How to Use the Color of the Year in Your Home

By on

Your friends and family will be green with envy when you incorporate Lush, our 2020 color of the year into your home. Inspired by fashion and current home trends, Lush fits into the sage color family. It has a crisp, clean feel, yet it can be used as a warm neutral when combined with light colors like off-white and beige. Get design tips, inspiration and discover how you can use Mannington’s color of the year below.

Home Décor Styles

Lush will work with a variety of home décor styles but we think Contemporary, Modern and Coastal are best suited for this green-gray hue.



If you’re looking for new flooring, Mannington has a floor for every trend, color and style. With an adaptable color like Lush, the possibilities are endless. Flooring in nearly any shade, like grey, taupe or brown and style, like tile, hardwood or shiplap, would complement Lush perfectly. We selected our favorite floors below that are perfect matches for Lush.

Color Palettes

When paired with neutrals, like off-white and taupe, Lush really popsespecially in a Coastal style home as seen in our trend board below. If you’re looking to add a sense of drama to a room, try a monochromatic color scheme with various shades of green or pair Lush with black tones. If you prefer a wider color palette range, you can add muted blues and salmons to rooms that feature Lush. These colors play off each other without being loud or distracting.

Design Tips

Since Lush already has a natural look and feel, use natural elements when designing and decorating your home. Wood finishes will work everywhere from the floors to your end tables. Additionally, suede, velvet, leather and wool are other fabrics that add texture to your room and complement the masculine color.


When it comes to where, you can use Lush in many places like on your walls, furniture, art, pillows, curtains, plants and more. How much of Lush you want to feature is up to you! You can incorporate a monochromatic color scheme or use it as pops of color. Either way, Lush is sure to bring style and life to your home.
