‘Night Watch’ a rich classic green, has been announced as Colour of the year for 2019 by Johnstone’s.
Every year, a Global Colour Team from PPG meets to discuss and develop future colour and design trends. These colour stylists represent different markets from across the world, and from their collective knowledge of global trends, a Colour of the Year is selected.
Donna Taylor, Principle Colour Consultant for Voice of Colour and Johnstone’s Trade said: “The appeal of Night Watch is how the shade invokes our deep connection to nature, as well as being such a classic, timeless green. The hue is a really versatile shade, suitable for a variety of spaces – both interior and exterior.
“The colour could be incorporated into interior design as a feature wall in a bedroom or dining room; it also pairs well with gold or brass accents. It can be especially impactful in places without any outdoor views, such as the end of a hallway with no windows. For exteriors, Night Watch is a gorgeous alternative to the trending black or deep blue, and it works well on doors and shutters too.”
Introducing the 2019 colour trends
While Night Watch is the colour selected to spearhead the 2019 trends guide, it is just one of 2000 colours in the Voice of Colour palette. The palette provides direction and design inspiration for decorators and their customers alike. The colours are brought to life through four individual design stories that make up the 2019 trends guide:
Part of a suite of tools which help painters and decorators, and their customers, make informed colour decisions, the Johnstone’s Trade colour card incorporating the Voice of Colour 2019 themes will be available in the New Year.
