After Pantone unveiled Class Blue as the 2020 Color of the Year, blue has been a hot topic with design. I love a classic neutral color palette, but am not afraid to design with bold pops of color when appropriate.
In honor of the new color of the year, I’ll be sharing daring moments I’ve incorporated blue into past designs as well as sharing how I plan to use blue hues in upcoming projects. From small updates to creating a wow-factor, here’s how to bring Classic Blue into your home.
Paint The Walls – Go big or go home…and there’s no better way to do so than by grabbing a can of paint and getting to work. This is a simple DIY that is cost-efficient and will make a bold and lasting statement, since blue is consistently a popular color in design and will never go out of style.
Add Color to Kitchen Cabinets – If you don’t want to commit to painting an entire room/all of the cabinetry blue, start by painting a kitchen island or select cabinets. This will create a stunning contrast next to white or neutral cabinets.
Bedding – Known for its calming tendencies, dark blue is the ideal color to add to the bedroom. Start by selecting a dark blue comforter, accent pillows and decorative accessories mixed with other calming and neutral hues. The rich color is known to increase coziness and help create a soothing environment.
Tile It – If you’re ready to go all-in, give your bathroom an update by selecting new tile. Play with different colors and patterns to make a bold statement in the shower or on the bathroom floor.
Layer in Different Shades of Blue – Experiment with different hues in the color family for a more soothing, subtle look. From artwork to lighting and decorative accessories, bring the Color of The Year into your home by selecting pieces in shades ranging from light blue to dark navy
