The paint manufacturers have made some exciting Color of the Year selections for 2020, have you seen them? Overall, they embrace a similar theme to help inspire by using colors of nature and colors that calm. Design with these goals in mind is not a new concept. The impact of paint color in our home, school, or work environment invokes a feeling and affects us. These paint companies have selected the following colors as their 2020 Color of the Year:
Behr: Back to Nature S340-4 is described as offering a calm, gracious, and balanced color that is “inspired by nature.”
Sherwin-Williams: Naval SW 6244 is described as calm and grounding to “pave the way for the wellness of the mind, body, and soul.“
Benjamin Moore: First Light 2102-70 is described as revitalizing the spirit and blooming with potential.
PPG: Chinese Porcelain PPG1160-6 is described as imparting calmness and restful sleep and offering a spirit of hopefulness.
Valspar: Selected a Natured Inspired Color Palette of 12 Colors that will “bring the tranquility of nature and the outdoor world into the home.” This color palette touches on a topic, biophilic design, that I want to address in a future article.
