Let’s recap a little bit Pantone choices for last years.
We had in 2017 Greenery Reigned Supreme, indulging our love of plants.
2018 shade was a Grapey Purple Dubbed Ultra Violet while 2019 represented Living Coral.
All those shades were used massively in Interior Design & Fashion, furniture accessories and so on.
The 2020 Pantone Color of the Year has been announced in December 2019 and we are really happy that it is Classic Blue as we was adding this color accent in our interiors from 2018, and we think you’re going to like it.
While blue is most people’s favorite color, this particular shade is “timeless and enduring” and “elegant in its simplicity.”
“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,” Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, says in a press release.
While we feel Classic Blue is safe, its not boring. We can easily add this color in a mid-tone hue tempting neutral space. Even your home bursting with color, this shade plays nicely with others.
When it comes to home decor, Pantone confirms that there are many possibilities for the 2020 color: “Classic Blue injects creative confidence into interiors, transforming a space through unique color combinations and tonal statements. Easily applied across so many different materials, textures and finishes, PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue is a dependable blue that can take you in different directions expressing tradition and elegance as well as unexpected boldness.”
