Although we might still be stuck under winter’s terrifying reign, fear not. Spring is on its way. In just a month, the warmer weather will start, and if you have spring cleaning plans, you might also have an itch to redecorate. If that’s you, 2020’s paint trends might be a good place to start.

Homes & Gardens spoke with interior design trend experts about the most popular colors for the upcoming year, and some of the shades might come as a surprise. The list is a mix of more traditional hues and bold, unique tones that are suited for those looking to try a more daring look. From chocolate brown walls to mint green, the trends run the gamut, but one is noted particularly for its alignment with spring.

According to Better Home & Gardens experts, powder blue is the color you need to incorporate into your home for spring. The magazine explains:

A shade that’s always been popular in the world of interiors, soft blue is set to be spring’s colour du jour. Powder Blue, the offering from Crown, has the quality of being both soothing and invigorating and offers plenty of design versatility. Used with crisp white, it creates a calming coastal feel, while as one block of colour it can be an enveloping breath of fresh air. Of course, its natural home is with other pastels, such as barely-there lemon and delicate pink, but for a more contemporary edge earthy shades like rust and terracotta will make this colour sing.
