Deep blue skies ahead in home decor.

TORONTO, CANADA: Dulux Paints by PPG Industries unveils its 2020 Colour of the Year – Chinese Porcelain (DLX1160-6). This rich and traditional hue combines the energy and brightness of cobalt blue with a muted, dark navy tone, emitting a feeling of calm, restfulness and hope.

In today’s fast-paced, data-driven world where stress and anxiety are all too common, people can find refuge from their blues by surrounding themselves with, well, blue. Not just any blue, though – think deep, comforting, inky cobalt blue.

According to McDonald, Senior Brand Manager, Dulux Paints by PPG, the trending earth-tone aesthetic will be reflected in all facets of home decor in the coming year, highlighted by uncluttered spaces with organic, deep mineral and metallic tones that delight the senses.

With natural materials such as wood and rattan dominating this design movement, Dulux Paints by PPG has, for the first time, also announced a stain Colour of the Year for 2020 – Teak, a warm, semi-transparent medium-brown stain that has a 1970s retro vibe with a richness that fits today’s world.

An ideal complement to Chinese Porcelain and part of the Dulux Professional Wood Finishes line, Teak has a raw, organic feel that brings out the best of inky cobalt blue, whether used for a home’s interior or exterior.

Other complementary trending colours that pair well with both Chinese Porcelain and Teak are deep mineral tones such as Dulux Paints’ Gracious Glow (DLX1116-5) yellow-olive green, Talavera (DLX1018-5) warm taupe, Brown Clay (DLX1199-6) soft terracotta and Grey Marble (DLX1002-4) stone grey. The combination of these nod-to-nature hues delivers an ambiance of state-of-the-art luxury in its simplest form, particularly when accessorized with warm metal accents and linear geometric patterns.

“Everyone today is looking for an escape from technology, a way to slow down and infuse simplicity into their lives in an uplifting environment. This is, in part, why we’re craving blues like Chinese Porcelain. Exuding depth, richness and drama, next year’s blue brings us closer to natural elements such as the sea and sky – creating lavish serenity in any space,” added McDonald.
