Global coatings company PPG’s Dulux Paints recently not only released its 2020 Color of the Year pick, but has also released for the first time a Color of the Year for stain.

Described as a “think-deep, comforting, inky cobalt blue,” Chinese Porcelain combines the energy and brightness of a cobalt with a muted, dark navy tone that aims to emit a feeling of calm and hope, according to the company.

Described as a “think-deep, comforting, inky cobalt blue,” Chinese Porcelain combines the energy and brightness of a cobalt with a muted, dark navy tone that aims to emit a feeling of calm and hope, according to the company.

“Everyone today is looking for an escape from technology, a way to slow down and infuse simplicity into their lives in an uplifting environment. This is, in part, why we’re craving blues like Chinese Porcelain,” said Rob McDonald, Senior Brand Manager, Dulux Paints by PPG.

“Exuding depth, richness and drama, next year’s blue brings us closer to natural elements such as the sea and sky—creating lavish serenity in any space.”

McDonald goes on to say that earth tones in aesthetics will continue from last year, which will be complemented by Chinese Porcelain, along with metallic tones.

Along that vein, the stain Color of the Year is Teak, a warm, semi-transparent medium-brown stain that Dulux describes as a “1970s retro vibe.”

The company lists a few complementary shades for both Colors of the Year: Gracious Glow (DLX1116-5) yellow-olive green, Talavera (DLX1018-5) warm taupe, Brown Clay (DLX1199-6) soft terracotta and Gray Marble (DLX1002-4) stone gray.

“The combination of these nod-to-nature hues delivers an ambiance of state-of-the-art luxury in its simplest form, particularly when accessorized with warm metal accents and linear geometric patterns,” the company said.

Dulux also offered the following tips when decorating with Chinese Porcelain:

  • Paint an accent wall with the hue as a backdrop for other colors to pop;
  • Use the blue as a feature color in a bedroom with crisp white bedding and accents to provide a sharp contrast;
  • In a living room, layer Chinese Porcelain with additional blues in tufted and velvet furniture or pair with metallic finishes to create an elegant living space;
  • Complement the hue with decor in warm saffron and turmeric tones; and
  • In addition to warm teak wood, pair the blue with leather accents and dusty sand tones.
