Since 2000, the Pantone Color Institute graphics company has chosen a Color of the Year, and the 2020 hue is PANTONE 19-4052 TCX, otherwise known as “Classic Blue.” The blue hue is indeed a classic–a primary color that’s simple, bright, and doesn’t pull any punches. It calls to mind blueberries, nautical motifs, and, yes, Facebook. Below are some ideas for putting a pop of this cheery color in your space and your life, from apartment-friendly sofas and chairs to necessary accessories like a self-cleaning water bottle.

The easiest way to add color to your home is to literally paint it on. Bring a dose of color to a room detail, an accent wall, or, as is the very current style, an entire room. Benjamin Moore’s “Blueberry Hill,” and Farrow & Ball’s “Ultra Marine Blue” No. W29 (also pictured in the room shown above) are close kin to the Pantone shade.
