‘Garden Patch’ Picked as 2019 Color of the Year by Dutch Boy
Reflecting growing optimism in the U.S., Dutch Boy Paints has released its 2019 Color of the Year, Garden Patch 326-5DB, and three eight-color design palettes — Homestead, Studio and Sanctuary — that embody a happier, more empathetic country seeking greater peace and understanding while celebrating diversity at the same time.
“All of our colors for 2019 have a happier tone and reflect an upswing in how people are feeling. Even colors that are traditionally on the cooler side of the palette have a level of warmth and happiness than what we’ve seen in the recent past,” said Rachel Skafidas, color and design manager, Dutch Boy Paints. “Even though people may see challenges in their lives, they’re thinking positively and expressing more empathy.”
Garden Patch, a green that is not too deep and not too primary, is a nostalgic, botanical hue that stands out for its warm and calming effect. Paired with soft naturals and pops of warm colors, Garden Patch offers rejuvenation and peace at the end of the day in every room of the home.
“Garden Patch is a great color that can be used in all areas of the home,” she said, noting its use as an exterior accent color in the Dutch Boy Color of the Year brochure. “When the Dutch Boy color team selects a color, we want it to be something the homeowner can use to transform just about any space.”
Green is prominently featured in all three Dutch Boy design trends.
