Earlier this month Pantone announced that their Colour of the Year for 2020 is ‘Classic Blue’, and here at Home Club ME, we couldn’t wait to explore how this bold shade could be incorporated into our homes.
Instilling calm, confidence, and connection, Pantone says 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.
For over 20 years, Pantone’s Color of the Year has influenced product development and purchasing decisions in multiple industries, having a particular impact on home furnishings and interior design.
The Pantone Color of the Year selection process requires thoughtful consideration and trend analysis. To arrive at the selection each year, Pantone’s color experts at the Pantone Color Institute comb the world looking for new color influences. This can include the entertainment industry and films in production, traveling art collections and new artists, fashion, all areas of design, popular travel destinations, as well as new lifestyles, playstyles, and socio-economic conditions. Influences may also stem from new technologies, materials, textures, and effects that impact color, relevant social media platforms and even upcoming sporting events that capture worldwide attention.
“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 a 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.” – Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Colour Institute.
So, if you’re about to give your home a face-lift, or perhaps you’ve just moved into a new home and you’re looking to decorate, we hope this round up of ‘Classic Blue’ home interiors inspires you!
