THE SCANDINAVIAN INTERIOR COLOUR TRENDS OF 2020 FROM JOTUN LADY

^ LADY 4863 Statement Blue & 2024 Senses

Every year, Norwegian paint company Jotun release their new collection which predicts the colour trends for the coming year. This time they are celebrating the new decade by launching twelve new colours matched with eight timeless hues. Each of them with a distinct character and its own personality, helping you creating unique atmospheres in your home. The new colours combinations give a multitude of harmonious options, for a beautiful and personal interior style.

According to Jotun, colours have a great influence on our well-being, and therefore an important part of creating spaces for good experiences and balance in life. The beautiful new collection was developed by the Global Colour Manager Lisbeth Larsen in collaboration with photographer Line Thit Klein and Jotun’s permanent and internationally renowned stylist duo Kråkvik & D’Orazio.

“2020 represents a whole new decade. Many of us want to make some changes in life, learn something new, travel or just daydream a little more. Anyway; a good place to start is at home in our own environment,” says Lisbeth Larsen.

“When designing a new colour, we always ask ourselves what we want the colour to express,” says Larsen. Because it is about more than a new colour – it is about interpreting trends in society and what will be important to people in the time to come.

    I love the richness of these colors – and they’re all fabulous. But if used under Mediterranean light then you need to use them after very careful planning. I would probably mix some ‘Statement Blue’ with a lots of ‘Curious Mind’ and accents of ‘Exhale’ to keep it edgy, modern and easy on the eyes even under Mediterranean light! xo
