Feeling Blue? 8 Unique Ways to Incorporate this Classic Color into Your Home

If you were taken aback by Pantone’s announcement that Classic Blue was 2020’s Color of the Year, you weren’t alone! Blue has always been a popular color, of course, but it was rarely seen as a trendy or contemporary choice - until now. Inspired by Pantone’s explanation that Classic Blue will “bring a sense of peace and tranquility to the human spirit,” we are sharing 8 brilliant ideas on how to incorporate blue (in all its shades) into your decor.

Paint the Walls Blue

Living Room Blue Painted Walls

Via SFGate. Blue walls are soothing when done right, but can look overbearing if applied with a heavy hand. Don’t apply the color on every wall, and be sure to add contrasting elements like fresh greenery, wood furniture, and white accent pieces.
