Blue is the New Grey
The 2020 Pantone Color of the year is Classic Blue, a totally versatile and sophisticated color! This classic blue provides the perfect amount of contrast for interiors and exteriors in both traditional and modern home styles. Whether a kitchen island gets a quick upgrade or a room gets a dramatic new look with contrasting white trim woodwork, the shade provides a stately look without going completely black.

Engage Your Senses
Smell, touch, sound: all of these elements can promote calm, and are just as important as the visual design of a room. Texture always helps to create a richer experience of a space and helps create a relaxing space because it engages our sense of touch and requires our brains to slow down and engage at the scale of the fingertip.
