Three paint companies have already revealed their 2020 color trends, and they’re forecasting the rise of calm and serene colors and the fall of neutrals, Forbes reports.

Sherwin-Williams revealed 45 hues in five palettes, all colors that are meant to bring joy, serenity and focus to the mind, body and spirit.

“We expect 2020 to be an empowering year of change that will focus on bringing your best self into the new decade,” says Sue Wadden, director of color marketing at Sherwin-Williams. “Homeowners and designers alike are seeking warmth—colors that feel human and natural.
