Chinese Porcelain —Color That Brings Your Calmness and Elegance—PPT Color of 2020

When we are still embracing all of the shades of Pantone color of the year 2019 –Live Coral, PPG, the paint company with 135 years history just recently introduced its Color of the Year 2020—Chinese Porcelain.  Just by the name, your mind starts to imagine those crisp Chinoiserie blue-and-white.  Yes, it is kind of blueish color, combining rich cobal blue and moody ink blue. It’s calm, elegant, modern, chic.

Chinese Porcelain—PPG1160-6

Maybe because summer is here and I immediately fell in love with this color. I feel it is so ease on eyes and have a depth.

“In a world where sleep is viewed as a luxury and the anxiety of a fast-paced world is all too real, it’s only fitting that the color trends for this upcoming year offer escapism in today’s technologically-driven society. Hand-selected by PPG’s global color experts, the PPG paint brand’s 2020 Color of the Year, Chinese Porcelain (PPG1160-6) is a blend of cobalt and moody, ink blue that imparts calmness and restful sleep while also offering the spirit of hopefulness – a commodity in a restless world.”

And  the most important part is that I am so eager to find out how the design talents apply this colors in creative ways.   Let’s start from fashion.

Coastal Maximalism

Every time when people talk about California coastal interiors, it is always kind of either white, cream or blueish color palettes with signature California lay-back vibes. But not for this one.  It is located right at Corona Del Mar , So Cal and has a perfect polished modern classical style with maximalism in mind. The home is owned by Jerrod Blandino and Jeremy Johnson, the co-founders of the California-based cosmetics brand Too Faced. Then, I guess you expect some big wows!

 

Interior designer Mary MacDonald create such wonderful color palettes for each room:

One More Shade of Blue

Blue is the world’s favorite color.   Yes,  there is a one more newest shade of blue and the name is YInMn, short for the chemicals it’s made from (Yttrium, Indium and Manganese, for you chemistry lovers).  It was discovered by Oregon State University scientists in 2009. The magic blue paint only reflects blue, is non-toxic and doesn’t fade.  Shepherd Color Company has licensed the patent and is already selling samples of YInMn blue.
