From the bedroom to the living room, Classic Blue can be used to enhance a variety of settings. Paint your furniture in this bold tone or go for a Classic Blue wall backdrop. Simple decor items in this stylish shade are also a fine way to add a pop of colour to your interior this season.

It is a vivid contrast from 2019’s Pantone Colour of The Year: Living Coral and 2018’s Ultra Violet, but we think Classic Blue will certainly set the tone in 2020! After all, blue is a completely tranquil shade that pairs well in a calm, serene space. A trendy hue for the upcoming 2020 season ahead.

‘Classic Blue’ is the hue that many interior stylists will be setting their palettes to throughout the coming twelve months. Pantone describes the shade, which is lighter than navy and more muted than cobalt, as ‘a timeless and enduring hue elegant in its simplicity.’
