PPG’s Toronto-based Dulux Paints line is taking note from the Emerald Isle with its Colors of the Year for 2019.

The picks, released late last week, include two shades of green that the company says gives homeowners a “contemporary version of old-school elegance and sophistication.”

The Picks

Dulux has selected Night Watch, a deep green-black from the brand’s new color collection, and Mojito Shimmer, a frosted green from the Effects Finishes Venetian Silk collection. (Similarly, the PPG Paints brand also chose a Night Watch from its line as the 2019 pick.)


PPG’s Toronto-based Dulux Paints line is taking note from the Emerald Isle with its Colors of the Year for 2019.

“Both of these colors represent the ultimate in luxe, delivering a rich, striking look that brings sophistication and depth to living spaces,” said Martin Tustin-Fuchs, PPG brand manager, Dulux Paints by PPG.

“An evolution from last year’s popular tinted black, these glamourous dark greens are symbolic of consumers’ desire for positive change—to move from darkness to twilight and to search for an element of rebirth in today’s complex, technologically-driven world.”

Night Watch, the company says, can be used as a neutral, though it also has the intensity to be employed as an accent color. It couples well with soft grays or beiges. The hue works best in bedrooms or living areas, the company notes, and pairs well with metallic finishes and pewter tones.

Tustin-Fuchs notes that the Venetian Silk line is made with a technology that allows for a light-reflecting color and texture, adding depth to the surface.

Mojito Shimmer is recommended for an accent wall and can be complemented with off-whites and other neutrals.

Dulux also released a 15-swatch color palette for 2019 in addition to the two color picks.

With majority warm tones such as Cinnamon Diamonds, Chilled Wine, Bold Brandy and Apple-A-Day, the company notes that the group is “Composed of rich, deep hues alongside lighter warm and cool neutrals, this year’s color collection is a modern version of old-school elegance and refinement.”
