Ugh (do we really want to do this again) • Color Blocking • I didn’t read this anywhere, but I notice a lot of black in home decor-maybe its because we need something to contrast all the gray • Farm Life • Tribal • Pets • Bees • Florals of all types • Lemons & Citrus • Hand Lettering • Fantasy Unicorns & Mermaids • Celestial • Vintage Floral • Teal and of course Classic Blue.

Classic Blue 2020

Classic Blue

In case you missed it, Pantone released it’s color of the year for 2020. Here is the Pantone Textile Cotton Code converted to Pantone Coated Colors, Pantone Uncoated Color, CMYK and RGB classic blue. These are the closest matches I could find in the coated colors, as you can see the conversion is not perfect.

You can download the Adobe .ase file free. I love this color. I think its very versatile and would be great to use for home decor items as well as any type of graphic design project, brochures, packaging etc.

For more palettes created by Pantone using Classic Blue: Pantone Palettes.

This doesn’t solve those problems, but it does give you more options to choose from when picking/matching colors and may enable you to get a little bit closer to the screen version of a color. Did you know colors are infinite? We can never have enough color!
