The Pantone Institute of Colour has picked out the colour that will dominate 2020 -- classic blue.

In these uncertain times, classic blue has been picked as the colour of the year due to its reliability.

Classic blue is a comfortable colour that is relatable, timeless and easy to spot in your day-to-day living.

Here are great ways to employ classic blue into your space this year.

You can test out classic blue in small doses like throw pillows, curtains, vases and other decorative pieces. Go for patterns, prints, colour and texture. Red, mustard, yellow, gold and copper will all bring out the best as you work with classic blue.
