Incorporate The Pantone Color of the Year Into Your Home

Ahead of the start of the new year, The Pantone Color Institute announced the highly anticipated new Color of the Year. Evoking emotions of serenity, comfort and well-being, the chosen color of 2020 is Classic Blue – a timeless, versatile bridge into the start of a new decade. Calling to mind today’s movement towards self-care with its peaceful, meditative hue, Classic Blue can be a wonderful and meaningful addition to the palette of your home’s interior design. And don’t think that “classic” means boring or tired. This luscious, rich tone can add a striking pop of color against a warm neutral palette for a look that is definitely on trend, but also has lasting appeal.    


When you are ready for a dash of Classic Blue at home, there are lots of opportunities to explore! For a bold statement, use Classic Blue on a single accent wall for a pop of color to create interest without going overboard.

For smaller, less permanent touches, Classic Blue can make a great color for wall art, pillows, bedding or accent furniture like a comfy armchair. Pair with bold geometrics and clean lines for a modern look or with a sun-washed palette of soft neutrals for a touch of sophisticated coastal relaxation.

Classic Blue is also a great color for spaces that invite comfort, connection and conversation like the kitchen or dining room. Add a modest touch with furniture or consider adding a splash to backsplash tile or as a feature on the kitchen island.

When it comes to self-care, create a haven for relaxation in a spa bath by pairing touches of Classic Blue with an indulgent soaking tub.
