The Pantone Color Institute has dubbed 2020 as the year of: Classic Blue.
This decision was hardly made overnight, though. Throughout the year the institute discusses colors that could possibly define the forthcoming year.

With 2020 coming full throttle and election season looming ahead, this calming azure shade asserts itself confidently because of its stable and elegant simplicity, which is something we all need with the uncertainty of the future materializing before us.
Classic Blue has ubiquitous interpretations that evoke thought-provocation, peace, clarity, and concentration. Accompanying its symbolization, you can find this shade at dusk when you are looking forward to the new day, in a ripe handful of rotund blueberries, or even in the dye of your favorite blue-jean jacket furthering the driving force behind the decision to choose this color: to summon intimate feelings of dependability and unity.
Along with its classic aura, décor and architectural trends are also looking back to more timeless and traditional compositions. Not to necessarily revert back to what once was, but to reinterpret the past into contemporary ideologies. So, expect to see this tranquil shade throughout living spaces both nationally and internationally.
This omnipresent shade can also be found naturally from plants. With having to consider the topic of sustainability in our everyday lives now, Classic Blue is the perfect color to invoke thought on the future of our planet and what we can do improve its and our health.
