Pantone Color Institute has announced that its 2020 Colour of the Year is PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue. A deep blue shade that’s at once sophisticated and comforting, bound to set a new interiors trend.
It’s time to say goodbye to the Pantone Colour of the Year 2019.
But, what’s the history of this new interior trend?
History of the blue colour has always had its ups and downs.
The ancient Egyptians were evidently very fond of it, whereas in Rome wearing blue was associated with mourning and misfortune. And now, following the Egyptians steps, it’s back in vogue again.
As usual, the Pantone colour doesn’t influence only the interior design industry, but also other creative arts such as architecture, fashion, product design…and many others.

Blue, the colour of trust.
We have always been very fond of Blue, in fact we have chosen it as colour of our brand, since we believe it transmit a sense of trustworthy and refinement.
Blue is also an historical key colour for any architect, interior architect and interior designer.
This is because it was the colour that has allowed the production of the blueprints, a word that has come to denote any technical drawings.

Is this recalling the colour of the Millenium?
The official color of the millennium is Cerulean Blue PANTONE 15-4020 TC, the color of the sky on a serene, crystal clear day, says Pantone.
This colour juxtapose itself to the religions, like Christianity or Scientology. In fact the first one often uses it to depict Angels or similar figures, while the latter’s founder said ‘Let’s sell these people a piece of sky blue’.
