With the arrival of the new year, the “Color of the Year” is announced by Pantone. This color will be a trend in the coming months in interior design and other design disciplines. Pantone® Inc. is a long-standing company founded in 1962 that this year celebrates the 20th anniversary of its “Color of the Year” initiative with a proposal that invites calm in troubled times.
Classic Blue is a color that radiates serenity; It can even be defined as a commitment to sobriety. This tone is not intended to be novel, but rather seeks timelessness. Currently we are immersed in a society where values such as productivity, consumption and even the overstimulation of the senses prevail. These characteristics have led to pathologies such as stress and anxiety becoming common in a significant part of the population. Faced with this situation, Classic Blue brings strength to the turn of the decade and launches a call for calm and confidence.
This color has come to inspire trends in home, fashion and even travel. Its serious tone reminds us of the depth of the sea, it cannot be more Mediterranean! Here are some tips to incorporate it at home:
Classic Blue is a low risk color and therefore very elegant. It can be applied on large surfaces as it will not go out of style with the following season and its benefits will be more evident -a feeling of quiet in the most important space, our home-. To paint walls, we will take into account the dimensions of the room; otherwise, a dark color will reduce the visual sensation of spaciousness. It is also interesting to see what kind of light we have on the wall in question to imagine how the color will look throughout the day. We always recommend natural light when working with dark colors.
If you do not want to make big changes at home by painting the walls or changing the kitchen furniture, there are other options that will allow you to incorporate the color of the year into your home without investing too much. For the small details, our favorite items are textiles: a carpet, some cushion covers, and even new curtains will give your home a new look with all the solemnity that Classic Blue promises.
