Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2020 is very fitting this time around. It’s Classic Blue, a beautiful deep color reminiscent of the endless oceans and night sky. Did you know that blue is the most popular color in the world? It’s the last color in the spectrum of light.

Its relaxing attributes make it feel like you’re hanging out with your best friend. If you’re curious about freshening things up with this color, here are some interesting ideas for decorating your interior spaces with Classic Blue. 

Ideas for Classic Blue in Your Home

Transform your bedroom into the ultimate stress busting zone with Classic Blue accents. The deep tone is ideal for an accent wall. If your walls are light, you can decorate one side of the wall with artwork that features the blue color. Blue and white are gorgeous together, like fluffy clouds in the sky!

Classic Blue is also a great color for gathering spaces like living areas and waiting rooms. Blue is related to trust in color psychology and is grounding. Orange is a wonderful compliment to blue because it’s opposite in the color spectrum. The bright happy vibe from orange is an excellent balance for blue and a good setting for a conversation.

You can also combine it with green accents to further enhance its relaxing effects. Both of these color types are very popular in local Outer Banks home fashion.
