Interior Design – Pantone’s Colour of the Year 2020

The Pantone Institute has been delighting the world of design with its annual Colour of the Year since 2000. The colour influences everything from fashion and interiors to food and design. Past Colours of the Year have included Coral (2019) and Ultra Violet (2018).

The Pantone Colour Institute announced its colour of the year for 2020 in December. This year is all about Classic Blue. A timeless and enduring blue hue, Classic Blue is elegant and simple. Invoking the swathes of blue across the sky at dusk, this colour brings attention to our desire for a dependable and stable foundation as we cross the threshold into a new era.

Classic Blue is also known for its restful, relaxing qualities which bring a sense of peace and tranquillity to those it surrounds. As technology continues to develop, it is natural to gravitate towards colours that offer a sense of protection from the world around us. 

“We are living in a time that requires trust and faith,” says Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute. “It is this kind of constancy and confidence that is expressed by [Classic Blue], a solid and dependable hue that we can always rely on. Imbued with a deep resonance, Classic Blue provides an anchoring foundation.”

If you are looking for ways to incorporate this restful colour into your space, start by evaluating whether it would work on your walls. Blue paint and wallpaper provide the perfect calming backdrop to colourful furniture or a monochrome scheme. You could also use the blue on larger pieces of furniture, such as the sofa, to provide a solid foundation or the rest of the room and incorporate it into soft furnishings such as curtains and cushions.
