“Combining our desire for stability, creativity, and more spontaneous design approaches, the color palette for Spring/Summer 2020 infuses heritage and tradition with a colorful youthful update that creates strong multi-colored combinations as well as energizing and optimistic pairings,” said Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute.

Among the colors in the Spring/Summer 2020 palette is the PANTONE® 2020 Color of the Year: Classic Blue. This color aims to bring a sense of peace and tranquility to today’s fast-paced world, very similar to the way your pool does!

There are a lot of great colors in this season’s color palette, so don’t feel like you have to pick just one. Start with a few statement pieces in one color to get the point across, make a visual impact with complimentary colors and utilize a classic neutral to tie the palette together.

Using the classic neutrals as furniture is always a great place to start – the color of your deck, chairs, tables, baskets, etc. Then layer the seasonal colors as accent pieces with flowers, vases, rugs, pillows, towels, cushions and more! You can create any type of atmosphere you’re looking for – from classic to colorful and calming to chic.

So, without further ado, meet the top 12 colors and four classic neutrals:

  • Flame Scarlet – burning bright red that exudes confidence and determination
  • Saffron – a golden yellow that adds flavorful brilliance
  • Classic Blue – boundless blue that opens us up to a world of possibilities
