For our June Color of the Month, we chose Classic Blue as our feature. This timeless hue is perfect for long summer days, sailboat parties and staying cool in the heat!
Leatrice Eiseman, the Executive Director at the Pantone Color Institute® describes Classic Blue as, “Reliable and thoughtful, PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue inspires calm, confidence and harmony. Serving as an anchor to the Spring/Summer 2015 palette, Classic Blue is a shade that is strong and reliable. Just as with the sea, because of its waterborne qualities, this Classic Blue is perceived as thoughtful and introspective.”
Pairs Well With:
PANTONE 16-1328 Sandstone PANTONE 18-1438 Marsala

March was filled with icy Aquamarine. In April we were inspired by buttery yellow Custard and Lucite® Green kept us inspired in May. Keep following along throughout the year to see the other colors we choose!
