This is Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2020. To quote their website: “Instilling calm, confidence, and connection, this enduring blue hue highlights our desire for a dependable and stable foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era.”
Suffice it to say that Pantone’s vision of the future isn’t what we have experienced throughout this year.
And yet, hope remains.
This is my last Color Theory editorial before my family and I made a major life transition, relocating to a new part of the country and welcoming our third baby (due in March!). Blue is my favorite color, the one I most gravitate toward in my wardrobe and as an accent in our home. I collect Blue Willow china for daily use, and Chinese ginger jars grace my living room bookshelves. And this description from Pantone fits my hope and prayer as we start this new chapter in life.
This was my inspiration board:
We used Sweet Root Village’s blue wall, and a paper backdrop to ground the color, and then let our imaginations run wild. So thankful for such an incredible collaborative team and the chance to create beauty for beauty’s sake.
