A guide to Pantone's colour of the year

It’s not always easy to introduce a new trend into your home, especially if it’s a bit too bold or doesn’t readily match with the décor you have. Pantone’s colour of the year 2020, Classic Blue, is a versatile and timeless hue that makes using a trend-driven colour easy.

Classic blue is a delectable colour that can be injected into your home in so many different ways, from bold statements to subtle highlights. This regal shade has a subtle impact and works with a variety of tonal hues, as well as bolder shades like pinks, corals and oranges. This year add a classic blue twist to your bedroom with our range of beds.

Blue’s biggest strength is its versatility, matching with all kinds of furniture and interior decoration – from country house chic to luxe glamour and everything in between. Injecting this into your home is as easy as adding accent furnishings like cushions and rugs or vases and candles. So, just throw a royal blue blanket at the end of our  Lisa wooden bed or add some cute cushions in blues across our  Leah wooden bed. 

Another great tip for including blue in your home is to use a variety of tones and textures to keep it feeling fresh. Pairing this rich blue with a cooler pale blue will make your home feel modern and clean. If you want to make your rooms feel rich and glamorous just add gold, brass or copper accessories like lamps and wire baskets for modern luxury. 


Our Indy metal bed frame in blue is a unique way to include the colour of the year in your bedroom as it brings an industrial element to any home. This simple and stunning industrial bed frame works with burnt oranges and neutral bedding giving a masculine touch to your master. The eye-catching tang of orange combined with the rich classic blue of our Indy bed frame brings a trendy atmosphere to your room. Don’t forget to add items from our Sheffield range to create your perfect industrial bedroom.

Another chic way to incorporate classic blue into your room is to create an accent wall using a deep blue paint, or take it a step further and paint your whole room along with the ceiling to create a true sanctuary for sleep.

Just like we have, pair your blue feature wall with a velvet ottoman bed in either pink or mustard yellow. Our Elle pink velvet storage bed comes in the dreamiest of pale pinks and contrasts beautifully with the bold nature of a blue feature wall. Or for a more sumptuous bedroom ambience, our Otto mustard yellow ottoman bed enhances the jewel tones of a classic blue wall.

For a truly classic injection of this blue just add our Elle bed in blue to your bedroom. With chesterfield like buttoning on the headboard, this bed is simply charming. Elle pairs beautifully with our range of Fyfield benches in grey and cream, helping to add a classic country charm to your bedroom. Either place our three basket bench at the end of the bed as a gorgeous place to store blankets and cushions, or use it as a place to hide extra shoes and bags in the corner of your room. Our blue Elle velvet bed frame is the perfect match for grey décor as it stops the interior design from becoming too sombre by bringing in the rich tones of classic blue.

Create a modern bedroom with the use of our blue Otto velvet bed frame  alongside black accent furniture, such as our simple black bedside table and chest of drawers. Adding simple black accents will make the upholstered velvet bed pop, drawing the eyes to the centre of your room. Or for an extra splash of glamour, couple this luxe bed with our Aleanor range of bedside tables and dressing tables in mirrored or black glass. The  unexpected boldness of the Otto bed in royal blue makes it ideal for injecting this trendy tone into your room.
