Pantone recently announced their annual Color of the Year – Classic Blue.
From their website, “Instilling calm, confidence, and connection, this enduring blue hue highlights our desire for a dependable and stable foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era.”
Because Classic Blue is, well, classic, I’ve worked with this dependable color multiple times. One of my favorite projects was for a retired couple in San Francisco who wanted to bring the colors of their favorite travel destination of Guatemala into their home.
In the master bedroom, we used the client’s own material to create a statement piece above the bed. The headboard, bed and footboard is upholstered in Classic Blue velvet. The bed is draped in a custom-sewn blanket of Classic Blue with brightly-colored tassels, while atop the nightstands sit beautiful glass lamps. At the foot of the bed is a bench, also custom-upholstered in the client’s own material from Guatemala.
In the guest bedroom, extensive custom cabinetry in Classic Blue allows for dual use as a home office. The wall bed cabinetry color is echoed by Classic Blue filing and storage drawers.
I look forward to seeing all the ways Classic Blue will appear in 2020 interiors!
