This Color Is Going to Be Huge in 2019

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.

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.
