Now that this turbulent 2019 is coming to an end, warm coral colours are slowly emerging from designer fashion and giving way to a deep shade of blue, known as 'Classic Blue'. At the end of each calendar year, the Pantone Institute of Colours (https://www.pantone.com/color-intelligence/color-of-the-year/color-of-the-year-2020) presents a colour that will mark the coming year, and 2020 is blue.
This shade will remind you of the sky after sunset, the depths of the seas and oceans, and with its timeless and lasting beauty that associates with freedom, will win your hearts. It will create the impression of spaciousness and openness in your home and will expand the boundaries.
Blue, and especially this shade, is known as a colour that gives a calming effect to our psyche because it brings an incredible sense of peace and relaxation and thus helps us to break away from the era of technology and indulge in daydreaming.
Also, we can see the symbolism: blue is chosen in the year in which we move into the new decade because it represents our desire for a stable and secure foundation on which to build the future (we will remind that Pantone chose Celuan blue two decades ago for the colour of the year because it represents excitement due to entering the new century).
Like every year, the colour chosen has a profound effect on culture and trends, from home decor to the fashion industry. If you decide to decorate your interior with this grateful colour, there are many ways to do it, and we suggest that you get a new (or upholstered) armchair or classic sofa, rug or curtain as the fastest way to do so. You can also choose little things like decorative pillows, tablecloths, vases, and lamps.
When it comes to tiling, you certainly won't go wrong if you turn one part of the wall into this colour, which looks great when combined with wood, white, orange, beige, brown and green. However, be careful because, in spite of all its qualities and advantages, too much blue in one room can cause a feeling of melancholy, closedness or sadness. Therefore, the key to good interior design in blue lies in the moderate use of this colour.
