Pantone 2020 Color of the Year: Classic Blue

Pantone’s 2020 Color of the Year is Classic Blue. It is described as “a timeless and enduring blue hue elegant in its simplicity.” I have started gravitating toward blue a bit more than ever before. I recently had my dining room and kitchen painted light blue (more on that later). Here are a few fun favorites.


1. The pattern of this reversible quilt set makes it a perfect centerpiece of a master bedroom. (Bed Bath & Beyond). 2. These blue pants would really dress up a neutral top.(Loft) 3. Polka dots make this children’s dress so classic and cute. (Primary) 4. This pea coat is the perfect combination of two shades of blue. (Anthropologie) 5. These glasses are so pretty and would make a great gift. (Kate Spade) 6. This accent chair would be a perfect pop of color in an otherwise neutral living room or guest room. (Target)

Pantone 2019 Color of the Year: Living Coral

Pantone’s 2019 Color of the Year is Living Coral. I’m liking this bright shade during this very long winter, especially today when yet more snow is forecasted. Here are a few fun items in this cheerful color.


1. The ruffle detail on this shirt adds a fun touch. (Anthropologie) 2. I’m absolutely in love with these flats. I haven’t ordered them yet, but they’re haunting my dreams. (Modcloth) 3. This dress makes me think of a beach vacation even though it’s February and freezing today. (H&M) 4. Every year Ulta comes out with a nail polish in the Pantone Color of the Year. I’m loving this one for a pedi. (Ulta) 5. I love Primary for beautiful basics in rich hues. This coral shade is actually called Azalea. (Primary) 6. This Pantone swatch mug would be a perfect gift for the graphic designer in your life. (Redbubble)

Pantone 2017 Color of the Year: Greenery

Anyone who knows me knows I despise winter and love when spring finally arrives. This year I am even more excited because we have a spring baby on the way. I love Pantone’s 2017 Color of the Year, Greenery, because it pays homage to that wonderful time of year. Here are some items in that hue to get you excited for spring!


1. This tea kettle is far more cheerful than my stainless steel one. (Kate Spade) 2. This nail polish is actually even called Pantone Greenery. (Ulta) 3. A green dress would transition from season to season beautifully. (H&M) 4. I need these sandals even though there is still snow and ice as far as the eye can see. (Coach) 5. Green ankle pants are so much more fun than black. (Banana Republic) 6. Yankee Candle enthusiasts will remember the Green Grass fragrance, a cult classic. Meadow Showers offers up a similar fresh scent. (Yankee Candle)
