The Pantone Colour of the Year 2020 is ‘Classic Blue’. According to Pantone’s official website, Classic Blue instils calm, confidence, and connection. This enduring blue hue highlights our desire for a dependable and stable foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era. “Classic Blue is a solid and dependable blue hue we can always rely on” Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Colour Institute.

The Monterey 40, one of Brighton’s most popular double storey Display Homes uses Classic Blue throughout the interior and exterior of the home, including wallpaper, tiles, furniture and the Hebel and cladding on the facade. The style of the Monterey is Classic Elegance with a touch of Hamptons. The home exudes Luxury, Elegance, Style and a sense of calm, particularly in the Master Bedroom, where a lot of the Classic Blue hue is comfortably embraced, creating relaxed interaction, honesty and the promise of protection, which is very important in a home.

“From an aesthetic perspective, the Classic Blue hue is present in The Monterey through the interior and exterior, showcasing a Luxurious, Nautical theme, however when we look at this hue from an emotional, psychological stand point, it depicts comfort and reliability which, at the end of the day is what we look for in a home”.
