"Subdued, yet energetic, Minty Fresh is not only our Color of the Month but also our 2020 Color of the Year," said Sara McLean, the company's color expert & stylist. "While cool and grounding, this light, mint green echoes the optimism that comes with a new decade. Couple this hue with Milk Glass and Muslin to bring a cheerful and refreshing feeling to any space."
More from McLean: "As a key color of the Dunn-Edwards 2020 color trends story, 'Fresh and Free,' Minty Free exudes a calm, clean and crisp high point to the color palette – water-soft and mentholated, revived in oxygenating nuances, a reflection of purity. A subtle and relaxing pastel that conveys the partnership between technology and nature.
"Minty Fresh – an invigorating, sweet, cool and aromatic hue – defines 2020, as a range of grounded, garden-inspired shades heralds the opportunity for a fresh start. With this mint-infused pastel hue, we are upbeat as we take an optimistic approach to create and control elements that are within our power. And, as with many shades of green, nature is omnipresent, creating tranquility and balance between stillness and progress."
