Blinding Inspiration: PANTONE’s Colour of the Year 2020
A new year means it’s time for the tastemakers at PANTONE to announce their new ‘colour of the year’. The chosen colour will be adopted by people around the world, from designers and artists to people searching for a new look for their living room, kitchen or bedroom. In years gone by, the various colours of the year have had weird and wonderful names, from 2006’s ‘Sand Dollar’ to the ‘Tangerine Tango’ of 2012, but this year the colour’s name couldn’t be more simple: ‘Classic Blue’.
Classic Blue – or PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue, to give it its technical name – is described by PANTONE as “suggestive of the sky at dusk”, the deep hues of the colour provide a peaceful, serene feeling, which is perfect for bedrooms and living rooms alike.
Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the PANTONE Color Institute, said:
“We are living in a time that requires trust and faith. It is this kind of constancy and confidence that is expressed by PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue, a solid and dependable blue hue we can always rely on. Imbued with a deep resonance, Classic Blue provides an anchoring foundation. A boundless blue evocative of the vast and infinite evening sky, Classic Blue encourages us to look beyond the obvious to expand our thinking, challenging us to think more deeply, increase our perspective and open the flow of communication.”
Kingston Blinds are always eager to build our product range around PANTONE’s colour of the year, and this year is no different. We have a huge range of blinds in blue, and you’re sure to find something you like.
Our Bella Empire roller blind is strongly reminiscent of Classic Blue, with a deep hue that will look fantastic in any room. It’s a blackout blind, so you can enjoy complete privacy and shut the light out when you need to.

The Unilux Imperial roller blind is another beautiful blue, very similar to the colour of the year. Deep and peaceful, this would provide a superb soothing colour for a bathroom or a bedroom, and its low-maintenance nature means you can simply wipe it clean when you need to.
