Color Catalog: Chinese Porcelain

Love the CATS?

Finding a liveable true blue paint to show your team spirit can be a challenge. It can easily go too bright or too cold. PPG’s 2020 Color of the Year, Chinese Porcelain, strikes just the right balance of warmth and POW! This inky blue brings to mind luxurious cobalt pottery... as well as our favorite sports team!

Going Big Blue is a bold move, so it’s important to tread lightly with color throughout the rest of the room. Warm white and grey will not only help break up the color, but also bring some calm.

Be deliberate when using patterns in a space that’s dominated by a powerful hue like Chinese Porcelain. If you use the paint as an accent wall, patterns can help pick up the color through the rest of the room. Otherwise, use textures rather than patterns to bring visual interest to the space; a chunky knit or silky fabric can provide a more subtle impact.
