Owens Corning Color of the Year
We know you’ve been twiddling your thumbs in anticipation like we have, so we’re pleased to announce that Owens Corning has finally announced their 2020 Shingles Color of the Year: Pacific Wave. This tranquil combination of blues and slate grays is consistently popping up across the spectrum of home decor and design trends and we couldn’t be more excited about it.
Owens Corning is known for their trendsetting design combinations. The 2020 Shingle Color of the Year Pacific Wave is the fourth Owens Corning selection, following Black Sable in 2019, Sand Dune in 2018 and Sedona Canyon in 2017.
“Disrupting conventional approaches to blue and gray shingles, Pacific Wave was inspired by the deep, powerful and constantly shifting hues of the ocean,” the brand said in a debut release. “Pale blue mixed with dark and light gray granules add dimension that can achieve a relaxed, coastal vibe or a strong, stately look. Pacific Wave elevates standard gray shingles to a whole new level.”
“Pacific Wave is a color that people unexpectedly fall in love with,” said Sue Burkett, Owens Corning Roofing Strategic Marketing Manager. “Blue is a calming and serene color; yet it’s also strong and powerful. Many people who love blue hesitate to use it as a roof color choice, but they soon discover how exciting and versatile Pacific Wave is with a wide range of architecture and style. It’s a surprise and delight when they see all of the possibilities Pacific Wave brings to a home’s exterior. Pacific Wave was chosen based on its versatility and how it complements present and emerging housing and interior trends,” Burkett said. “Whether topping off a cozy ranch in the Pacific Northwest, a modern farmhouse in the Midwest or the stately elegance of a brick colonial home in the South, Pacific Wave brings curb appeal and style to America’s home exteriors.”
Along with the color of the year announcement, Owens Corning Roofing released a full brochure on roof and exterior color pairings showcasing three different looks. Style spotlights, Coastal, Colonial Revival and West Coast Contemporary, each offer complimentary style ideas, color palettes and decor inspirations. It’s easier than ever for homeowners to get creative in their colors and design concepts.
