Our guide to mixing and matching Classic Blue

Our guide to mixing and matching Classic Blue

A traditional and enduring blue, PANTONE 19-4052, or Classic Blue as it prefers to be called, has been crowned King of colour for 2020. Whilst, as the name suggests, classics never go out of style, we also believe there’s always room to update and uplift them. Here's our guide to mix and match Classic Blue like a pro. Because two colours are better than one. 

With Orange

For those who want to make a statement, the blue / orange combo is a no brainer. These two colours - opposite on the colour wheel - sit in sync, helping to revitalise any room, with a light and bright, easy-breezy air.

With Green

Ever heard the saying ‘blue and green should never be seen'? This is a rule that was made to be broken. Rich and dramatic, these tones pair perfectly with the blue offering a solid base for the vibrant green to pop.
