PPG has announced the Glidden paint 2023 Color of the Year as Vining Ivy (PPG1148-6). According to the Glidden color experts, this “bluish-greenish-something-in-betweenish” tone serves up versatile vibes, making it an on-trend addition to contemporary designs or a refined pop of color for those with more traditional taste. The company’s color experts have also aligned on Vining Ivy as the “it” color for the PPG paint brands in 2023.
“Consumers are seeking to simplify in this post-COVID era, as the past two years have shed a new light on the importance of serenity and little moments,” said Ashley McCollum, Glidden color expert. “Vining Ivy embodies this vibe perfectly. It is energizing yet grounding, and it works in literally any space. Its versatility takes the guesswork out of design, leaving consumers with more time to indulge in the things that matter most to them.”
A Beautiful, Botanical Color for Contemporary Tastes
The team notes that the teal is as adaptable as its botanical namesake, intertwining blue and green to create a color that is equally as symbolic of deep water. Vining Ivy’s jewel-toned hue can be used to set a calming mood in spaces, as its blue communicates feelings of tranquility while the emerald evokes feelings of balance. The result is a rich, timeless color ready to embrace us as we emerge from the pandemic and resume living our best lives.
As a nod to Vining Ivy’s adaptability, Glidden color stylists see it showing up across exterior and interior commercial and residential spaces, styles and textures. Glidden color experts recommend using this blue-green shade as a wall color paired with deeper-toned woods and off-white trim. As an exterior, this hue can punctuate a home’s personality, adding immediate curb appeal when featured as a front door color – the perfect complement to colorful landscaping.
“Those who love this trendy hue but are still feeling in-betweenish on how to bring it into their space can treat themselves to the understated elegance of a teal accent wall or serve up a statement by featuring Vining Ivy on their kitchen cabinetry,” McCollum said. “Even the most modest spaces can benefit from the teal treatment. For those short on square footage but big on style, we recommend using this rich hue as a bold contrast to a neutral palette, making a petite room feel plush.”
