If you’ve been watching color trends over the last couple of years, you’ve probably noticed a resurgence of jewel tones, particularly deep greens. So when PPG Paints the 2019 Color of the Year, Night Watch, they were right on point with their choice.
Night Watch is a rich, luxurious shade of green that evokes tranquility and peace.
Deep green makes us feel as if we’re spending time outside; as if we’ve gotten out from behind our screens and taken a walk in the woods.
Using it in a dining room creates a space that naturally draws people in.
In a bedroom, deep green creates a space that’s ripe for dreaming and perfect for afternoon naps.
It can be rich and traditional, creating a sense of timelessness.
Or it can be modern, giving a pop of color to otherwise minimalist spaces.
Despite its dark tones, it leaves you feeling uplifted.
Use it in any room in the house, particularly near a kitchen island, where people love to congregate.
It makes an office feel like a hushed library — even the most charming and tiny office niche.
Use it anywhere you want the restorative power of nature. If you’re looking for a color that’s both perfectly timeless and perfectly on trend, try a dark, hunter green like Night Watch.
