Color Game : True Blue / 2020 Pantone Color of the Year

Classic Blue, Pantone's color for 2020, is a great choice for the beginning of a decade. A clear, dark blue. Not indigo. Not cobalt. A Classic Blue used in interiors for decades. As Pantone's site states, "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." That's a lot to expect from a color. Let's take a look at some Classic Blue rooms to usher in the New Year.

Some rooms could easily use a bit of Classic Blue - love the lampshade.

Kitchen base cabinets in Classic Blue look fresh and modern.

In a spa-like white bedroom, a Classic Blue upholstered headboard is the stuff dreams are made of. Did I just write that? But you know what I mean.

Don't you love Thibaut's South Sea Wallpaper in Navy? Nothing like using a powder room for a splash of fun. While these rooms show Classic Blue paired with a fresh white, consider Classic Blue with red, yellow, coral, spring green, gray or chocolate.

And what is a "color of the year?" Pantone has been choosing an annual color for twenty years. As Pantone describes their annual choices as "color snapshots of what we see taking place in our global culture that serves as an expression of a mood and an attitude.” Look for the Color of the Year to influence fashion and home decor.
