Those of you who always keep an eye on design trends will know that Pantone colour of the year has a significant impact on fashion, style and design. The colour of the year 2020 “Classic Blue” was announced on Wednesday 5 December.

Whether you are a wedding planner, a headdress designer or a colour stylist, be prepared to see lovely blue bridesmaids’ gowns, blue grooms’ suits and headdresses with blue beads all the way through the next year. “Classic blue” is a very beautiful colour shade, somewhere in between royal blue and navy blue on the blue spectrum scale.

“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.”

“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,” said Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute. “Imbued with a deep resonance, PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue provides an anchoring foundation. A boundless blue evocative of the vast and infinite evening sky, PANTONE 19-4052 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.”

  1. I don’t always agree with the folks at Pantone, but this year I actually onboard! I love blues, although no a particular favourite fan of the baby — it’s a bit boring in my opinion — but this! This colour is fabulous. I need an accent wall in this colour.

      I love Pantone but yes, sometimes their choice of colour of the year can give us a bit of headache. I do like a bit of challenge though, you can always surprise yourself trying to use a particular colour scheme.

  2. Blue is such a calming and relaxing colour, I’m not at all surprised to see that it has made a comeback once again! While I don’t generally use blue in my own home decorating, I have seen some examples of it expertly done at the houses of friends and family – it’s a great accent colour if you lean more towards a simplistic and neutral colour palette.
