For the first time in five years, it seems like we’re taking a break from fun and loud colors as Pantone Color Institute has officially chosen classic blue as the color of the year for 2020. As a new decade starts, the color company decided to bring back what’s familiar to everyonea color that is calm and reassuring. 

Blue has always been a color with a versatile palette. As much as it pairs well with neutrals, it also matches perfectly with bright colors. This is also good for your health as it lowers blood pressure and heart rate. It also balances melatonin levels, a hormone that controls your sleep-wake cycle.

It was also crowned the world’s favorite color in 2017.

All that being said, now’s the best time to incorporate this timeless color into your home without repainting your walls. 

Pay attention to details
