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.

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.

7 Paint Colors That Make You Look Good in Any Room

To choose right paint colors is to make us feel good in the room. Usually the paint colors that make us feel good often make us look good. Who wouldn’t want the paint colors that flatteren our skin tones?  Here are 7 designer-approved paint  colors that make us look good in  any room:

 

  1. Oval Room Blue 85 — Farrow & BallLgallery-1446054164-oval-room-blue.jpgOVERROOMBLUEImageHandler.ashx.jpg

Blue is one of those colors that just happens to flatter every skin tone, This particular shade has a little gray in it, which makes it even more soothing.

2. Pale Powder 204 — Farrow & Ball

Lgallery-1446054280-pale-powder.jpg

PALEPOWDER.jpg

“Like a true blonde — and those who want to be one — this pale blue-green is complex and enchanting. Throughout the day, it changes from robin’s-egg blue to gray-green, radiating a subtle glow that makes both people and furnishings look like the best versions of themselves. Pair it with moss-green velvet upholstery, modern art, and black-lacquer chinoiserie.” — SARAH BARTHOLOMEW

3.Deep Forest Pine 30GG 09/106 — Glidden

“I’m just back from Paris, and this green was everywhere — on people in the street, on the accessories and furniture in the antiques shops on the Rue Jacob, and even at the flea market. Imagine how great it would look in a dining room. It would really set off a face, as well as a painting. Do it in lacquer for a beautiful sheen.” — SUZANNE KASLER

4.Antiguan Sky 2040-60 — Benjamin Moore

“Aqua is a calming color, which balances a fiery red-head like myself and makes for a pretty room. Actually, most people look good in aqua, and when you look good, you feel more confident. I often like to use a range of one color, so I might add a darker teal or Prussian blue. Red or pink would punch it up and give it more pizzazz.” — LINDSEY CORAL HARPER

5. Dance of the Goddesses 23-1A — Valspar.

“You know how beautiful a pearl necklace looks against skin? Maybe that’s why this appeals to me. It’s the softest, most luminous pearl with just the slightest hint of pink. Paired with silver hardware, cream trim, and Thassos marble, it would make the most elegant dressing room. Add slate or navy to intensify the effect with some contrast and drama.” — JOAN CRAIG

Those warm almond/cream colors are classical, soft and timeless. Now, the trend comes to the interiors too. These almond colors truly never go out of style and they do the wonder in the room.

1. DIMITY, FARROW & BALL

It’s soft, elegant and warm, perfect applied on the trims and also rich enough to stand alone on the walls and ceilings.

“This paint color makes it into a lot of our residential projects. It is the perfect trim color when the walls are deep classic hues but it is also rich enough to stand alone on walls and ceilings themselves. I used Dimity in my bedroom when I moved into my Manhattan home six years ago and I’m still impressed by the softness and elegance years later.” — Anna Beeber

2.NATURAL WICKER, BENJAMIN MOORE

It’s all about color story of originality, ingenuity and creativity through fashion.  The Pantone Fashion Color Trend Report for London Autumn/Winter 2018 features a bold palette of autumnal hues complemented by some more surprising shades.

pantone-fall-18-trend-report-12-0740-limelight-1518199793.jpg
For a yellow with plenty of bite, the tart and sprightly Limelight hits the spot. “Animated and effervescent,” Pantone explains that this, “pungent yellow-green becomes the center of attention.”
pantone-fall-18-trend-report-16-1255-russetorange-1518199793.jpg
A beautiful orange, slightly more red than yellow, Russet Orange seems primed to take over as the new bold organic du jour — Pantone links it to nature and foliage, noting, “This forest floor orange speaks to earthen warmth.”

pantone-fall-18-trend-report-15-0850-celonyellow-1518199793.jpg
A rich silky hue that sits somewhere between the true yellow of gold and the greenish undertones of brass, Ceylon Yellow is described as a, “savory and spicy yellow [that] adds an exotic touch.”
pantone-fall-18-trend-report-15-3520-crocus-petal-1518199791.jpg
A delicate, energetic floral shade, Crocus Petal feels like the sweet, barely subdued understudy to Ultraviolet. Pantone calls it, “A cultivated and refined hue [that] adds a light and airy spring-like feeling.”

pantone-fall-18-trend-report-18-1549-valiant-poppy-1518199792.jpg
A rich jewel-tone straight off of the classic autumnal palette, Valiant Poppy is a, “brave and outgoing red shade effusive in its allure,” according to Pantone.
pantone-fall-18-trend-report-18-3838-ultraviolet-1518199793.jpg
This year’s Color of the Year pick, Ultraviolet is a vibrant, spiritual purple grounded by deep blue undertones. “Inventive and imaginative Ultra Violet lights the way for what is yet to come,” says Pantone.
pantone-fall-18-trend-report-18-4048-nebulas-blue-1518199791.jpg
Nebulas Blue is an electric, celestial shade, which Pantone describes as, “reminiscent of twilight,” and “a thoughtful, starry-eyed blue.”

 

Many of these unique shades easily stand on their own, however mixing and combining unexpected colors can help create a signature style or look. Adding an unexpected element allows for the artistry and originality that optimizes individuality…
