There’s something so majestic and peaceful about a clear blue sky or a wide pond lapping at the shore. A beautiful spring day brings with it a sense of newness and rebirth, and a clear sky under a warm sun is something you could stare into for hours. Color of the Year Parkwater is a shade of blue that is classic and timeless, invoking these feelings from nature. It’s a color that you can paint on your walls to create a calm, relaxed atmosphere in your home.
This deep, muted blue color is remarkably uncomplicated. It effortlessly manages to create a sense of well-being wherever it is present. It’s also a nod to Pantone’s 2020 Color of the Year, Classic Blue, which was chosen for its anchoring and foundational qualities. A solid and dependable color, it feels like a soothing massage for the mind.
Parkwater also has a deep and meaningful historical context. Painters like Claude Monet and Eduard Manet developed pigments like it to paint sky and water scenes in the 1860s Impressionist Period. They knew this tone would convey the feelings of simplicity, effortless beauty and serenity that they wanted their audiences to feel. Natural colors like this are fantastic at helping ease people’s minds. Indeed, Parkwater conveys a simple message: “Everything is going to be okay.”

This shade of blue is especially good for large spaces and rooms, like bedrooms or living rooms. It maintains a sense of quiet and reflectivity that is perfect for everyday life.
