The Pantone Colour of the Year 2020 has been announced and this year it is all about Classic Blue!

PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue brings calm, confidence, and connection as we just crossed the threshold into a new era. This timeless and enduring blue hue is elegant in its simplicity and is already found in lots of Scandinavian design pieces. Imprinted in our mind as a restful colour, adding Classic Blue will help bring a sense of peace and tranquility to your home.

Every year since I started the blog I have been sharing my selection of Scandinavian design in the colour of the year. Here is a collection of items to inspire anyone wanting to add touches of Classic Blue to their home. What do you think? Will you be incorporating it into your interior or maybe you already have? I love this classic shade of blue and already have quite a few items dotted around my home.

“We are living in a time that requires trust and faith. It is this kind of constancy and confidence that is expressed by PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue, a solid and dependable blue hue we can always rely on. Imbued with deep resonance, Classic Blue provides an anchoring foundation. A boundless blue evocative of the vast and infinite evening sky, Classic Blue encourages us to look beyond the obvious to expand our thinking; challenging us to think more deeply, increase our perspective and open the flow of communication,” says Leatrice Eisman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute
