Pantone’s colour of the year for 2020 is Classic Blue!


For over 20 years, Pantone’s Colour of the Year has influenced product development and purchasing decisions in multiple industries, including fashion; home furnishings; industrial design; as well as product packaging and graphic design.

To arrive at the selection each year, experts at the Pantone Colour Institute comb the world looking for new colour influences.

Sarah said: “Pantone’s colour for this year is a calming blue echoing the beautiful sky at dusk. This attractive shade can help encourage clear thought and concentration as well as projecting confidence and tranquillity.”

Introducing this Classic Blue can add a bold addition to a neutral room scheme, as a strong, eye-catching feature wall or simply a statement with some aesthetic ornaments.

“PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue is a solid and dependable blue hue we can always rely on,” said Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Colour Institute. “It encourages us to look beyond the obvious to expand our thinking; challenging us to think more deeply and to increase our perspective.”

At Sarah Yates Interiors we have an extensive range of fabrics featuring the Classic Blue shade, from Designers Guild to I-Liv, delicate feathers to bold paisley patterns.  

We can offer guidance and direction to help you achieve the look you want to enhance your home.
