Drum roll please – Pantone has chosen Classic Blue as their official color of the year! Over the past couple of years, bold colors on walls have become commonplace in designer magazines and new model homes. Bucking the old guidance of using bland, light hues to make rooms look larger, deep greens, rich reds and even soft blacks are used in even the smallest spaces. This year, Pantone has chosen a fresh Classic Blue to inspire homeowners and designers in 2020. Read on to get our tips for including classic blue in your Asheville home interior.
Classic Blue is just what it sounds like – a classic! Think of your favorite sneaker or school binder and you’ll be right on track. Described as a calming, familiar azure, Classic Blue is an uncomplicated, straightforward tone intended to provide a “neutral” backdrop for modern color palates and urban chic styling.
Modern interior design has been trending towards more unassuming color schemes for furniture, flooring and accents. Kitchens sport sleek white cabinets and subway tile counters and backsplashes. Tone on tone design with urban elements of steel and softwood tones lend themselves to this fresh blue hue. Pantone suggests that the simple color palette of blue and white is a comforting return to more traditional styling and expects that Classic Blue is the perfect wall color to compliment the Mid-Century and 60s décor that has emerged with a modern twist.
Here are a few ideas on how to incorporate Classic blue into the interior of your Asheville NC home this year:
- Statement furniture
- Accent walls
- Area rugs
- Pillows, vases and other accessories
A great weekend project for a room or rooms, Classic Blue would add a fresh look to any space. Get in touch with a local Asheville real estate agent today to begin your home buying journey!
