Pantone Colour of the Year 2020 – Classic Blue
Pantone have announced their new colour of the year for 2020, a timeless and enduring blue hue, Classic Blue.
We are delighted to see this lovely blue feature as the colour of the year as we have seen many customers choose blue kitchens and bathrooms recently.
There are so many shades of blue to choose from, many of them are relaxing colours that work really well in kitchens and bathrooms. From soft pastels to bold dark blues, there is a wide spectrum to choose from.
The classic blue chosen by Pantone is recognisable as cobalt or royal blue. Pantone says that the colour choice highlights our desire for a dependable and stable foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era.
Described as being suggestive of the sky at dusk, Pantone claims that the colour brings a sense of peace and tranquillity to the human spirit, offering refuge, aiding concentration and bringing laser like clarity.
Whilst these may seem like ambitious aspirations, there is no doubt that this is going to be a popular colour in 2020.
Five colour palettes, matching other shades with Classic Blue have also been launched, providing inspiration for those that want to make safe choices with soothing colour harmonies and those that wish to be bold by adopting a palette of adventurous and exotic colours.
We are looking forward to using these palettes to influence the colour combinations in our kitchens and bathrooms next year.
