According to Sico color experts, black paint highlights a perfect mix of modern yet timeless sophistication and offers a flexibility in design that is often overlooked.
“Cast Iron is a perfect choice for do-it-yourselfers (DIY-ers) who crave a grounded room that is enveloped in comfort and coziness, beginning with their paint color selection,” said Mylène Gévry, senior marketing manager, Sico paint brand by PPG. “This color is hard to ignore and provides a certain grandeur or simplicity to a space because of its flexibility.”
While black commands attention on its own, Sico color experts recommend pairing it with a variety of other tones. Layer this deep, rich midnight hue with a variety of trending softer neutrals, such as “millennial pink” Vanilla Orchid (6188-21), a nutmeg-tone like Roma Antiqua (6231-63), a brown-grey like Flawless Grey (6212-31) and a warm white like Zen (6222-11) for a tranquil and minimal look.
To make a dramatic statement, pair Cast Iron with a dark burgundy like Venetian Wine (6082-85), a mid-tone grey like Industrial Grey (6212-52), a soft beige like Gobi Dunes (6194-42) and an off-white like Ground Coriander (6218-21). Combined with brass or gold accents, this colour palette will give the appearance of elegance and luxury.
The color was unanimously selected by PPG’s more than 20 global color stylists, who specialize in industries that include consumer electronics, architectural, automotive and aerospace. These experts study consumer insights, building material trends, décor trends and more to select a colour forecast that resonates and is reflective of current consumer attitudes.
