Contemporary and Classic
This palette is a contemporary take on classic masculine and feminine ideas, blending curvaceous forms with sturdy materials. Tuning into the modern-day “Mad Men,” this theme relies heavily on texture, surface design and material to convey craftsmanship and emphasizes the importance of integrity in design. Mixed metallics, porous woods and textured fabrics offer a rugged yet refined timelessness. Past and modern-day styling work together to create a look that is luxurious and elegant while remaining reserved and inviting.
The mood of this palette is conveyed by pairing rich, sumptuous reddish-browns with rich blues and pale blues and grays. PPG Pittsburgh Paints paint in this palette include Copper Beach (327-6), Warm Mahogany (430-7), Blue Fjord (448-6), Blue Beard (546-4) and Gray Marble (530-4).
Modern Is Tech
Streamlined and Calculated
Pared-down and fashionable, this trend embraces the modernist spirit with the stark but friendly appeal of futuristic technology. Born of a philosophy that suggests the traditional aspects of everyday life are quickly becoming outdated, this theme seeks a new outlook and vision for living. Strong, mathematical lines with the occasional touch of fluidity are met by clean, compact fabrics. Chic precision resonates throughout the theme.
The color palette includes blocks of black and white against lively primary hues, offering concrete gray shades as a midway point between the two. PPG Pittsburgh Paints paint in this palette are Newport Blue (150-6), Atrium White (523-1), Sun Shower (114-5), Silver Sword (507-3) and Red Gumball (233-7).
