Each year PPG’s Global Colour Team meet to discuss and develop future colour and design trends.
Our colour stylists from around the world each specialise in different markets and collaborate to determine styles and colour trends.
Take inspiration from the colour trend palettes in the following two trend collections and choose a scheme that works for you. Discover the 2018/19 collection and find out what will be trending in 2019/20.
Colour of the Year
The Dream Weaver
The 2018 colour of the year is Black Flame. Blending two classic hues, black and indigo, the statement-making colour adds a modern vibe to spaces with a lot of whites, blush pinks and soft pastels. The blend of two colours makes it incredibly versatile – use it on a statement wall, with a matt finish on a ceiling, with high gloss on a naturally-lit staircase, on cabinets, interior and exterior doors, and in many more places.
For The Brave interiors take on a look of dark glamour. Rich browns, greys and blacks mix with accent tones for a warm sophisticated look.
The colours featured are; Black Elegance, Black Lily and Swansong. Discover all the colours in this trend in Johnstone's Trade ColourBox

Colour of the Year 2019
The 2019 colour of the year is Night Watch. A darkened green that has the ability to almost act like a neutral and yet enough intensity to stand as a feature colour. It is versatile enough to work in traditional as well as contemporary applications and can be considered as an alternative to a solid black.
The elegance darks of the With Class palette take the primary focus on the interior of a home, with bedrooms, sitting areas and kitchens the core rooms for these hues. Rooms look far more sophisticated and grown-up when such colours are applied to cabinetry and paired with bronze or brass accents.
The colours featured are; Wave of Mystery, Night Watch and Magnolia Blossom. Find all the colours in this trend in Johnstone's Trade ColourBox
With It is a bright theme, full of energy, optimism and artisty. With expressiveness in mind, the more social areas of the home can feature punches of various colours - found on the walls as well as furniture and decorative items. This provides and very lively and conversational aspect to spaces. For more private areas, a single vibrant hue provides a sense of energy and optimism, while the remainder of the space is more neutral.
The colours featured are; Rose Heart, Pacific Pearl and Pine Thicket. Find all the colours in this trend in Johnstone's Trade ColourBox
The Without colour trend is both quiet and powerful, depending on the hues in focus. The wealth of soft whiles, gentles pastels and even mixed black each signify a calming mood. In contrast, strong reds, blues and greens are vibrant, impactful and powerful.
The colours featured are; Cocoa Delight, Candle Smoke and Black Lepoard. Find all the colours in this trend in Johnstone's Trade ColourBox
With Spirit is linked to the spiritual word. Featuring a healthy dose of purple, sunny golden yellows and scorched red/orange hues. Soft whites and tinted blacks add purity and mystery to the colour trend.
