Blue has always been a favorite of mine. However, it’s never been a color that was easy to design with until now.
Sure, the blue and white accents were always a staple, but to create a room around any shade of blue was a challenge at best.
Last year I worked on a few displays and client rooms with various blue tones and I was so happy to hear Pantone named Classic Blue this year’s choice. The richness most shades of blue add to any space or accessory is timeless and calming. I’ve personally used blue in my downstairs guest bath, living and dining rooms.
‘Imprinted in our psyches as a restful color, PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue brings a sense of peace and tranquility to the human spirit, offering refuge. Aiding concentration and bringing laser like clarity, PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue re-centers our thoughts. A reflective blue tone, Classic Blue fosters resilience.’
Pantone Color of the Year 2020, Leatrice Eiseman Quote.
No matter how you choose to use any shade of blue, whether in design or fashion, just know it’s a beautiful, grounding, calming, interesting and very ‘classic’ color to use.
