Bright and vibrant Living Coral, last year’s Pantone Color of the Year, has given way to the calm and soothing effects of “Classic Blue” for 2020. In a world full of divisiveness and upheaval, Pantone seeks to weave an aura of stability and connection into this year’s color palette. According to Pantone, “Instilling calm, confidence, and connection, this enduring blue hue highlights our desire for a dependable and stable foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era.”
Every year, designers and manufacturers look to the Pantone Color of the Year as inspiration for products, packaging, paint colors and decor items. Classic Blue, calling to mind the Dark Sky of our own beloved Fountain Hills, offers a tranquil oasis away from the discord of the surrounding world. Both soothing and reflective, this color promises a respite you can come home to every single day.
If this color appeals to you, there are many ways you can incorporate the color into your decor, from small investments into pillows, paint, and decor, to larger investments such as appliances and cabinets. Houzz.com offers some ideas on how you can use the color, from bold statements to subtle accents.
For the last two decades, Pantone’s Color of the Year has exerted major influencer for numerous industries, including fashion, home decor, and advertising. Color experts from the Pantone Color Institute gather information from numerous sources all over the world, including art, fashion, travel, world events, technology, and lifestyles. This intensive research yields a handful of colors that represent the “mood” of the coming year. Pantone’s team then chooses the color that will become a catalyst for designers and decorators to spark their ideas.
