Drum roll please – Pantone has chosen Classic Blue as their color of the year. Over the pastcouple of years, bold colors on walls have become commonplace in designer magazines and newmodel homes. Bucking the old guidance of using bland, light hues to make rooms look larger,deep greens, rich reds, and even soft blacks are used in even the smallest spaces. This year,Pantone has chosen a fresh Classic Blue to inspire homeowners and designers in 2020. 

Classic Blue is just what it sounds like – as a classic. Think of your favorite sneaker or schoolbinder and you’ll be right on track. Described as a calming, familiar azure, Classic Blue is anuncomplicated, straightforward tone intended to provide a “neutral” backdrop for moderncolor palates and urban chic styling. 

Modern interior design has been trending towards more unassuming color schemes forfurniture, flooring, and accents. Kitchens sport sleek white cabinets and subway tile countersand backsplashes. Tone on tone design with urban elements of steel and softwood tones lendthemselves to this fresh blue hue. Pantone suggests that the simple color palette of blue andwhite is a comforting return to more traditional styling and expects that Classic Blue is theperfect wall color to compliment the Mid-Century and 60s décor that has emerged with amodern twist.

A great weekend project for a room or rooms, Classic Blue would add a fresh look to anyspace.
