The color of 2020? Pantone has chosen Classic Blue


Trust, serenity and calm. These feelings are expressed by Classic Blue, elected Color of the Year by Pantone Color Institute. Since we expect to see this color often in 2020, we thought this article might help you get to know it better. Our team of color experts has already formulated the Classic Blue nuance and has selected the best color combinations. Here you will find everything you need to know and see.

Classic Blue, like the sky and the sea
For over 20 years, experts from the Pantone Color Institute, Pantone's commercial division, have been choosing the color of the year, influencing the world of fashion, design, furniture and graphics. The color is chosen by paying attention to emerging trends in society. This year there was a strong and clear need for a color that would convey a sense of confidence, calm and serenity, which would stimulate rational thinking, concentration and clarity. Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, confirms this.

We are living in a time that requires trust and faith. It is this kind of constancy and confidence that is expressed by Pantone 19-4052 Classic Blue, a solid and dependable blue hue we can always rely on.

Classic Blue, the most beautiful color combinations
As always, we didn't wast any time: our team created a range of coatings in the Classic Blue shade (P52020) available in different types of finishes, from ultra-high performance matt to glossy. Which color combinations? Here are the different solutions found by our color specialists.

In interior decorating it is possible to use the same base color combining more or less intense shades of blue/light blue, or opt for the classic pairing with gray, beige or the romantic salmon color. We also love to match Classic Blue with light or blue painted woods, in which the natural veins of the material are clearly visible.
