PANTONE’s colour experts’ careful consideration and trend analyses have concluded that Classic Blue (PANTONE 19-4052) will be the colour that influences product development and purchase decisions throughout 2020. 

According to PANTONE, “suggestive of the sky at dusk, the reassuring qualities of the thought-provoking PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue highlight our desire for a dependable and stable foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era.” 

Integrating this timeless colour into your home’s interior design will encourage a calm, yet focused feeling for the new decade. Classic Blue fosters peace and tranquillity, and also symbolises connection – a perfect shade for your study or work area. 

If you’re looking for ways to incorporate this classic colour into your Arden home, we’ve got a few tips to help you out! 

  1. Be bold with a feature wall 

Make an impression by painting an entire wall with this soothing deep blue hue. Described as a colour that “aids concentration and brings laser like clarity”, Classic Blue is the perfect shade to feature in your study or home office. Or, dedicate a wall in your main living space to this colour to encourage a calm and thoughtful ambience. 

2. Get fancy with furniture 

Be bold and integrate blue furniture into your home for a stylish splash of colour.  Don’t be afraid to freshen up an old cabinet or side table with a coat of Classic Blue paint. Textured items such as a velvet ottoman or plush armchair also work well. For some inspiration, check out the luxurious deep blue couch featured in our Luxe Keysborough home, blue dining chairs in our Luxe Torquay home or slouchy blue couch in our Milan 29MK3 home at Lyndarum Estate. 

3. Dare to experiment with décor 

The best way to subtly integrate some colour into your home is with décor.  

A classic blue throw, cushions, picture frames or rug can liven up your space by capturing attention and contrasting neutral palettes. Accessorising with bold furniture is a great way to integrate colour without changing wall colours.  

4. Get creative with artwork 

Whether it’s a one-of-a-kind work of art or a creative DIY piece, artwork is such a fun way to integrate colour into your home. Suitable for all rooms in your home, welcome Classic Blue into your interior design by sourcing or creating art that makes it an attention-grabbing feature. Tip: blue is commonly associated with the bathroom, so incorporating an ocean blue art piece into this area can add another relaxing touch. 

Because every Arden homes features a neutral colour palette that complements all interior designs, tailoring your Arden Home to suit your colour preferences is easy!
