It’s always exciting to hear of the latest Color of the Year. And, as you can imagine it’s the hot topic in the interior design field. Every design firm and lunch meeting held touches on this topic. It’s exciting to hear who is going to use it, how and in what type of space. Personally, my favorite way to think of the selected colors is how it will affect the Feng Shui or energy of the space. Will it bring a sense of action or calm? Maybe a feeling of high or low?
I personally have always been a fan of blue. I love any watery blue tone! If you’re like me than you’ll be excited to hear that Pantone has selected Classic Blue (19-4052) as its color of the year for 2020. This classic beautiful blue tone is sure to bring a flowing, creative feeling to your space.
Ready for a blue that I find to be exquisite? Sherwin Williams announced their Color of the Year as Naval 6244. This deeper shade of blue is perfect for a bit subdued energy yet still creative and inspiring.
Benjamin Moore went a different route this year and opted for a pretty rosy color called First Light 2102-70. They describe it as a “backdrop for a bright new decade” and I’m all for that. This color while still pale is going to bring a more energetic and focused energy to your space. I love the idea of adding this as an accent wall in a white room.
Let these colors inspire you and try a color that might be new to you. If you're not normally a blue fan, experiment with a few touches. Not sure about First Light? Opt for an accent wall like the image above.
Go for it, it’s a new decade after all!!!
