Celebrate the Colour of the Year 2020 with Pantone

Every year the American colour company Pantone selects a colour tone as its annual colour. This year the choice is Classic Blue. Described by the colour institute as timeless and elegant, the shade of blue has been decided upon via various influences including all areas of design, entertainment media and home-ware production. Dedicated to instilling calm and tranquility to the spirit, the selection is a colour that bestows calm and confidence.

Capable of influencing the trends of interior design for the rest of the year, the announcement is always an interesting one to take note of for anyone wanting to keep up with the latest looks.


Here at Homecolours we're naturally intrigued by all colour trends and workings within the rainbow of shades and tones. The latest Pantone Mug, Classic Blue Colour of the Year 2020 celebrates the company's choice in style, displaying the rich blue over the excellent quality fine china mug. Arriving with a matching gift box, the beautifully made mug offers a lovely start to the year.

Easy to look after and care for, the mg is both microwave and dishwasher safe. Ideal for tea and coffee breaks, the mug is a great showcase for anyone keeping up to date with the latest colour themes.

Variants of classic Blue as a colour tone  can also be found in close approximations. The calming textures of blues are lovely for a relaxing offering in the kitchen and living areas.

Take for example the Tide Azure Cushion above from Bluebellgray. This delightful imprint of blues rings to mind sea and sky, and looks great perched on sofa or chair. Beautifully made using a combination of viscose and linen, the luxurious inner is made of soft feather pad.

Another stunning cushion richly decorated with blue shades with the addition of a gorgeous illustration of animal life is the elegant Peacock Cushion, 30 x 60cm by Sophie Allport. Lovingly created, the luxuriously crafed blue velvet cushion provides a beautiful way to relax in the home.

Another calming use of the colour blue is provided by the Blue Skies Small Lampshade. Available in two sizes, the lampshade delivers a style statement for any room in the home. Making the most of contemplative tones of blue and white, the artistic patterns resemble the movement of clouds across the sky. Beautifully made using linen fabric, the lampshade is strong and durable. Easy to attach to a lamp, the shade provides another soothing use of the colour blue. Also available as a Blue Skies Cushion, the relaxing design brings the natural thoughtful tranquility of blue right into the home.
