Styling Pantone Colour of the Year

Staying on top of trends can seem as though you’re on a never ending rollercoaster. One minute it’s all about neutrals and the next minute; maximalist prints and patterns are on trend. Rather than blindly following trends, it’s always best to decorate with colours that you admire. This is especially important when you choose a new colour palette as everyone’s interior style is so subjective.


Pantone have recently revealed the colour of the year, Classic Blue. Described as a timeless and enduring blue hue, this restful shade is bound to prevail in interior décor. From home accessories and soft furnishings to furniture, paints and flooring, there’s plenty of ways to incorporate this year’s most popular colour (as anticipated by experts). Read on to find out how to integrate this elegant shade into your interior.


Large, layered styling


If you’re making big home improvements or in the process of property developing, you may consider featuring the classic blue shade in the architectural build. Think walls, flooring installations and kitchen cabinetry. Whether it’s carpet or tile, there’s plenty of options out there to style rooms to generate a fashion-forward feel. Invite timeless charm into your home with plenty of layered textures in the classic blue hue.


Consider layering cool materials such as glass, ceramic, porcelain and mosaics with cosy, plush textiles. If a classic blue carpet isn’t so desirable, then stick to an earthy dominant colour palette and feature this majestic shade in a luxury velvet sofa. This pop of colour will make a striking addition to any contemporary living space.


Maintain a cohesive fit throughout your home with a patterned classic blue tile embossed in your bathroom feature wall and kitchen backsplash. Decorate kitchen cabinets in a block classic blue paint and embellish with luxury style cupboard handles or knobs. The knurled T bar cupboard handles and drawer knobs offer exceptional quality, durability and performance in an unrivalled range of finishes including satin nickel, satin brass, copper and matte black. Showcasing industrial qualities, the knurled textured cupboard handles and drawer knobs will instantly add value and appeal to your dark blue colour scheme. For a contrasting aesthetic, we suggest warming up your blue features with satin brass or copper finish metallics.


Small, simple styling


Featuring classic blue in smaller quantities is the perfect solution for those with smaller budgets and evolving tastes. Display the luxury shade throughout your decorative furnishings and home accessories. A colourful burst of classic blue will add contrast and texture to relaxed spaces. Think patterned cushion covers, bedside and living room rugs, sofa throws or bathroom matts and towels. A block of colour or small flecks of the elegant shade will add life and vitality to otherwise bland spaces.


Enhance the vibrancy of the classic blue shade by featuring a cohesive collection of door furniture within your home. Match your brass or copper door handles with copper door hinges, cupboard handles, knobs and bathroom accessories in the matching finish.
