Instilling calm, confidence and connection – this blue hue could not come at a better time. This timeless tone highlights our world’s desire for a dependable and familiar foundation to head into 2020.

Expect to see classic blue appearing in interiors everywhere. From large form furniture or feature chairs to eye-catching accent walls, panelling and smaller pops of colour in cushions and throws – there are many ways to use this surprisingly diverse and adaptable hue. The announcement of Pantone Classic Blue couldn’t have come at a more perfect time for the New Year and indeed the new decade.
