Reasons to Love Blue

31st January 2020

Although it is likely subtle, you may have noticed the predominance of a particular colour surrounding you from one year to the next. In fashion, interiors or product packaging, some years seem awash with pinks or greens, others with taupes or greys.

The reason for this may be the selection of the Pantone colour of the year. The leading Colour Institute of the world, Pantone selects a colour from its extensive range through careful consideration of trends to represent the year.

2020, a new year and a new decade is represented by Pantone 19-4052, Classic Blue.
