Casa Forma Welcomes You To The Ultimate Luxury Interior Design Blog
While many people are busy preparing for the holiday season and giving thought to their New Year’s resolutions, for those with a passion for interior design we are excited by the announcement of the new Pantone colour of the year. And it seems as though the Pantone 2020 colour is Classic Blue – or more specifically shade 19-4052. While this blue can be called a number of different things, one term that seems to be popular is "anti-anxiety blue". This particular classic shade of blue is known for having soothing effects, making it ideal for your home.
So, what are the ways you can incorporate the 2020 colour of the year in your home? Here are three ways to go about it:
1. Incorporate blue as a colour to a feature wall in a room
One of the most obvious and impactful ways to add the Pantone colour of the year to your home is with blue on a feature wall. If you have a room(s) in need of updating, this could be the ideal colour to go with. Of course, you still need to be mindful of the overall colour theme throughout your home, which is why it’s ideal to add blue to one wall - a feature wall- in the room, rather than paint all the walls blue.
2. Add a Pop of Colour Through Accessories
If you’re not keen on the idea of painting a whole wall in the Pantone colour of the year, you can use anti-anxiety blue as inspiration when shopping for accessories such as cushions, a throw, or vases. They will act as the perfect pop of colour in the room, and then you haven’t committed to something as long-lasting. With changing accessories, you have design versatility and can easily change the decor when it no longer matches your style or preferences.
As for what type of décor pieces to choose, things like throw pillows and blankets, area rugs, photo frames for a gallery wall effect, vases, decorative bowls, sculptures, and artwork are all great examples.
3. Bring in New Furniture
There’s also the option of purchasing new furniture for the home that features the Pantone colour of the year. It can act as a statement piece in the room and really bring life to the colour. Furniture can be moved around in a room, as well as from room to room, depending on the item you purchase, so it’s still semi-flexible.
Why Classic Blue as the 2020 Colour?
For those who are curious as to how this classic blue ended up being the 2020 Pantone colour of the year, there is actually a whole mix of criteria that the Pantone team looks at. This includes such things as lifestyle, fashion, trend forecasts, beauty, media, travel destinations, political views, street art, textures, and more. They take all of this information into account, narrow it down to one colour family, and go from there. Blue was chosen as a way to help promote connection, confidence, and calmness on a global scale. Something much needed in the current environment.
Bring a Little Blue into Your Home to make your home your sanctuary and increase a calm, soothing ambiance.
We hope each of these suggestions will help you to incorporate the 2020 Pantone colour of the year into your home with ease.
