2020 Welcomes the Blues

Inspiration :   15 - 01 - 20

Classic Blue has been named the colour of 2020 by Pantone, the American colour coding company. Its fantastic array of colour swatches is the reference point for stylists and interior designers across the globe.

Pantone says the shade “brings a sense of peace and tranquillity to the human spirit”, particularly as technological advancements gather pace. “It’s easy to understand why we gravitate to colours that offer the promise of protection.”

Instilling calm, confidence, and connection, this enduring blue hue highlights our desire for a dependable and stable foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era.

This rich shade has been used in homewares through history, from Ancient Egyptian glazes and Bronze Age glass to Tang and Ming dynasties Chinese pottery.

Classic Blue can make strong statement on its own, as a bold feature wall or as an accessory against a neutral backdrop.

Alternatively, you could layer it with other lighter shades of blue, such as denim or sky, for a tonal look.
