Our hustle and bustle world could use some cool and calming colors. That’s exactly what inspired PPG’s 2020 Color of the Year Chinese Porcelain. PPG describes the shade as, “a blend of cobalt and moody, ink blue that imparts calmness and restful sleep while also offering the spirit of hopefulness – a commodity in a restless world.” Chinese Porcelain (PPG1160-6) is a beautiful deep blue shade with a slight hint of teal. It’s a bold pop of color that certainly invites calming comfort.
We love this new shade because it’s so versatile. You can make Chinese Porcelain the center of attention in a blue color scheme or add a deep contrast to white, grey, and light oak with the rich blue shade. No matter what year or season it is, blue always has a place in interior design.
3 Quick Ways to Incorporate Chinese Porcelain
If you’re like us, you always want to keep up with the latest trends in your living room, dining room, bedroom, etc. Here are three quick and easy ideas you can add Chinese Porcelain to your interior design:
- Start with accessories. Add a few statement candlesticks, a rug, and some wall art to your living room to make the moody blue shade pop. You can also change the bedding and drapes in your bedroom to give the room a blue moment. Just a few blue swaps or additions can give your room the transformation you’re looking for.
- Paint an accent wall! Chinese Porcelain is a gorgeous shade to add to your main living room wall or cover a smaller space for a “wow” moment. Truthfully, this color will work for any room in your home.
- Upgrade your furniture to a set that incorporates deep blue shades. We love to recommend the Mason Charcoal Sectional Collection or the Grandstand Flannel Sectional Collection for blue color schemes. You can use the accent pillows in either set to introduce a cool blue shade into your living room.
