Silverado Named PITTSBURGH PAINTS & STAINS 2017 Color of the Year

PITTSBURGH–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The PITTSBURGH PAINTS & STAINS® brand of PPG (NYSE: PPG)
today unveiled its 2017 Color of the Year, Silverado (MEN7049-5), a
deep, mystic purple that pairs perfectly with trending gray tones.

“PPG’s global color experts selected a striking purple hue for the Pittsburgh
Paints & Stains
brand 2017 Color of the Year after studying
consumers’ growing fascination with space, spirituality, technology and
time. Silverado perfectly mimics the deep, mysterious yet organic tones
of outer space,” said Misty Yeomans, PPG color marketing manager, Pittsburgh
Paints & Stains
brand.

Subtle neutral-gray tones within Silverado add modern grace and
livability, Yeomans noted. Because of this, the muted purple can be used
in many spaces – children’s rooms, dining rooms or even front doors.
When paired with neutral finishes and tones inspired by Mother Nature,
the color promotes wellness and takes on a holistic feel, a sign of its
versatility.

Consumers can beautifully incorporate Silverado into the home by pairing
it with any of the nine other colors in the Pittsburgh Paints & Stains
brand 2017 color trends palette: deep blacks, such as Black Magic
(MEN7065-6), clean whites such as Silver Screen (MEN7090-2) or String of
Pearls (MEN7114-1), or classic gray tones, such as Antique Silver
(MEN7070-4) or for a more modern look. Or, Silverado can take on a rich,
earthy feel when paired with wood finishes and warm taupe, such as green
Photo Gray (MEN7165-4), a salmon tone such as Copper Trail (MEN7088-5),
a turquoise like Bermuda (MEN7012-5), deeper purples like Carob Chip
(MEN7064-6), or soft cream like Almond Cream (MEN7118-3).

“With hints of gray, Silverado fits perfectly in many different
environments due to its versatility and neutral nature,” Yeomans
continued.
