Step aside Living Coral, because Pantone has just announced Classic Blue as the 2020 Colour of the Year! Described as “a timeless and enduring blue hue”, this colour is set to give interiors a subtle, versatile pop this year.

Each year for the past 20, Colour company Pantone carefully announces a Colour of the Year based on different global influences such as travel and culture.

This long-awaited news is sure to impact millions of purchasing decisions this year as architects and interior decorators alike look to keep on trend.
