How to incorporate Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2020 into your home

Each year, color company Pantone selects a Color of the Year inspired by trends in society, culture, travel, and more.

On Wednesday, Pantone announced its Color of the Year for 2020, which is Classic Blue, “a timeless and enduring blue” that’s “suggestive of the sky at dusk,” according to the Pantone website. Turns out, the simple color – a rich, dark blue – is a favorite of many interior designers for its versatility.

Adding Classic Blue to a room in the form of a large piece of furniture, such as a statement-making couch.

Classic Blue can also make for an eye-catching accent wall.

A Classic Blue-painted vanity can add interest to an otherwise neutral bathroom.

A fresh coat of paint in the dark-blue hue can also spice up kitchen cabinets and built-in storage.
