Into The Blue: How To Inject Pantone’s Colour of The Year Into Your Home

Posted on: 02.02.2020

If you didn’t know it yet, Pantone has officially announced ‘Classic Blue’ as its colour trend for 2020. (You can always count on us to keep you in the loop). This is great news for the Homebirds, as blue is a colour we love and use A LOT. Read on for our top tips on how you can stay in fashion and use this colour in your home…

Rework Your Walls

The boldest way to embrace a blue hue is to dive in deep and redecorate. Feature walls are still a thing but you shouldn’t be afraid to go BIG. Doing all four walls of a room is not as scary as it seems and often so much more effective. (Ignore the myth that coloured walls make a room appear smaller – it’s simply not true.)

Switch Your Sofa

For a slightly more subtle approach to this colour trend, you could consider updating your sofa. Keeping walls neutral, a beautiful new blue sofa could be just the colour injection you need. For the most current and comfortable designs, you need look no further than Cabyn’s latest collection. They have a vast array of ‘on trend’ styles with a massive choice of fabrics and colourways. They’re our ‘go to’ brand for beautifully bespoke but affordable sofas. Here’s a few of their bestsellers in blue…
