How to incorporate the Classic Blue trend within your interior

Blue is the new black.

At the end of last year Pantone announced their eagerly anticipated colour of 2020, this year is all about Classic Blue. Described as “a timeless and enduring hue, suggestive of the night sky at dusk”, Classic Blue has been selected as the colour to kick start a new decade. It is the perfect colour to transform your décor and your mood.

PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue
‘Instilling calm, confidence, and connection, this enduring blue hue highlights our desire for a dependable and stable foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era.’

Incorporating Classic Blue within your interior styling.

When Pantone choose their colour of the year they make the selection drawing inspiration from fashion, interiors, travel and culture. Classic Blue is a calming colour and when incorporated within the home will help with connectivity to your surroundings. It can also be used to introduce a vibrant flash of colour within your home or office when paired with other more muted shades.

So if you’re looking to make a dramatic statement with your interior styling or want to keep more of an understated look by just incorporating classic blue within the detailing of your space, this colour is sure to become a shade that will stand the test of time.

A kitchen often acts as the heart of the home so what better place to incorporate this future classic shade. Just the colour to add a brightness and make a bold statement by combining with sleek, modern blacks and greys. Classic blue is “elegant in its simplicity” and will make your kitchen walls a focal point of your interior style.

Statement furniture pieces

Another elegant way of introducing the colour of the year within your home is with the addition of statement pieces. Think of rich velvet sofas and armchairs or big furniture pieces such as wardrobes or shelving. This look can perfectly offset the whole look and feel of the space. Another wonderful way to incorporate classic blue into your interior styling is by embracing unique pieces like this beautiful bathroom.

Accessorising with accents and detailing

If you’re looking to achieve a more subtle nod to classic blue and want to find a way to interweave the trend into your existing décor you can look to detailing and adding accessories with beautiful classic blue accents. Look to blinds, cushions, light fittings, or other decorative pieces to introduce the colour to your existing scheme. Styling in this way can be used to add a flash of colour to cool grey modern interiors. Why not pair with several shades of blue to create a striking and complimentary look. Classic blue adds a touch of regal elegance when paired with copper and gold touches.

Shades that work well with Classic Blue.

We have found so many stunning examples that provide inspiration of how to achieve perfect harmony using classic blue shades in the home. You just need to decide if you want to use a traditional colour wheel to select complementary colours like yellows and oranges or you want to break away and put your own unique stamp with contrasting colours.

  • We love the luxurious pairing of rich blues and stylish mustard shades, it provides a wonderful finish within the home and is interior décor that will stand the test of time. Add fresh green plants to add another dimension to the styling.
  • Different blue shades paired with soft whites and pale greys is a stylish and beautiful way to showcase blues within the home. It gives a clean fresh look and will instil calm into space.

  • Perhaps you would like to use classic blue to inject vibrant clashing colours within the home, not for the faint of heart but a fantastic way to include patterns and prints of contrasting colours.
