Last year, the GLIDDEN paint brand by PPG didn’t select some “it” Color of the Year.
Instead, it unveiled Whirlwind (PPG1013-3), a no-fuss gray with a touch of blue that people will genuinely like staring at for years. Fast forward, and now we’re in 2020, a year that has caused many of us to feel unsettled and understandably anxious.
Glidden paint has again announced that it's not selecting some trendy-for-a-minute Color of the Year and instead it’s going rogue.
Glidden paint is going aqua. For the first time, and to help do-it-yourselfers (DIYers) and "procrastipainters" – folks who procrastinate on their painting projects – Glidden paint has selected Aqua Fiesta (PPG1147-4) as the Accent Color of the Year for 2021.
Aqua Fiesta is a cheerful and fresh aquamarine color that looks great in a bedroom, bath, living room or kitchen.
“No one could have predicted how upsetting 2020 would have turned out to be,” said Amy Donato, Glidden paint’s color whisperer. “Last year, we already knew that Whirlwind would be a staple color for 2020 and beyond, and the anxiety of this year has only made people crave this no-frills gray even more. We have gone one step further to help you stop procrastipainting by unveiling Aqua Fiesta as the go-to accent color. Now, it’s time to put down that homemade banana bread and pick up a paint brush.”
To create that spa-ish home vibe you’ve seen popping up all over social media, use Whirlwind on the walls of your bedroom, living room or kitchen and pair it with a fresh Aqua Fiesta accent wall. If you use Aqua Fiesta in your bedroom, add in cream-colored bedding and white, fluffy pillows to complete the look. Glidden paint’s Whirlwind and Aqua Fiesta will be the envy of your friends and family – once they all can safely visit that is.
