Pantone has announced it’s highly anticipated color of the year for 2020, Classic Blue. With this color, Pantone hopes to instill “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.” Seeing as this color will certainly influence design trends in the coming months, we thought we’d get a head start on ways to incorporate this classic hue into your home. 

Be Bold

At first, you may think that Pantone’s color of the year falls flat. Its name and hue, Classic Blue, are hardly as exciting as 2019’s showy Living Coral. However, this classic shade’s muted tone gives consumers the opportunity to go big and bold. Rather than painting an accent wall or adding small elements to a room, think big and paint an entire room in this rich, classic hue. Paired with bright and dainty furniture, Classic Blue is the perfect color to capture guest’s attention and draw them in. 

Unsuspecting Pops of Color

This blue is for homeowners looking to add pops of color in unsuspecting places. Pantone’s selection makes for the perfect shade for brightening up bathroom floors or kitchen backsplashes. Take things outside by incorporating blue tile details in swimming pools, walkways, or outdoor kitchens. Being such a classic and simple color, the opportunities to incorporate it into your home are endless.

“We are living in a time that requires trust and faith. It is this kind of constancy and confidence that is expressed by PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue, a solid and dependable blue hue we can always rely on. Imbued with a deep resonance, Classic Blue provides an anchoring foundation. A boundless blue evocative of the vast and infinite evening sky, Classic Blue encourages us to look beyond the obvious to expand our thinking; increase our perspective and open the flow of communication.” – Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of The Pantone Color Institute
