Classic Blue is the colour of the year; a soothing and velvety blue that transcends feelings of calm, confidence and connection. Which is exactly the reason why you should be adorning your home with the timeless colour this season.
Pantone’s Classic Blue colour represents the sky at dusk. The soft and reassuring tones of cool blue are something you can easily incorporate into your home.
This universal blue is timeless, exuding elegance everywhere you put it. It is a colour you can depend on for any occasion or setting.
“We are living in a time that requires trust and faith. It is this kind of constancy and confidence that is expressed by PANTONE Classic Blue, a solid and dependable blue hue we can always rely on. Imbued with a deep resonance, Classic Blue provides an anchoring foundation,” says Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Colour Institute.
“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,” she added.
The shade brings peace and tranquillity to the spirit and aids with concentration and clarity which is useful for an array of settings.
You can pop down the can of paint as you don’t have to go all out to reap the benefits of this soothing shade of blue. To incorporate this lustrous blue into your life this year, Laurie Pressman, vice president of Pantone suggests “Classic Blue accent pieces such as a scarf or watch strap or a vase or candle for your home or workplace”.
