December 12, 2019

The highly anticipated Pantone Colour of the Year for 2020 has been announced, and it’s not as obscure as you might think. Drum roll pleeeeease…Can you guess? The winner is Pantone’s Classic Blue. It’s simple, traditional, a timeless favourite. Here’s what they had to say;

“A timeless and enduring blue hue, PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue is elegant in its simplicity. Suggestive of the sky at dusk, the reassuring qualities of the thought-provoking PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue highlight our desire for a dependable and stable foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era.”

SLX Classic Blue Blinds

In the meantime we’ll show you some blue roller and vertical blind fabrics that are bang on trend for the season ahead. Trust us, we’d never leave you behind when it comes to interior design!

We expect to see the likes of Rio Pacific, Como Lago and Sicily Stormy Sky (blackout) in the interiors of faithful and fashionable designers. Whether its a complimenting blue or a simple blue splash, these SLX Blinds are destined to be hot favourites. Topaz Denim and Venice Pewter, while not classic blue, are great tones to accent and would work well as blinds if you have deep blue walls.

For those of you who feel the Pantone Classic Blue would be a bit of a commitment for your interior we’ve selected a collection of similar tones that just might work! For some fancy floral options with a classic blue influence – try Cherry Blossom Kimono or Alice Bluebell. These colours are ideal for blue interiors with a grey tone. Very on trend! On the other hand, if it’s a leafy motif that tickles your interests Forest Saxon Blue is a must. Soft and artistic it’s a really beautiful fabric that also comes in a rosemist colourway. If you like blue, but maybe not the classic kind, Herringbone Breeze Blue and Melton Blue Haze should definitely be on your list to choose from.

With all of that in mind 2020 is shaping up to be an exciting and fashionable year. Check out our full collection of roller and vertical blind fabrics at your SLX retailer today!
