Every year, the Pantone Color Institute reveals a new Color of the Year which influences product development and purchasing decisions in industries like fashion, furnishing, and design. The color of the year for 2020 is PANTONE 19-4052, aka Classic Blue, a solid and dependable blue hue that provides an anchoring foundation for design of all types.
Classic Blue is timeless and enduring, simple yet on-trend. It is a thought-provoking hue that resonates with us all and can be incorporated into almost any design. Pantone suggests pairing it with soothing colors like peach quartz (PANTONE 13-1125) and cornhusk (PANTONE 12-0714) or bold and evocative colors like lime punch (PANTONE 13-0550) and coralessence (PANTONE 20-0056).
