How to Use the Pantone Colour of the Year in Your Home

2020 is the year of Classic Blue!

In December 2019, Pantone announced that Classic Blue is its Colour of the Year 2020, so expect to start seeing this ‘timeless and enduring blue hue’ everywhere soon. The American company said it chose this shade in order to “highlight our desire for a dependable and stable foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era”.

With a calming and peaceful effect, this shade of blue will work beautifully in nearly every room in the home. Don’t believe us? Take a look below at our Classic Blue picks for 2020.
