The Pantone Color Institute recently announced that the Color of the Year for 2020 is Classic Blue. It resembles the sky at dusk and looks forward to the future, which is the hope for a lot of people in the new decade. It exhibits reassuring qualities of comfort that brings a much needed calm, a stark contrast to 2019’s Living Coral. Here are a few ways to incorporate Classic Blue into your home this year:
An accent wall in the living room or dining room is the perfect spot to try a shade of paint close to Classic Blue. Visit your local paint store to find the shade that works best for you and get started on a home refresh. Classic Blue would also be fun to experiment with on kitchen cabinets with fun metal hardware.
Consider an accent chair or table in Classic Blue. This will bring a relaxing feeling to the room and create a warm atmosphere for guests. Reupholstered dining room chairs paired with a dark wood table will add the perfect pop of color to an otherwise boring dining area.
A small way to introduce Classic Blue into your home decor is through centerpieces and other small items. Maybe a planter box for your flowers and herbs would be a good way to start, or storage baskets that sit next to the couch. Vases and candles in Classic Blue are also a simple way to bring out more of the color.
Imagine the relaxing environment in your room that will come from this calm shade of blue. Snag a new set of sheets to pair with a neutral comforter or duvet. Some throw pillows and blankets will do the trick as well.
Classic Blue is sure to be seen everywhere in 2020, so jump on the trend and enjoy the comforting atmosphere created in your home!
