Don’t be blue this January with PLAANK…

Don’t be blue this January with PLAANK…

Like so many countries, January is perceived as a gloomy month here in the UK!

Those who have celebrated Christmas may be feeling the financial aftermath pinch, and the weather at this time of year tends to be cold and miserable. Coupled with half of the UK population being unhappy about Brexit, which is happening at the end of January and it’s easy to see why January has been tarnished with being a miserable month!

January needn’t be all doom and gloom, much like the perception of the colour blue! In fact, ‘Classic Blue’ has been named as the Pantone colour of the year for 2020.

This intensely rich shade of blue is not dissimilar to cobalt blue, a shade full of warmth and allure. Classic Blue however has subtle accent tones of petrol, making it seemingly more sophisticated than cobalt. 

At PLAANK we have some fabulous ideas and products predominantly using blue. Our Pinterest boards, including one dedicated to the Pantone colour for 2020, are sure to inspire! Be sure to check them out if you’re thinking of updating a wall or room in your home with a blue colour, but not totally sure which shade is right for you!

Bijou Creek Blue’ features an assortment of ‘weathered’ finishes, all reminiscent of the seaside…

From blue beach huts and sandwashed glass to frothy white seafoam, this fabulous wall panelling is sure to remind you of warmer days to come!

However, if you’d prefer to play it safe and accessorise with blue, finishes such as ‘Culebra Peak White’ or ‘Red Rock Grey’ look equally fabulous with a stylish aqua sofa or teal and chestnut brown tub chairs.

One recent contract for an opticians decided upon ‘Rocky Mountain Grey’ as the wallcovering choice to tie in with a predominantly neutral and brown interior, offset by a sofa, upholstered in a pared back shade of teal.
