Home Design Embracing the 2020 Color of the Year
February 10, 2020
Each year Pantone announces its color of the year, and this year's selection is Classic Blue. Here at Ideal Homes, we've already seen this color trending in home design and we enjoyed seeing it pop up in new products at the International Builders Show. However, classic blue isn't the only color we've noticed making a statement recently. Other bold jewel tones, such as emerald green, marigold, and sapphire blue are also gaining in popularity. While whites, grays, and other neutrals, aren't going to disappear anytime soon, we're seeing more bold colors making their way back into design. So don't be afraid to add a splash of color! You can use this year's Pantone color or other bold colors as an accent with pillows, decor, rugs, or curtains, or go bold and use it on walls or cabinets as our designer has done in our Native Plains model home. The Pantone website states: Instilling calm, confidence, and connection, this enduring blue hue highlights our desire for a dependable and stable foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era. So no matter, whether you want to use a small amount or go bold, look for ways you can incorporate color in your design.
