We always look forward to the Pantone “Color of the Year” announcement. This year was especially excited because we love the hue — Classic Blue— so much. The color is very easy on the eyes, and it “highlights our desire for a dependable and stable foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era, “according to Pantone. The shade has a calming effect on any space, and we’re already seeing it pop up in lots of home decor goods and accessories. Here are a few of our favorite classic blue home decor picks we’ve come across so far this year.
This chair isn’t cheap. But if you’re going to splurge on classic blue home decor, Anthropolgie’s the place to do it. And since they’re currently having a sale, now’s the time to take the plunge if you’ve been on the fence. This luxe chair features smooth velvet and polished brass legs, giving it a sophisticated look you’ll love.
Another Anthropologie item with classic blue tones is this Velvet Ella Euro Sham. The soft floral print is both whimsical and on-trend, as flowers are another theme we’re currently seeing in the world of home decor. Don’t let the velvet material fool you into thinking these shams are too high maintenance for practical use — cleaning them is simple, as they can be machine washed and tumble dried on low.
These handcrafted, hand-painted vases feature unique, abstract designs against a white backdrop. Each vase is expertly created by artists in Thailand, and there are only 300 available, so grab yours while you can. They’d be great for showcasing some fresh winter blooms in your apartment.
