The 2020 Color of the Year: Classic Blue


The Pantone Color of the Year for 2020 is Classic Blue, a dark, clean blue that is comforting and soothing. "The indigo hue brings to mind both the constant and the classic; the sky at dusk, an impeccably tailored suit, serene waters, or a bowl of perfectly ripe blueberries."


Blue tiles have been increasing in popularity and availability for a few years now, and this soothing trend doesn't show signs of stopping.
