The Pantone Colour Institute has crowned Classic Blue as the colour of the year for 2020 – a blue hue perfect for timeless and harmonious interior design colour schemes. Classic Blue is elegant in its simplicity, yet also comforting. A connection to nature, such as a tranquil and cloudless night sky or a seemingly endless ocean, evokes familiari-ty.
This soft and unobtrusive blue creates a calming atmosphere in bedrooms and adds a colourful feature to furniture fronts and accessories. However, the same shade has a refreshing and comforting effect in the bathroom. This intense, rich colour also repre-sents joie de vivre and creativity, making it suitable for living areas, kitchens and table settings.
Nevertheless, good design concepts rely on contrasts. A room dominated by a dark col-our can quickly look overloaded or boring. Light shades of grey or a bright white used as a contrasting colour underline the positive and inspiring effect of Classic Blue.
