Behr’s 2020 Colour of the Year is Back to Nature

With only a few months left in 2019, Behr is first out of the gate with their 2020 Colour of the Year announcement.

Back to Nature S340-4 is a restorative and meadow-inspired green, reflective of the shades found in nature. This ‘new neutral’ is meant to bring the soothing feeling of the outdoors into your home.

This fresh and slightly yellow-based green serves as an ideal backdrop to satisfy the desire for a soft landing at home and reflects societal trends toward embracing the outdoors as a collective and personal self-care activity. Back To Nature’s universal appeal and willingness to coexist with other hues make it a great option for adding peace and tranquility to any space.

Back to Nature – Perfect for the mudroom

Back To Nature signifies new life and awakenings, imparting a feeling of vitality. One of the easiest ways to create a space you love is to use color that evokes certain moods or feelings. Back To Nature acts as a grounding “new neutral,” providing the perfect backdrop to satisfy society’s desire for peace and tranquility at home.
