Design Trends & Ideas

In the busy, fast-paced environment of modern-day living Pantone wants to usher in the new decade with a feeling of refuge and resilience. If you read our previous blog on trending colors of the year for 2020, you’ll have noticed a trend in blues and greens from some of the most notable heads of the industry, and Pantone’s 2020 Color of the Year follows suit. What is it? Classic Blue.

The goal of this color is to embody stability, restfulness, peace and tranquility.
