If you’re in a bind trying to figure out what colors might be good in your home, maybe this year’s color will tip the scales for you. Read on to learn more!

Classic Blue Is the Pantone 2020 Color of the Year

Classic Blue brings us full circle to the first Color of the Year, Cerulean, another blue hue, which was chosen in 1999. Just as it was right before Y2K, blue seems to be a fitting color when the instability is gripping the world today. The color offers the confidence, reassurance, and connection that people are searching for.

About Classic Blue

Classic Blue is reminiscent of the sky at dusk. “It’s a color that anticipates what’s going to happen next,” said Laurie Pressman, the vice president of the Pantone Color Institute, which selects the Color of the Year. “What’s the future going to bring as we move into the evening hours?”

Using Classic Blue in the Home

Incorporating Classic Blue can transform your home in a regal and boundless way by using a variety of materials and prints. Add a lot of color for a dramatic look or a little color to simply brighten up your room. For example:

  • Go Bold with wallpaper or paint on the walls and ceilings
  • Add Dimension with window treatments, furniture, bedding, and flooring
  • Add Accent Color with throw pillows, area rugs, lamps, artwork, and vases

History of the Color of the Year
