This year, the people at Pantone who are all things color for defining colors by number internationally and for many decades..have chosen the Color of the Year for 2020 to be Classic Blue. Color experts are predicting you will see it welcomed in every venue from weddings to living room pillows, bedroom walls, kitchen utensils.
A return to nature....the new color is cast as a stable and calming "return to nature" and the sea as we all prepare to usher in a new decade. It can provide a contrast to the neutral shades of gray we see throughout interior design.
Writing about this "classic choice" the Pantone Institute says:"...the color is one “instilling calm, confidence and connection.” It’s an “enduring blue hue” and it provides stability “as we cross the threshold into a new era.”
A classic blue cocktail was served when Pantone made their announcement...mmmm. You may even see this at your favorite restaurant in the new year.
Is there anything better than a blue popscicle on a warm summer day ? You will be right in style for this year ! Have to say it is one of our very favorite flavors ! A great way to celebrate summer too !
Pantone's color choice are a bit more traditional than we find with some of the major paint manufacturers. Earlier we told you about Sherwin Williams Choice which is Naval and also blue of course (see it here) and is meant to reflect a calmness and peace....a new decade of calm...mmmmm...
