Each year, Pantone announce their colour of the year – a shade they think is representative of the year to come. For 2020, they chose Classic Blue.
When the Pantone Color Institute released the Colour of the Year back in late 2019, they identified Classic Blue as a shade to offer reassurance and confidence to the world, due to the feelings of instability felt globally.
To celebrate the announcement of the Colour of the Year, Pantone created a multi-sensory experience featuring Classic Blue-coloured drinks, Classic Blue- textured décor and their official Classic Blue fragrance – a scent described as "a contemplation of where sky and sea meet"!
In interior design terms, the colour blue has been described as the ‘new neutral’ and is being used widely in home décor choices this year.
