Are you feeling blue? No, not sad, blue! *Classic* Blue, actually. Well you should! Classic Blue is Pantone's choice for Interior Color of the Year for 2020.
Why is this great news?
Blue is a familiar color that reminds us of amazing natural features like a clear blue sky or the deep blue sea. Thus, to the human brain, blue signals stability which conjures up feelings of security, loyalty, and honesty. Having these ideas at the forefront of your mind calms your psyche and in turn soothes your nerves which improves your physical health as well. What's not to love?
How to incorporate Classic Blue in your home?
If you're feeling brave and looking to significantly change up your living space, then grab a roller and get painting. Classic Blue will no doubt transform your old room into a sophisticated and trendy masterpiece that will make everyone jealous of your confidence.
If you'd rather just dip your toe, then pick up a few throw cushions with fun textures to add pops of blue in with your current decor. Or, alternatively, just choose one standout piece that can hold the focus all on its own, like a large abstract painting.
