How to Use the Pantone Color of the Year

Blue features - the pantone color of the yearThe Pantone Color of the Year for 2020 is Classic Blue, which is a beautiful mid-tone that is suggestive of the sky at dusk. A calming hue, Classic Blue looks great in multiple applications in your home decor. Here are some great ideas of how to incorporate the Color of the Year into your home’s style.

Wall color

Paint your walls Classic Blue or use abstract wallpaper with hints of Classic Blue.

Blue upholstery/furniture

Classic Blue furniture looks at home in both traditional and modern settings. It adds a vibrant pop of color that mixes well with gold and white accents. Classic Blue is a great color to paint built-in bookshelves for a stylish den or office space.


Classic Blue is an easy accent color that pairs well with yellow, orange, pastel shades or simple white. Try using it in your pillows/throws, lamps, vases, KitchenAid Mixer, wall art, rugs, bedspread/comforter…the possibilities are endless!

Kitchen cabinets

If you really want to turn up the punch factor, try Classic Blue cabinets. This bold move will pay off in style points. We have new Aristokraft Admiral purestyle laminate cabinets that give you that classic, high-impact look at a great value. You can also try having a blue kitchen island or just use the blue cabinets on the lower, and use classic white on the uppers.
