Last year, the Glidden paint brand by PPG didn’t select a 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 a Color of the Year and instead it’s going rogue. For the first time ever, and in order 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.
When Whirlwind and Aqua Fiesta are paired together, they will transform any room into the ultimate laid-back space, and the pairing does double-duty work. Aqua Fiesta is bright and fun, while Whirlwind is grounding.
“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.”
