If you’re a fan of blue, you’ll love Pantone’s Colour of the Year for 2020. Pantone’s Colour of the Year influences a wide range of visual culture and industries around the world, including interior and kitchen design. The selection for this year’s colour is bold and very traditional — Classic Blue.
Classic Blue is a perfect colour to use in your dream kitchen, as it can help you to create a space that is peaceful, rich, and luxurious. Whether you like Classic Blue or are curious about how to incorporate a bold colour into your dream kitchen, here are a few ideas!
Classic Blue is a highly versatile colour — it’s available in a range of hues that can evoke the exact atmosphere dream of creating. You can easily incorporate a vibrant and bold blue in your dream kitchen by selecting luxurious coloured cabinets, or if you’d like you could soften it by selecting a lighter hue.
Don’t forget you don’t have to use the same colour on every single cabinet! An easy way to create depth and dimension in your space is to vary the colours and shades of your new cabinetry.
In our experience, blue coloured cabinets flawlessly complement other textures like wood, stone, and any type of metal fixtures. Our expert designers will work with you to ensure your exquisite blue cabinets perfectly complement your home!
Our designers will often recommend an accent or feature wall to help accentuate the chosen cabinets, fixtures, and as a way to add personality to the kitchen. A feature wall can give you the flexibility to change the appearance of your kitchen without needing to start over.
Feature walls can be changed as often as you like and will work with bold statement colours like Classic Blue, or any other colour you can imagine! We often recommend feature walls as a way to add colour and to keep the cabinets neutral as it makes them much more versatile.
Classic Blue works as an accent or feature wall because it can help create a soothing atmosphere in the kitchen. Blue is the perfect colour if you want a kitchen that’s inspired by the ocean, beach, or a sunny and luxurious resort. Plus, blue looks stunning when combined with lighter blues, greys, black, white, green, yellow, and even brown.
Accessorising your dream kitchen with classic blue curtains, chairs, or even artwork can be a great way to incorporate Pantone’s colour of the year. Choosing the right accessories can help create a cohesive aesthetic in your kitchen.
For example, if you like blue but want to recreate a colour palette reminiscent of the ocean, you can accentuate specific areas with neutrals, blue-green items, and complex textures. If you really like the ocean feel, but want to keep things in a more neutral colour scheme, you could choose a beige, white, and brown kitchen with rich blue accents.
Whether you prefer to use classic blue to make a bold statement or if your tastes lean towards the more subtle side, we can help you bring your dream kitchen to life!
