We’re still waiting to see what Pantone’s 2019 Color of the Year will be, but, as other home brands have begun to announce their selections, it looks as if blue is on the horizon.
Blue hues are popping up everywhere, from Behr’s 2019 winner—Blueprint, which is warmer than denim but softer than navy—to Pantone’s rich, royal Princess Blue, featured in the company’s 2019 Spring/Summer Fashion Color Report.
Even if Pantone chooses a bright pink or orange, isn’t blue always a winner? Its chameleonic ability to complement any ensemble makes it a favorite worldwide. Speaking of the world, even that is mostly covered in blue.
So if you’re wondering what to promote for your holiday sales—or planning what to hunt at JCK Tucson in February (it’s getting close!)—the answer is not so out of the blue: It’s, well, blue.
