Pantone have announced ‘Classic Blue’ as the Colour of the Year for 2020 and we couldn’t be more excited about it here at Apollo Blinds.
Describing the colour as “a deep shade that’s at once comforting and relatable”, Pantone’s expert panel say “it instills calm, confidence, and connection, highlighting our desire for a dependable and stable foundation on which to build.”
Our experts have got heaps of window dressing ideas and top tips for using Classic Blue in every room – perfect for updating your home as we cross over in to a new decade.
Introduce ‘Classic Blue’ at windows with blinds and curtains
Mirroring the natural hues of dusk, Classic Blue is reminiscent of a dreamy evening sky, making it the ideal shade for window dressings. Extremely versatile – it can be applied as the key, block colour at a window – working equally well as a sheer Duette® blind…
…or as a Duette® blind with dim out qualities.
And if it’s pattern you’re after, mix shades of soft grey and off white with this elegant blue hue…
Choose furniture and accessories in Classic Blue
Classic Blue complements a whole host of colours- think greys, teals, subtle pinks and shades of white – making it the ideal colour to add an instant update to existing colour schemes.
As a top pick for living spaces, Classic Blue can make a loud statement whilst maintaining calmness. The colour lends itself perfectly to velvety textures, providing a luxurious sheen to soft furnishings. Introduce Classic Blue into your seating with a buttoned corner sofa from Arighi Bianchi or set of quilted dining chairs – perfect alongside rich mahogany furniture, with hints of gold and brass, or rich emerald green. Or, to add a splash of colour to your current decor introduce plump blue velvet cushions and a plush faux fur throw.
