When you think of relaxation and calmness, what color do you think of? Most of us will say, “blue”! Pantone’s 2020 Color of the Year is Pantone 19-4052 Classic Blue, a shade reminiscent of the sky at dusk.
“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.”
This calming, soothing, relaxing blue is a color that reminds us of life – water, earth and sky. It encourages us to find tranquility in simple things. When the Pantone Color of the Year was announced earlier this year, we had no idea just how much peace and tranquility we would need in this world that is changing day to day due to the coronavirus.
Classic Blue is also a color that is very popular in corporate logos since it evokes dependability, trustworthiness, steadiness and calmness. It is a universal favorite color because it is so comfortable and familiar.
What are some of your favorite ways to incorporate Classic Blue into your life and home? It would work well as an accent wall paint color, incorporated into your kitchen décor in kitchen towels, placemats, napkins or tablecloths, or even in clothing as it is a universally flattering shade of blue.
