2020 Color of the Year

By Rebecca Wardon, Interior Design Manager

With every new year comes a new color of the year. Let’s take a look at some of the major paint suppliers’ color choices and talk about how you can best use these hues.

Pantone chose Classic Blue as their color of the year. According to their website, Classic Blue is a timeless shade that “highlights our desire for a dependable and stable foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era.” A perfectly confident color to start a new decade.

Sherwin-Williams chose Naval as their color of the year. Sherwin Williams calls Naval “a rich navy that creates a calm and grounding environment infused with quiet confidence.” As we enter the 2020s, Naval pays homage to the bold colors of the Art Deco movement that began in the 1920s.

Benjamin Moore chose First Light as their color of the year. It is “a soft, rosy hue blooming with potential.” First Light is a hopeful color and is to be paired with Benjamin Moore’s curated palette of airy neutrals to help revitalize your home as you enter a new year.


With calm, grounding blues and refreshing neutrals, all three paint suppliers chose colors reflecting the beginning of a new decade. But is painting the only way can you use these colors to bring these trendy colors into your home?
Of course not! Sure, the paint companies would love it if you repainted every year, but that’s definitely not the only way to utilize these colors. Bring them into your home in small splashes with furniture, cabinetry, accessories, art, rugs, fabrics, table settings, you name it. Minor changes can make your home feel totally refreshed and get you ready to take on 2020.


Here at Bielinski, we’re always thinking ahead. Since home building takes much longer than painting, we have to be more than just a few steps ahead. So, we set goals and mindsets for the future and we’re always looking for the next look or trend. If you want to check out some of the latest in design, check out our Digital Design Studio!

  • When we rightsized from our home of 43 years to a Bielinski Condo in Bay Pointe, our New Home Consultant answered all of our questions and communicated with us the entire way. We’re fully enjoying our beautiful new home and the condo community.
    John and Jean Jones
  • I’ve been so impressed and completely satisfied with the entire Bielinski building experience. From the initial sale and throughout the construction process I have appreciated Bielinski’s professionalism, craftsmanship, and follow-through.
    Heidi Hamilton
  • We are extremely happy with our new Bielinski Condo. It’s well-built and full of all the features we wanted in our home.
    Deborah and Brian Blackney
  • We chose Bielinski because they are a family-owned business and have been building in the Pewaukee area for a long time. The Clemont floor plan is just perfect for all of our family events and Packer parties.
    Bob and Darla Landgren
  • We couldn’t be happier with our new home! The entire process was fantastic. Everyone was so responsive and quick to help. Bielinski’s knowledge of the industry was invaluable. We recommend Bielinski to anyone looking for their next home.
    Mike and Kristin Smith
  • We had a really good experience with Bielinski from start to finish. Everyone was responsive and reliable. Now we are enjoying life in our new home.
    Peter Holzwart and Therese Gaynor-Holzwart
  • Once I got settled in, I knew I was exactly where I belong. Without Bielinski’s knowledge and communication, I would still be questioning whether I should build at all. Thanks to the entire team that made this all possible.
