Sacré Bleu!

Pantone have just announced their Colour of the Year for 2020. It's blue.
Classic blue - a shade reminiscent of the sky at dusk.
It has been chosen because is all about reliability in an uncertain world. Our brains find blue to be a restful, calming colour. Mind you, watching the video, I did not find the blue liquid coming out of the teapot very reassuring!
Vogue has immediately produced an article telling us how to bring this colour into our homes.
I have had a quick look around my home - which is already very blue and spotted three things which show I am right on trend already.
My lovely blue jug. OK it has been collecting dust on the bedroom windowsill for a while- but I think I shall move it downstairs to the lounge now.
My one blue and white Willow Pattern plate - bought in a CS when I was doing a Literacy Lesson on the associated Chinese Legend. Bob is not particularly fond of the WP - but I shall use it as a serving plate in coming days.
Finally my beautiful "Let there be light" lamp. Bob bought this for me many years ago. It has various Bible verses about light on it - all in shades of blue and white. I love it.
Currently it lives on the landing- providing a gentle light to show the way to the bathroom during the night!
So yes, I already have my calming blue influences - and have no need whatsoever to dash out and buy anything else.
My favourite colour is red- but I have a lot of blue in my home, and I do wear a fair bit of blue as well.

It is certainly much more restful than last year's colour - Living Coral
Do you like blue? Is there much of it in your home or your wardrobe?


  1. I am pleased to hear that my favourite colour is to be the Pantone Colour of the Year for 2020 For once in my life I shall be on trend!

  2. I love that shade of blue, and rescued a pottery jug from my parent's 'box of stuff to go to charity' many years ago - it sits on the bathroom window ledge and gladdens my heart every morning!

  3. Lots of blue in my wardrobe. I don't really follow these trends but I can at least say I'm on trend when I wear something in the colour of the year.

    1. I love your baby blue hoodie dress which you posted about last November. You were definitely ahead of the ternd with that one!

  4. Blue is definitely my colour and always has been.
    I have a similar blue jug too!

  5. Oh, I knew there was a reason why my house is full of blue and white china! :D In fact, I have a Willow Pattern platter, that matches yours! It was a Christmas gift from a friend of mine, one year.
