Seeing blue? It’s not your imagination. This year, Pantone announced Classic Blue (also known as PANTONE 19-4052) as the Color of the Year. Every year, Pantone, the leader in color matching, releases their prediction for what the trendiest color of the year will be. While 2020’s top new color was announced as Classic Blue, the previous two years have seen Living Coral and Ultra Violet as the go-to hues of fashion, interiors, and graphic design innovators.
Pantone explains that as a timeless and enduring tone, Classic Blue is elegant in its simplicity. It highlights the desire for a dependable and stable foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold into a new decade.
While Classic Blue may be Pantone’s color of the year, other leaders in color report Mellow Yellow, Cantaloupe, Purist Blue, and Neo-Mint are 2020’s top new colors to watch this year. Benjamin Moore, the leader of quality paint, opts for “First Light” a warm but faint pink hue as its 2020 color of the year.
We always love a good interior design trend (it’s what makes fixing up your home so fun!), but we also know that classic choices — ones that will stand the test of time — offer the most bang for your buck year after year.
So if your 2020 resolution list included finally painting your laundry room, bedroom, kitchen or living room, making a plan for your home remodel, or revamping your family room, we’ve picked some color inspiration for you! These colors offer a little trendy excitement while staying grounded enough for you to love them next year (and the next year, and the next year…).
First on our list, a warm adobe color is beige done right. Choosing yellow or pink undertones, rather than blue or gray undertones, makes it easy to bring in leather and earth-toned accents to round out a space. This putty-like color makes us think of the New Mexico landscape and is a neutral that feels anything but boring. It easily stands on its own or pairs with other complementary colors. See an example of this adobe beige on our Lindsay Swivel Chair.
Deep midnight blue offers drama and contrast to any space. The eye is naturally drawn to dark colors, so mixing darker hues into your interior design provides little moments for your eyes to rest. We like the livelier feeling of dark blue as opposed to black; it’s a more approachable, comfortable alternative. The Blue Ivory Rug, from the Anastasia collection, is a perfect example of how deep blue can give depth to any palette.
Jump all in with a jewel tones, like this muted, deep turquoise-green. Opting for a saturated color feels a little more daring — and at the same time fresher than a paler alternative. When used in the right space, this turquoise green can be the real showstopper or simply the backdrop for a room that embraces all things color. The Mojito Occasional Chair shows how jewel tones can fit seamlessly into any Western design.
A nod to “Classic Blue”, this dusty blue makes us think of cold winter skies and feels like exactly the kind of calming hue we’d love to wake up to every morning. Perfect for a bedroom, this blue is a safe way to dip your toes into the color trends this year.
A dusty, sun-bleached gray feels a bit unexpected but could offer the quiet calm your space needs. Paired with rich leathers and cool-toned accents, this silvery neutral feels like an upgrade from a traditional gray or beige.
