Every year, Pantone selects a color that represents the New Year and sets trends. For 2020, Pantone selected Classic Blue as its color of the year. The vice president of the Pantone Color Institute said, “It’s a color that anticipates what’s going to happen next.” This calming blue tone brings out our desire for a dependable foundation for the future. Classic Blue is a timeless shade of blue that will bring a comforting atmosphere to any space in your home.

Kitchens
We have already seen a rising trend of blue cabinetry in kitchens. Classic Blue can be used for all cabinets to have a unified look or for the island alone to add a pop of color. This blue tone can also be used on backsplash tile to add depth. Classic Blue appliances are also an option to add a focal point your kitchen. Nontraditional colors are becoming a trend in kitchen appliances. Blue cookware is an easy option for those who want to add subtle hints of blue in the kitchen.

Bathrooms
This blue hue is perfect for bathroom spaces as it’s reminiscent of the ocean. Classic Blue can be used for a dynamic tile color. Similar to kitchens, it can also be used for cabinetry. Add a touch of greenery to create a contrast effect and bring in more color.

Accent Walls
Classic Blue may be a little too dark for an entire room, but an accent wall would make a smaller room feel larger. An accent wall is an easier way to add life to a space. Pair a Classic Blue accent wall with white, taupe, or light blue walls to add contrast.

Décor
Classic Blue furniture and décor are low-commitment ways to add this color to your home. You can add large pieces, such as a couch, or small touches, like throw pillows and art. Throw rugs are an easy option as they can make the space feel larger. Classic Blue works with jewel tones to create an elegant feel or with light, neutral shades for a peaceful atmosphere.

Exterior
Classic Blue works well outdoors as well. It works on any style home from traditional to contemporary. Next to lush, green landscaping, it adds visual interest as blue and green are complementary colors. Of course if you don’t want to commit to having a blue home, you can add subtle accents. For example, adding Classic Blue shutters or window accents can make your home look more exciting.

Classic Blue is also a great front door color for those that like dark, bolder colored doors. Using Classic Blue instead of black or navy can make your entryway feel more welcoming. Blue doors signify abundance and prosperity. They are also linked to a sense of safety and security.
