Color of the Year 2020
Recently, Pantone unveiled its Color of the Year 2020 https://www.pantone.com/color-intelligence/color-of-the-year/color-of-the-year-2020, Classic Blue. As the name suggests, it is a timeless shade of blue that feels tranquil and fresh. And as Leatrice Eiseman put it in her statement revealing the color, Classic Blue is “a solid and dependable blue hue we can always rely on.” Lighter and brighter than a traditional navy yet still a rich shade of blue, this dependable hue won’t let us down—especially when it comes to paint color.
In contrast to the Color of the Year 2019 https://www.realsimple.com/home-organizing/decorating/pantone-2019-color-of-the-year, vibrant Living Coral, which worked best as a bright pop of color in a room, Classic Blue is a timeless wall paint color. Plus, it works in every single room in the house. At Ashleigh Underwood Design we have used this versatile color adding elegance to* kitchen cabinets, dressing up a dining room,* or lending serenity to a bedroom. The visual proof: just check out all of the Classic Blue spaces, below. The best part? This may be the trendiest color of 2020, but you can rest assured it won’t go out of style for many years (if ever!)
