Pantone color for custom home design

Pantone calls the color restful, timeless and enduring, and says it’s the perfect antidote to today’s frenzied world. So where to use this blue hue in your custom home? Try these ideas: 

Custom cabinetry. Is our love affair with the all-white kitchen coming to an end? You might consider adding a touch of Classic Blue in your cabinetry. An accent color on the base cabinets of your kitchen island adds a distinctive touch.

Tile in true blue. Consider adding this watery hue to your custom home design when choosing tiles for your bathroom. If you’d like a quick hit of this classic blue color, look for new towels or bath mats for your current bathrooms.

Paint makes it pop. A deep color like Classic Blue can make any room feel intimate and cozy. You can also use Classic Blue on one wall for a crisp accent. Sherwin Williams has named their color “Naval” the color of the year.
