Pantone Color of the Year: Classic Blue

It’s the color of the new horizon – the color of the sky when fresh change is just around the corner. Here’s how to bring it home.
Classic blue is more than a color. It’s a feeling that evokes change, in the most harmonious way. It’s the merging of skies and oceans at the break of dawn, of the blooming Iris flower caressed in morning’s dew, of rich blueberries aged in a savory fine wine. It is, in short, the color of inspiration. Synonymous with ‘royal blue,’ it infuses the air with a clean, calm sense of regality – it’s timeless, and yet somehow, always, cool.
