown considerably over the years, lessening the taboo of body art. Whether you like it or not, that fact is highlighted in “Prints Charming,” the 2020 collection of color and design trends for home furnishings. A rich color palette showcases a “playful co-mingling of traditional themes and modern-day usages,” according to an article from the Pantone Color Institute.

Imagine your grandmother’s prize tapestry meets your millennial neighbor’s sleeve of tattoos. The rich and swirling patterns are bold, sampling from historical collages to modern tattoo motifs and include bold and muted colors. Jet Black and Antique White give the palette a solid foundation, while Popcorn Yellow, Chrysanthemum and Cobalt Blue make for a bold statement, alongside more calming colors like Wheat, Rose of Sharon and Green Bay.
