At the end of every year I look forward to Pantone announcing its Color of the Year. Classic Blue is the honored color for 2020 and following you’ll find inspirational ways to use it in your home.
Classic Blue is a calming, confident hue that “highlights our desire for a dependable and stable foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era.”
Do you have a collection of white ironstone or other white dishes? Look how great white looks in a cabinet painted a classic blue. I don’t think any other color can make white tableware pop like this.
My first kitchen was a classic blue and white cottage style kitchen – but the blue had a touch more green in it. Blue tends to be a popular color for country kitchens. If it’s too much for you, consider painting just the kitchen island.
Blue always looks great with yellow and this rich shade of blue really makes the custom cabinetry stand out.
Pantone Classic Blue doesn’t have to be limited to walls and cabinetry. Use it on fabrics like this pretty shade shown in a more contemporary dining room.
A traditional living room enjoys a blue sofa with a blue tiled fireplace. Just beyond the French door on the right, you get a glimpse of a blue room. Probably a den, which looks quite cozy.
Consider adding a coat of classic blue to your front door. If you have a white house and don’t mind painting, it might be fun to switch your front door every year to the Color of the Year (okay, maybe that’s a bit over-enthusiastic).
Even an interior door looks beautiful in blue.
Are you a fan of more feminine rooms? Classic blue looks soft and pretty in an English Country living room.
So what do you think of Pantone’s choice of Classic Blue as the Color of the Year for 2020? Are you a fan?
