Classic Blue: 6 interiors showcasing Pantone’s Colour of the Year

At the start of 2020, Pantone selected Classic Blue as their Colour of the Year. According to the company best known for its Pantone Matching System, it’s a timeless and durable shade that’s elegant in its simplicity. Classic Blue is perfect for those seeking reassurance, stability and connection. The colour is additionally reminiscent of our desire for strong foundations as we enter a new era. Every interior could do with a refresh from time to time. Adding colour and pattern quickly and effortlessly lends your room a new ambience. Classic Blue looks great during the winter months and can simultaneously conjure a breezy summer vibe. All in all, an extremely accessible colour that breathes new life into your interior. But what’s the best way of incorporating this must-have shade? We’ve listed our favourite Classic Blue wallpapers for you below:
