Classic Blue Inspiration

Get Inspired by Pantone’s 2020 Color of the Year: Classic Blue

Who doesn’t love the color blue?
This year, use Pantone’s 2020 Color of the Year as an excuse to delve into your richest blues for your art, home, and workspace.

Let us help! Check out some awesome framing projects inspired with the color to kick off our newest decade.

This Confetti moulding is a smart, modern complement to a wide range of frame designs and can be used on its own or stacked with other mouldings.
Inspired by the color and exuberance of the traditional Brazilian Carnival festival the Carnivale Collection brings a much needed bold color palette to Larson-Juhl’s line up.
Each individual stick of Bella’s Rothko is entirely hand-painted by a female artist in a small studio in Italy on finger-joined pine. Our Rothko’s look great on all modern art and photography, mid-century collectibles and children’s masterpieces.
Bella’s Jelly Bella collection features swirls of dyed, burled woods covered in a layer of rich lacquer. This frame adds cheer, brightness and color to any room. 

Here are some finished projects where the art includes the theme of Classic Blue:

Top left: Michigan City artist Kimberly Beck uses the background blue to match the blue of the Belted Kingfisher and complements the strong color with a rusty orange frame to allow the blue to really pop. The look of Larson Juhl’s Foundry frame gives the look of industrial, oxidized metal complementing both contemporary and rustic styles of decor.
Right: This Art Deco styled poster for the Los Angeles Public Library is paired nicely with Larson Juhl’s Capiz shelled frame, Jepara.The gold’s accent the rich blues to give a cohesive look to the overall design.
Bottom Left: Chesterton artist Holly Jackson uses the floater frame to perfection with the simple soft golds allowing the intense colors of the abstract work to be the focus of attention.
