Decorating with “Classic Blue,” Pantone’s 2020 Color of the Year!

Life Looks Beautiful Against a Blue Backdrop!

What better color to be the Pantone’s 2020 Color of the Year than “Classic Blue”? Life simply looks beautiful against a blue backdrop. Blue compliments every neutral color and pairs well with so many others. As a color found in nature, it’s affiliated with water, air and the sky, and has been shown to bring about feelings of relaxation, security and calmness. We think Classic Blue, or any shade of blue, is a wonderful choice for home decorating.

Check out some of the inspiration we’ve gathered, both locally and beyond!

A Rochester designer we love working with, Rachel Clark, designed this room, which uses varying patterns, textures and shades of blue. Simply gorgeous. @rachelclarkdesigns

This beautiful kitchen was designed by Carolyn Stam Interiors in Rochester, NY. Such a clever way to bring in a pop of color with an appliance statement piece! @carolynstaminteriors

Reuben has grown up with a blue backdrop, and he is pretty happy with life!

Blue is a great choice no matter how you choose to use it. But if you’re thinking of adding blue to your floors, consider the hundreds of options of blue carpeting we carry at Messner Flooring in Pittsford and Greece. Shades of blues, various textures, patterns, materials, lengths and styles bring beautiful blues to life in your home. 

Psst.. If you think carpeting isn’t for you, have you considered custom area rugs made from our carpets? Both custom rugs and stair runners have become increasingly popular choices with our customers. They help to protect hard flooring and add warmth, comfort, dimension and color to your home. Custom rugs usually end up being much cheaper than the pre-made alternative, and are available in virtually any size and shape you can imagine. They are unique, and easier to match to your home with the thousands of options we have available in store.
