Pantone Colour of the Year 2020

Lido 28 Living Room

For over 20 years, the Pantone Colour Institute select a new Colour of the Year, based on global research which looks for recurring patterns or colours in daily life situations, with the research and selection process lasting nearly nine months.

Pantone states that the Colour of the Year is actually “…a colour snapshot of what we see taking place in our global culture that serves as an expression of a mood and an attitude.”

Pantone’s Colour of the Year has influenced product development and purchasing decisions in multiple industries, including fashion, home furnishings, and industrial design, as well as product packaging and graphic design.

The Pantone Colour of the Year 2020 is ‘Classic Blue’. According to Pantone’s official website, Classic Blue instils 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. “Classic Blue is a solid and dependable blue hue we can always rely on” Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Colour Institute.

MOJO Homes use the ‘Classic Blue’ hue throughout a number of our Display Homes, whether it be in the decor and styling, internal selections and finishes, wallpaper, wall paint or facades.

Our customers have always responded really well to this colour and we continue to receive positive feedback time and time again. We think Pantone were right on the money when choosing this colour for 2020! Some of our most popular displays in fact, all include ‘Classic Blue’ and a lot of our customers have been inspired to use this tone in their very own MOJO homes after seeing it in our displays. - Sandra Setian, MOJO Homes Interior Designer. 

‘Classic Blue’ is featured in the following display homes

•    Nova 32, HomeWorld Kellyville

•    Rhapsody 28, HomeWorld Warnervale

‘Classic Blue’ and other navy tones have always been popular with MOJO Homes Interior Designer, Sandra Setian, with the Nova 32 on display at HomeWorld Kellyville being one of the first displays to use this hue within its Scandi inspired styling.

Seeing deep blues in interiors always instils a sense of calm, much like staring out to sea. The colour and tone help make a profound connection to the ocean and our vital bond to water as our lifeblood. The dark colour provides fantastic contrast within a space, without the heaviness of charcoal or black tones. - Sandra Setian
