Each year, we eagerly await the arrival of Pantone’s Colour of the Year, and 2020’s certainly didn’t disappoint! Classic Blue is elegant and simple – a universally loved colour that can be used for a variety of interior design applications in both warm and cool tones.

“Instilling calm, confidence and connection, this enduring blue hue highlights our desire for a dependable and stable foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era”. – Pantone

One of the strongest hues of the colour spectrum, blue is considered to be calming, reassuring and serene – making it a suitable colour for use all throughout the home and providing an ideal choice for living rooms, bathrooms, kitchens and even hallways.

Set to make a prominent statement across interiors in 2020, we expect to see Classic Blue being used in a variety of ways throughout the home. From full redecoration plans, to smaller accessory updates, there are plenty of ways to incorporate this on-trend, yet timeless, colour into your home.

At GEMINI Tiles, we have a wide selection of wall and floor tiles if you’re looking to update your interiors with a trend-worthy finish.

From the deep tones of Poitiers Azure Blue to the striking patterns of Havana’s White Garden and Herald tiles, you have the option to experiment with colour and pattern – bringing a new lease of life to your home for the start of the new decade.

“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”.
– Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Colour Institute
