Pantone have been influencing architects, interior designers and product designers for over 20 years with their official colour of the year. In 2019, the award winning colour was Living Coral but marking the new decade, the 2020 official colour of the year 2020, is, Classic Blue.

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.


Our advice: Used in small touches, this bold and deep Classic Blue will add an element of richness and sophistication to a space. For Instance, go for the intense Schotch Blue by F&B from their new “Colour by Nature” palette, and apply it on a feature wall or in an alcove. Alternatively, you could also introduce it through fabrics as well as decorative objects to add accent to a space. “
