Pantone Color Institute, the great world reference in color research, has selected a classic color tone as next year’s color. The global uncertainty, they say, needs the color of nightfall that invites reflection on what will happen next.

Classic Blue 19-4052. This is the name and surname of the color of the year for this 2020, according to Pantone Color Institute. This authority on color from New Jersey (United States) has been painting each year in one color for two decades and its opinion is followed with devotion by decorators, designers, interior designers…
For Lurie Pressman, Vice President of the Pantone Color Institute, this classic blue reminds her of the evening sky and anticipates “what will happen next”. It was not a random appointment but the closing of a cycle, since in 1999 – a year of uncertainty before the change of millennium – another blue color was selected, cerulean. Twenty years later, the instability that has swept the world from Hong Kong to Syria has led Pantone to opt for the classic blue that brings, explains Pressman, peace of mind and confidence to an uncertain global environment.
The sensations surrounding classic blue
During the presentation of the Color of the Year, Pantone made an effort to make classic blue more than just a color. A sensory dimension to the color of 2020 with a fragrance of sky and sea, a taste of flowering vines or blue raspberry syrup, a soft and velvety touch, like that of a new and luxurious sofa, and the sound of vivid nostalgia.

The color of 2020 is easy to incorporate into your daily life. Accessories such as a scarf, a watch strap or a candle will serve to follow this year’s color trend.
