Another way of adding 2020 Pantone color is adding an accent wall in your home! And we have lots of ways to do this, like:

  • Painting the wall
  • Adding wall paper
  • Making a beautiful trimmed wall

Here is a gorgeous idea of walls with trim treatment in the Classic blue color. What do you think about it? Too bold for you or are you already planning where to put it?

You can also make an accent wall with wall paper. It’s quick and there are some really nice options in the market.

If you have never installed wall paper i recommend using adesive wall paper this will eliminate one step on the process and will actually make it easier for you to install.

Believe me, i tried to install wall paper without it being adhesive and boy it was really hard! You need to spread really well the glue, try to keep air bubbles out and be careful not to reap the paper because since the glue is liquid the paper gets even more fragile.

You don’t need me to tell you that everything i said above, actually happened to me! lol

This decorative item is the cheapest and easiest way to give any space of your home a new look. You can find pillows in all sizes and shapes, i’ll list some of the ones i liked the most below (if you want to check them out, just click on the image).


Throw blankets are a must for me! I think i have an old soul because, at the end of the day i get cold and need something warm and cozy to warm me up.

Place them in your sofa, arm chairs, your bed…anywhere! Throw blankets add a more lived in feeling, as well as, an inviting look.


Another great way to add big chunks of color in a space without painting it is adding the color in your curtains!

Patterned curtains with the blue as accent color or plain solid curtains, you can play with them and decide how you want to add interest to your walls.

I know, my last 2 options aren’t exactly very affordable but, i’ve got a solution for that if you are up for some little manual work.

And to proof you it is possible to reupholster furniture even if you don’t have experience, i found a great video from Taylor Alice showing that you only need patience and attention!

  1. Blue can be a hard color to work with because it can tend to darken up a room. We painted a half bath in our house a darker blue but did the bottom in a white wainscoting to break it up a bit. I like your tip on using a rug or throw pillows to add just enough of the color.

  2. While we don’t currently have one in our house, I have always loved the look that an accent wall gives. We have been talking about doing a complete overhaul in our bedroom, and if we do I will definitely be looking at adding one… I’m not totally sure what colour we would use, but blue is on the list!

  3. I am crazy about this color! it looks fantastic. Probably the best for me. yes I love blue. Pantone colors are always remarkable but if it’s blue color we talk about it’s even better. if you ask me I love it in any form: big or small

  4. light blue is great in the sky and the ocean and try it in the house and it is a different ball game. A wonderful take on everything to do with blue and lovely colors. Happy holidays.

  5. Love the Pantone Color of the Year and your ideas with home decor. It makes me want to decorate my living room

  6. I love accent walls. I put one in my house that is a really amazing combination of blue and grey. It is a favorite of mine, because I can accent it easily with a lighter silver color to have a really nice mix of light and dark colors. That is what I did with my curtains as well. The walls are mostly white, ceiling an egg shell color, and then the blue/grey accent wall. I then put up curtains and other accents that would work wonderfully with both colors. I’m also like you in that I stash blankets everywhere in my house, including my office. I am constantly cold, so even minus the aesthetic look and cozy vibe, they are just useful. You have inspired me to go make some pillows now. That is the one accent thing I hadn’t even considered.

    1. your home seems beautiful! i’m glad my ideas helped! looove throw blankets, it’s so nice to have beautiful decor that is useful as well right? i’m glad my ideas helped! =D

  7. I really like this color as well!! A fellow food blogger of mine is creating a recipe round up of all the blue vegan meals you can make! It’s going to look stunning!
