Colour authority Pantone has chosen classic blue as the colour of 2020. Selected for its soothing qualities, the hue evokes images of dusk skies and deep oceans. Suggestive of peace and tranquility, blue is said to help aid clarity of the mind. Pantone labelled the shade as “timeless” in an era of lightning-fast changes and internet communications.
If you’re planning on refreshing your interiors this year, there are plenty of ways to incorporate classic blue into your home. For a bolder approach, you can also create a blue accent wall – just make sure you balance it with neutral coloured adjacent walls. Use plain walls without windows and doors for maximum effect.
Even if you don’t want to make major changes, you can still inject blue into your living room, bedroom or kitchen. Textiles like curtains, rugs and throws instantly refresh your space when dome in the right combination. Statement pieces of furniture can also add character and work as a centrepoint or talking piece. The same goes for wall art. Ready to tackle the blues?
