PPG color of the year is Chinese Porcelain

We’re about six months out from the New Year, and already we have PPG’s 2020 Color of the Year: Chinese Porcelain (PPG1160-6). 

In a conversation with PPG’s senior color manager, Dee Schlotter, she explains the color is meant to serve as a counter to the anxiety our hyper-paced, tech-heavy world can encourage. 

“PPG Chinese Porcelain is a deep, shaded, orchid blue that imparts slowness, encouraging consumers to practice mindfulness and be more present in their lives,” she says. “This versatile hue also delivers the energy of cobalt and Klein blue—two trending, high-intensity hues taking the automotive, consumer electronics, and fashion industries by storm—while incorporating the sophistication of a deep, muted navy, popular in both residential and hospitality, commercial, and health care design.”
