The results are here. Pantone has announced the 2020 Colour of the Year and this is what they have predicted. The colour that will be ruling the roost is Classic Blue…a familiar calming timeless shade.

Pantone’s new “Colour of the Year” inspires art and design in all of its forms for the upcoming year.20 years ago when they first started announcing the colour of the year they knew it was a risk as Pantone was hardly a household name then.  But design awareness and interest have come a long way since then and now everyone is plugged in and totally aware.

The Pantone colour forecasts are the authority for a lot of industries. The colour experts at Pantone make their pick based on what is needed in our world today. In 2019, Pantone chose the energizing and vibrant Living Coral to restore positivity. In an atmosphere of uncertainty and unrest, Classic Blue resembles an evening sky and the colour is intended to inspire a clear, peaceful mind which seems to be the need of the day.

Leatrice Eiseman the Executive Director of Pantone explains “Blue, from an emotional, psychological standpoint, has always represented a certain amount of calm and dependability. It’s a colour that you can rely on.”

The start of a new decade with this colour is all about open communication, bringing a sense of peace, tranquillity to the human spirit and dependability.

When we saw the announcement we knew we were on the right track. Blue was already a big part of our collection. The colour gurus have confirmed the same. Hurrah! For us.
