February 19, 2020

Rolling into another new year means that Pantone, Inc. has to decide on another color of the year. This year, they decided to go with a well-known color that is close to our heart here at Eastwood Homes, Classic Blue!

COLOR SWATCH BREAKDOWN FOR 2020 PANTONE COLOR OF THE YEAR

PMS: PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue

RGB: R: 15 G: 76 B: 129
HEX: 0F4C81

Classic Blue is described as a timeless color that brings elegance and simplicity when used and we couldn’t agree more. We love blue tones at Eastwood not only because it is part of our core colors in our logo and branding but because it brings a feeling of peace and calmness.

Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of The Pantone Color Institute says, “We are living in a time that requires trust and faith. It is this kind of constancy and confidence that is expressed by PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue, a solid and dependable blue hue we can always rely on. Imbued with a deep romance, Classic Blue provides an anchoring foundation. A boundless blue evocative of the vast and infinite evening sky, Classic Blue encourages us to look beyond the obvious to expand our thinking; challenging us to think more deeply, increase our perspective and open the flow of communication.”

We think Classic Blue will look great throughout a home so here are a few ideas of how you can use Pantone, Inc. 2020 color of the year!

Give any room a face lift with a Classic Blue accent wall. You can do this in a living room, a bed room or even an office! Making that one wall pop will really bring the space to life without having to do to much decorating!

If you have built-ins or any bookshelf’s in your home, we love the idea of painting these pieces a bold color to really make them stand out and give the room some character. Classic Blue would be a perfect choice for this because as we said it is truly a timeless color!

Feeling bold? Take a bit of a risk and go Classic Blue in your kitchen! These cabinets are some of the most beautiful and unique we’ve seen and we love it. Your guests will leave thinking they should paint their cabinets too.
