Ready for sunshine? The early days of spring can be some of the best in the year. The sun peaks through the clouds, warm weather begins, and the first flowers of the season make their way through the dirt. The temperature outside might still be warming up, the weather might still be cold, but we’re reminded that warm weather is on the way and the winter season is behind us.
This spring, people are particularly drawn to the invigorating sense of freedom that comes with the ending of the colder seasons and are spending more time outdoors than ever. While temperatures may still be cold outside despite the changing of the seasons, you can invite the colorful season into your home no matter what the weather outside offers.
Looking to welcome and celebrate the change of season? A spring home refresh just might be on the menu with the help of contemporary spring colors. Painting a wall, finding inspiration from a colorful kitchen appliance, or even including fresh flowers in a bright spring centerpiece can help welcome the season and liven up your space.

Greens, Blues, and Grays
The season of spring brings awakening to the natural beauty of Mother Nature, found in wildflowers, bright blue skies, and fresh grass and leaves that sprout from a sometimes drab winter landscape. Nature shines in full force during spring, and the colors that arrive with the changing of the seasons are a welcomed transformation. Green and blue work as both accent colors and color schemes, inviting the freshness of the season into your home and refreshing the space, bringing nature into your home for an invigorating escape.
Nothing represents the season of spring quite like an airy green, a versatile shade that can take on many different tones and textures. Contemporary colors for spring include soft, muted sage greens that feel fresh and organic, with the ability to take on both masculine and feminine spaces. Pale greens are also on the menu for spring, or deep greens with slightly brown tones that take on an earthy aesthetic. Pair greens in your kitchen with indoor plants for a colorful celebration of the spring season.
An elegant, vivid blue was Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2020, a timeless blue that is said to be suggestive of the sky at dusk. Robins egg blue, another popular spring color, is also on the color palette for contemporary spring colors. These blues pair well with green shades, reminding us of the great outdoors and providing a versatality that add a dose of cool tones to your kitchen.
Cool tone gray shades are also welcomed for Spring 2020, reminding us of organic shades found in nature and tying the space closer to the natural tones of the earth.
