Taking Cues from a Classic Hue

Classic Blue

The Pantone Color Institute has announced its 2020 Color of the Year – Classic Blue, which is described by Pantone as “a timeless and enduring hue elegant in its simplicity. Suggestive of the sky at dusk, the reassuring qualities of Classic Blue highlight our desire for a dependable and stable foundation from which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era.”

A Solid Foundation

In contrast to Living Coral, the 2019 Color of the Year, Classic Blue is at once calming and understated, inviting deeper reflection and opening up to new possibilities. This elegant hue can be incorporated in the home in a number of ways – from subtle accents such as pillows, throws and wall art to more adventurous expressions such as furniture and statement walls.

Cooking up Style

The trend of using color in kitchen design will continue into 2020 and beyond. And, what better way to inject a pop of color into a kitchen space than with a splash of Classic Blue? This evocative shade of blue can be paired with a spectrum of warm and cool hues to create unique color combinations and tonal statements that catch the eye without being too bold.

Adding a range or fridge – or entire suite of appliances – in Classic Blue can transform an ordinary kitchen into a space with take-notice style. Elmira’s retro-inspired Northstar and Antique lines are both available in Classic Blue as a custom color.
