Decorating with Classic Blue

January 15, 2020
Beckett Kitchen Pathways in Caledon East Ontario Brookfield Residential

Welcome to 2020, where the decade is fresh, and the Pantone color of the year is a classic shade of blue. Said to instill “calm, confidence and connection,” Pantone’s Classic Blue can easily be incorporated into any room of your home. It pairs excellently with crisp whites, pops of bright color, soft pastels and more. It’s also a hue that is unlikely to ever go out of style, so you can be confident your decorating choices will continue to look great for a long time to come.

Classic Blue offers versatility and emanates power that looks great big and bold or in smaller accents. Try adding some pillows or a throw blanket, or find some Classic Blue candle holders to add a pretty blue glimmer to your tabletop. The blue patterned bar stools and painted kitchen island cabinets at Pathways at Caledon East add undeniable style to a sleek white kitchen. A classic blue rug like the one featured in the above Savannah bedroom will change the vibe of an entire room, and a gorgeous classic blue velvet couch like the one seen above at Travilah Station makes an on-trend statement without being overbearing. From the bedroom to the kitchen and every room in between, Classic Blue is neutral enough to fit anywhere.

Get creative by showcasing large framed pattern art to set the mood like in this beautiful Robson dining room at The Orchards. Or go all out and paint a whole accent wall to create the ultimate chill hangout spot like the above Carlisle 2 home at Chinook Gate.

The Pantone Color of the Year, Classic Blue, is going to be everywhere this year, which makes it easy to find fresh new pieces of art, furniture and more that you can add to your home. And with Classic Blue, it’s hard to go wrong, so have fun experimenting.
