Classic Blue

The colour experts of Pantone have declared it’s Colour of the Year for 2020 is Classic Blue, and we’re feeling it!

Draws to nature

It reminds me of a dusky sky on a warm sunny day near the sea. It’s reassuring, but thought-provoking and makes you wonder what’s ahead of you.

Blue is bold

A timeless and enduring blue hue is elegant in its simplicity. This specific shade, Classic Blue, is regal, solid and vibrant…and strangely relatable in so many ways.

Blue re-centers our thoughts

It’s been said that blue increases concentration. Imprinted in our psyches as a restful colour, it brings a sense of peace and tranquility to the human spirit, offering refuge. Aiding concentration and bringing laser like clarity.

…a calming hue

This year is going to be a big year. It’s a good job Classic Blue represents dependability, trustworthiness, credibility, and constancy; all traits that are valued in the fast-paced, high-stress situations of the current world. Add a splash in your home or wardrobe and you’ll feel at ease.
