Think about things such as accent walls, tile choices, and paint. If you like this year’s Pantone color (or any from the past!), there are plenty of ways to integrate it into your custom home design.

 Executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, Leatrice Eiseman, said this hue of Classic Blue provides an anchoring foundation in a changing world.

 “We are living in a time that requires trust and faith. It is this kind of consistency and confidence that is expressed by PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue, a solid and dependable blue hue we can always rely on,” Eiseman said.

 As this new decade begins, you may consider anchoring your new home with this beautiful blue, whether you choose to include it in built-in features, or home decor.
