it’s that time of year again, and pantone has announced their color of 2020 — classic blue! they have said “It’s a color that anticipates what’s going to happen next,” said Laurie Pressman, the vice president of the pantone Color Institute, which selects the Color of the Year. “What’s the future going to bring as we move into the evening hours?” i love the idea of that, and lately, i’ve really noticed the color of the sky as the sun sets in laguna is exactly that — a beautiful shade of deep blue. blue is such a versatile color — it can be dramatic to decorate with and it can be really bold (think painting your walls solid navy blue!) or if you think of a seaside cottage, blue can be really very calming, and quite traditional, too. here’s a look at my take on the pantone color of the year.
