Each year, Pantone is revealing the new colour of the year and 2020 is no different.
Pantone has chosen "universal favourite" Classic Blue, or Pantone 19-4052, as its colour of the year for 2020.
It's described as "a timeless and enduring blue hue" that's "suggestive of the sky at dusk", according to the colour company.
Classic Blue can also make for an eye-catching accent wall.
"Terra Del Espiritus" by Cornelius Martin
"Pantone’s selection of Classic Blue for 2020 is richer when you consider the history of the Colour of the Year franchise, which began 20 years ago in 1999. That year, the colour chosen was Cerulean, a serene shade that represented the excitement of a new millennium and offered a calming visual to the anxieties that preceded Y2K. Cerulean’s impact that year permeated the cultural zeitgeist, ranging from home decor trends to high fashion."
