But when we dive in with our experts you will see it really be applied in so many different rooms and directions to create a flow of confidence, peace and tranquility in the decade ahead. Let’s explore the way this blue makes a statement in any home, but first...
What statement are you trying to make going into the new decade?
Let’s see how we can help you make that statement!
Find a Balance
Classic Blue is a very elegant color. It gives a space a feeling of sophistication and luxury. It’s a fairly dark, eye-catching shade that should be used in moderation. Sometimes we do an accent wall in the color; in other spaces we use it just for accessories. We tend to not use it too much in one room. Small amounts stand on their own without overwhelming a space.
Go clean, crisp, and classic with White Cordless Faux Wood
A brilliant white is a characteristic supplement to Classic Blue, says Sue Wadden, chief of shading advertising for Sherwin-Williams. "A crisp white room accented with blue on one wall or cabinets is a classic pairing, but is still fresh," Wadden says. "And depending on your decor, it can work for traditional, coastal, or glam styles" We recommend our White Cordless Faux Wood shades to fit perfectly with the classic blue or if you are really looking to bring pantone blue in your home, check out our Zebra Shades.
Bringing Pantone Blue into your home
In 2020 Let’s Experiment with a classic blue wall and lighting around your home to bring a confident, bold look.
Color trends don’t have to be just couches or accessories, they can be walls as well. With the right lighting, this classic blue is a bold statement in the daytime and the peaceful night sky in the evening. Keep that in mind when you approach your next home redecorating or remodeling project. For example, our DIY Zebra Shades Alps Wide Ice White (as pictured) can lend a soothing color tone to any room, perfect for relaxing and unwinding in peace. A classic blue wall mixed with a white ceiling and these shades truly brings out a confident feel to being home, safe, and total privacy.
Well, How bold are you feeling?
Here is some unexpected boldness for your taste.
Breaking in the new decade, confident in what’s to come!
Let’s See how we can GO BOLD!
Find the balance by choosing how bold or understated you want to go. Going bold means using larger pieces, like sofas or walls, or even entire kitchen cabinets. Achieving an a bold look means using medium to large sized accents. Pieces that incorporate Classic Blue, such as walls or cabinets can dominate the space and create the exact feel you were going for.
Or Let’s play it safe!
When in doubt, go for gray
How about a constant smooth blending fabric to fit with the blue? Neutral gray like our basic gray shade or for a neutral cement feel try out Eclipse Grey shades. It’s a great addition if you’re looking for a modern color scheme. Blue is related with quiet and quietness, which is perfect for rooms that have a gray mix. Being such a rich shading, it is likewise extraordinary for different spaces. Go with blue couches for a media room and our gray roller shades. Have gray blackout shades blend seamlessly with your blue bathroom tiling. Gray and blue will always be a safe choice, you simply cannot go wrong!
