Colour is believed to influence our lives in many ways – from moods and feelings to our eating habits. Picking a favourite colour feels very personal and requires some serious introspection. However, according to YouGov, 33% of people in Great Britain share their favourite. 

You’ve guessed it – it’s blue!

The colour blue is evocative of honesty and trust. Reassuring, reliable and calm, it sparks optimism and positivity we often lack these days. Pantone Classic Blue sits somewhere between a refreshing ocean and the sky at dusk. It comes as a response to our search for peace and stability in this everchanging, turbulent world. 

Blue stands for visionary, whereas classic suggests grounded.

Blue is often associated with ethereal and abstract. Like dreams. Or technology. 

Classic Blue marries the digital with traditional to take the best from both worlds. The classic combination of white and blue feels fresh and airy, and suits almost any interior style out there.

Think antique porcelain. Or navy print.

For those who don’t shy away from experimenting and enjoy fearless colour combinations in their homes, contrasting the pair of red and blue might come as (an obvious, but) a refreshing idea. It’s been a while since this classic duo went undercover and we are happy to report its glorious comeback in the months ahead.

Red and blue can be a powerful match, but since red enhances the saturation of blue make sure to balance them properly, so they don’t clash.

Classic Blue and Pink interiors

Blue is for boys and pink is for girls. Well, not anymore. Millennial Pink, dusty pink, or blush pink – call it as you wish, but there is something about this colour that keeps everyone hooked. However, if you look closely, you will notice that the pinks are shifting away from pastels towards more desaturated, grown-up feel.

Classic Blue and pink, like yin and yang, contrast each other beautifully. Blue gives pink gravity and grace, while pink keeps blue from becoming too stiff and dull.

Blue and Brown interiors

Not all blues go with all browns, but there is no doubt that the warm wooden furniture harmonizes perfectly with cool tones of blue. Although pairing blue and brown can be a wonderful idea, always keep an eye on the tones and ratio and consider introducing white, light green or golden accents to brighten the space.

This ocean-inspired colour combo is utterly playful and summery. The coastal vibes of blue and green colour schemes bring a new wave of optimism, suggesting warmth and cosiness of the utopian world. This colour combo feels light and fluid, mature and childlike. It smells like childhood, but yet again feels futuristic. 

If you enjoy mixing furniture and decor from different eras (from mid-century modern to the 80s) and have a soft spot for geometry in design, this colour combo is perfect for you.
