Pantone: 19-4052 Classic Blue
"Instilling calm, confidence, and connection."
This color is as comfortable as your favorite pair of jeans! It looks great here in the kitchen, including the contemporary cabinets. This would be a daring choice for a kitchen remodel and definitely a good pick for a space themed bedroom.
Pratt & Lambert: Songbird 117C
"Crisp, clean and vibrant."
If you're looking for color that won't make your room look dark, Songbird would be a great choice. Try this color for a bathroom remodel to create a space that is clean and relaxing. Be brave and paint the bathroom cabinets in this soft blue/green with neutral walls.
Sherwin-Williams: Naval SW 6244
"Calm and grounding infused with quiet confidence."
The contrast provided with Naval and crisp white is striking! It has a timeless appeal that crosses any decor style. Look how nice it compliments the Songbird color above and the First Light below. Try this bold blue as a color for your front door!
Benjamin Moore: First Light 2102-70
"A fresh palette. A revitalized spirit. A soft, rosy hue blooming with potential."
Pink is often the choice for painting a little girl's room and First Light would be a great choice, but what about other rooms? It would be pleasant in a sun-room, as an accent wall in the dining, or a way to brighten up a remodeled attic space.
PPG: Chinese Porcelain PPG1160-6
"A blend of cobalt and moody, ink blue that imparts calmness and hopefulness."
If you want to create a calm space, Chinese Porcelain is a great choice. If you have a home remodel in your future that includes a master suite, here's the color for you. This relaxing blue would also work for a family room, guest room, or even the kitchen.
Behr Paint: Back to Nature S340-4
"A restorative and revitalizing green hue that engages the senses."
This natural green is very versatile and will pair nicely with many other colors. You'll find that it works inside and outside with success. If you want a fresh exterior color for your house, window trim, or deck rails, Back to Nature is a perfect choice.
Glidden: You choose!
"For real people, with real homes. You've totally got this."
Glidden chose not to have a color of the year for 2020 but to inspire people to explore the vast color trends they have to offer. No matter what colors you are attracted to, remember you can always bring home samples to try in your home's unique light. Maybe the colors from 2019 will be just fine!
3Rs Construction: Periwinkle Grey
Neutral and colorful at the same time. It will make you smile.
This blend of blue, purple, and grey can be a lot of fun for any room. Whether you are refreshing the paint color in your kitchen, or doing a home addition, this Periwinkle Grey and related hues will bring a welcome change. It's not a "real" paint color, but if you want something like it, check out the paint samples at your local home improvement store.
If you don't find your favorite color here, remember that you can always bring in color samples to your local paint stores. They have the ability to match colors from any item you have. Perhaps you have a decorative pillow with the most beautiful buttery yellow... bring it with you and see if they can make a sample jar for you.
Many paint stores also have paint chip decks for purchase. It's a great tool to take with you when shopping for home decor. Remember to check Pinterest for color pallet inspiration as well! Most of all, enjoy the process! The results will feel great!
