Are you curious about the color trends for 2020? Every year, paint companies like Sherwin Williams and Behr predict popular colors for the upcoming year. Sherwin Williams has released its color trends for 2020 in the form of five welcoming categories: Mantra, Play, Heart, Alive, Play and Haven. Design is anything but one size fits all, and these palettes appeal to people based on their personality. Below, we share window treatment ideas to compliment these five palettes, whether you’re a fan of Mantra, Play, Heart, Alive, Play and Haven!


If you’re drawn to the Mantra palette, then chances are you’re a fan of simple, yet elegant design. With colors like “Breathless” and “Misty”, this color palette glides from warm to cool tones creating the perfect combination of softly muted neutrals. For this minimalist, yet modern color palette we suggest a sleek window treatment such as roller shades. Roller shades are available in light filtering or room darkening options, offering you control of how much natural light you want to let into the space.


Inspired by Earth’s seasonal cycles, the Haven Palette gives the feeling of an oasis getaway. Haven features richly subtle shades of sea, sand, forest, and sky – offering an innate reminder that sometimes real beauty lies in the spaces outside. The perfect window treatment to match this palette is natural woven shades – giving your home the natural texture and beauty of the outdoors. Pair natural woven shades with some “Acacia Haze” colored cabinets and you’re sure to feel like you’re at a beautiful outdoor retreat all year round.


In the Alive Palette, nurturing neutrals are artfully arranged with rich blues and a deep, ripe olive, evoking a satisfying and rejuvenating sense of community and living well. With colors like “tassel” and “endless sea”, these colors are sure to create a happy, calm environment for you to enjoy. To match this palette, we suggest a sold pair of cellular shades, allowing you to maximize natural light while still protecting your furniture from harmful sun rays during the hottest parts of the day.


If you’re drawn to the Play Palette with colors like “Eros Pink” and “Aquarium” then chances are, you’re not afraid to make a statement. To make the space visually interesting, consider statement window treatments like boldly patterned Oceanside draperies paired with eclectic Gambol Gold decor. At ABC Blind & Drapery, we provide you with access to a professional designer that will help you choose a fabric that looks as if it was made with the Play Palette in mind.


On the opposite end of the spectrum from the Play Palette is the Heart Palette, with colors like “Original White” and “Diverse Beige” that create a relaxed, comfortable space. From silky earth tones to clove and soft coral, these colors are complemented by simple window treatments that blend with your decor, such as light and airy draperies or classic interior shutters.
