Uni-blue is a deep chromatic color that transitions from cobalt blue to near navy. It is part of a color continuum that connects spaces, people and ideas.

The CMG describes Uni-blue as energy balancing when it is combined with coral red, bright yellow and metallic gold and thought provoking when combined with plum, dark brown and charcoal.

I saw cobalt blue at Cevisama in February and expect this shade as well as light blue closer to Pantone’s Serenity to be popular for interior design this year.

No doubt its classic appeal is why I and probably many others are drawn to it.
