They may not know it, but the forecasters at Pantone hit on one of our most popular She Shades paint colors for its 2019/2020 Fashion Trend Color Report. One of the big colors for fall is Bluestone, with a restrained dusty shade that looks remarkably like the one we introduced a year ago with the exact same name.
The report noted that Bluestone (PANTONE 18-4217) is “a color of quiet resolve.”
You can see how close it is to our own Bluestone paint, which is a chalk-based paint formulated for exterior surfaces.
Bluestone makes a great trim color on doors and windows; it complements neutrals, burgundy, yellows and oranges. We used it on our Descanso shed to highlight a vintage garage door that was designed into the back wall.
What furniture or structure do you have that would benefit from a fashion-forward shade of Bluestone? We hope you try it!
