Pantone has just announced its Colour of the Year for 2020 as Classic Blue. Here's how you can bring into your home in the next year. 

Dunelm Dining  Pantone Colour Of The Year

The colour forecasting experts at Pantone have made their prediction for the colour that will define 2020 - looks like next year is set to be the year of Classic Blue

In recent years, blue has become more of an interior-friendy colour than ever, with homeowners even opting for blue kitchen cabinetry without a second thought. Classic Blue is more saturated and energetic than a near-neutral midnight blue, which definitely means it pops more as a shade but still offers something easy to palate in terms of itnroducing colour. 

For a Pantone Colour of the Year, Classic Blue feels like something that we can really adopt into our interiors (especially if you consider Colour of the Year Ultra Violet from recent years) and the colour experts describe it as "[a] dependable and stable foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era."

It may still be 2019, but get ahead of the trend with these brilliant buys to add to your home and embrace the brand new Colour of the Year.
