Classic Blue – Pantone Color of the Year

Sky, Water, Butterfly wings, Bird Plumage, and flowers…. What do these all have in common? They can be “Classic Blue”, the Pantone Color of the Year!

This color was chosen after lots of careful thought, study, and trend analysis, by Pantone color specialists because:

“A timeless and enduring blue hue, PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue is elegant in its simplicity. Suggestive of the sky at dusk, the reassuring qualities of the thought-provoking Classic Blue highlight our desire for a dependable and stable foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era.

Imprinted in our psyches as a restful color, [Classic Blue] brings a sense of peace and tranquility to the human spirit, offering refuge. Aiding concentration and bringing laser like clarity, [Classic Blue] re-centers our thoughts. A reflective blue tone, Pantone Classic Blue fosters resilience.”

What can be found in nature that embodies this color? In nature, we have a hard time finding anything blue, yet it can be done! (Click here to read more about why we see very little actual blue in nature). I went through my archives and selected my favorites, and will definitely be on the watch in 2020 for this calm, relaxing hue.
