PANTONE’S COLOUR OF THE YEAR 2020
Drumroll please….Pantone has chosen Classic Blue as the Colour of 2020. Those of you who read the previous post will know that Classic Blue was one of the colours that made up the Spring/Summer 2020 NYFW Colour Palette (read more here). Unlike the Dulux Colour of the Year, ‘Tranquil Dawn’, which is a calmer and more subdued colour, the Classic Blue is a lot deeper, richer and vibrant.
Pantone describes this colour as ‘timeless’ and ‘elegant’. It is versatile enough to complement most hues and can be considered a classic. I personally really like this colour - enough to use it in my living room! (In case you are wondering, I decorated the room three years ago; not in response to Pantone’s announcement.)
My living room wallpaper…I like bright and vibrant colours….can you tell?!
Although Classic Blue works well with most colours, there are certain pairings that are more striking than others. Here is my moodboard pairing colours that I think work well with the Classic Blue.
As always, I want to hear what you think - what colour would you pair Classic Blue with? Get in touch :)
