How To Style Pantone’s 2020 Colour Of The Year – Classic Blue
Pantone‘s colour of the year “classic blue”, or Pantone 19-4052, is known to be the most universally liked colour in the world. This colour is described by Pantone as “a reassuring presence instilling calm, confidence and connection.” A hue associated with communication, introspection and clarity its selection encourages us to recenter our thoughts, challenging us to think more deeply and be more open.
According to the company classic blue has been chosen to bring a sense of peace, tranquillity and refuge to 2020. The perfect way to highlight our desire for a sense of stability as we enter a new decade, and with it a new era. We know some say it’s a tad ‘safe’, but we think it’s all about the way you use it! We’ve got some tricks up our sleeve to show you how you can style classic blue to stand out!
A Bold Blue Feature Wall
Why not be brave this year and make a bold statement! Embrace the colour of the year with vigour by making it the central focal point of your home with a feature wall. This styling option works well with classic blue as the hue is a relatively understated colour. It also instantly creates depth for smaller spaces. Make the most of this deep blue by pairing it with pale wood, metallic chairs and pops of jade green, or lemon accessories. But be sure to not over style the space, as minimal accessories work best with this dramatic styling choice.
Picture Perfect Rooms
If you’ve decided to take a more subtle approach when it comes to incorporating the year’s colour, try adding small touches through carefully curated accessories. For the living room our mind jumps to a geometric patterned blue rug, accompanied with deep blue lamp shades and vases. A blue velvet armchair or couch is another great way to bring some additional elegance to your space. Meanwhile in the kitchen and dining spaces you can’t go past a beautiful table runner, placemats and crockery. Replace your fruit baskets with delicate blue glass bowls, and if you’re lucky enough to have a light filled kitchen why not add some white and blue patterned curtains. As for the bedroom your options are endless. It goes without saying cushions, pillows and throws are a no fuss way to inject some blue into the space. But don’t neglect the opportunity to replace your curtains, lamps, rugs or even bedframe if you’re feeling particularly adventurous.
Unique Accent Pieces
The best part about styling classic blue is the effortless way it can stand out in a room without having to be overbearing. A key tray or mirror in your opening foyer is an exciting way to jazz up your entrance. Take a more abstract approach by including artwork or photography with an ocean or seaside theme to evoke the same peaceful aesthetic. Finally, we saved the best to last! Why not buy some blue crystals? We recommend sapphire or zircon! Place them on your coffee table, bookcase or anywhere they can catch the light.
