 The annual Sherwin-Williams Designer Panel interviewed 250 top interior designers and decorators, and they predicted three popular trends that will be going out of style in 2020

  • 1All-White or All-Gray Decor: The designers said these looks are "too sterile and cold" for everyday living, and that gray will become more of an accent color. 
  • 2. Farmhouse Style:  Say goodbye to shiplap, barn doors, Shaker-style cabinets, and signs with words on them. 
  • 3. Bold Accent Walls: Top designers believe these will go away as well
