In the spirit of the New Year, Pantone’s Color of the Year is an opportunity for all home designers, painters and decorators to embrace something new. This year, incorporating a restful and timeless deep blue into your home’s aesthetic is that opportunity.
“Instilling calm, confidence, and connection, this enduring blue hue highlights our desire for a dependable and stable foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era.” – Pantone.com
Citing its restful, reflective and peaceful effect on our psyche, Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, says, “We are living in a time that requires trust and faith. It is this kind of constancy and confidence that is expressed by PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue, a solid and dependable blue hue we can always rely on. Imbued with a deep resonance, Classic Blue provides an anchoring foundation. A boundless blue evocative of the vast and infinite evening sky, Classic Blue encourages us to look beyond the obvious to expand our thinking; challenging us to think more deeply, increase our perspective and open the flow of communication.”
However you choose to use Classic Blue, we hope it lends itself well to your home and to your life. For more interior design ideas, check out our post, “Interior Design Tips Inspired by Winter.”
