Adding Pantone's Classic Blue to the home

Pantone's 2020 Colour of the Year was revealed at the end of 2019 to be Classic Blue — a calm, confident and reassuring shade that brings a sense of peace and clarity.

There have been a lot of opinions floating around the web of Pantone's choice for this year, but I personally love it. It's a timeless colour that can work well in both traditional and modern interiors. It's called Classic Blue for a reason — it's a classic colour that will never get boring.

I thought I'd make this post to help those who want to work some Classic Blue into their home.

Round Ruched Velvet Cushion from Graham & Green, £45.00 — Cushions are an easy way of bringing pops of colour to a living room or bedroom. They can be mixed up and switched around the home freely.

Louise Roe Copenhagen Jewel Vase from Nordic Nest, £78.00 — If you want a more subtle pop of blue, opt for a simple vase. Glass will allow light to reflect beautiful blue tones into the room.

Sternzeit Design Retrostar Chair from Fy, £304.00 — If you have a minimalist space or a plainly decorated room that needs a little zhuzh, a burst of Classic Blue will add energy and warmth.

Ronda Wool Pile Rug from, £99.00 — Similarly to the chair, a rug will add warmth and dimension to a room. It's a rich colour that will help pale rooms feel more grounded.

Regina Touch Table Lamp with Navy Blue Shade from Iconic Lights, £35.00 — If you have any lamps in your home that could do with a makeover, swap out the lampshade. It's an easy and affordable way to completely change the look of a piece.

Blue Vase Wall Art from SwanboroughPrints, from £10.00 — Love this print with just a pinch of blue. In a gold frame it looks super expensive and would slot nicely into a traditional room.

Luna Brushed Navy Blackout Eyelet Curtains from Dunelm, from £25.00 — If you want to go hard with the blue, opt for some opulent curtains. Not as full on as painting a wall, but still packs a punch.
