2015 Color of the Year and Trends from PPG The Voice of Color®
At PPG, we view color as an ecosystem – one that revolves around our customers. It’s fluid. It’s collaborative. It’s all-encompassing.
PPG employs more than 20 color stylists around the world, each specializing in different markets, who collaborate to determine styles and color trends for the home, electronics and automobiles.
PPG’s unique position as a color leader in multiple markets enables it to observe and translate emerging global color trends for its customers’ applications – from consumer goods to automotive color, from residential to commercial to industrial design.
At our annual color forecasting meeting this past January, the message was clear that a vibrant, clean blue would be the dominant color in 2015. Experts from PPG The Voice of Color anticipate Blue Paisley to play a prominent role in the home décor trends for the coming year as homeowners look to positively influence their lives and decisions with vibrant colors. Like the horizon, it represents possibility. It’s charismatic and will be noticed wherever you put it.
This yearning blue has global ties and is reminiscent of mosaic stones. It has a bohemian flare and can be paired with a charming, rich yellow-gold, or used as an accent wall, pulling in some mystery with black, gray and white.

Blue Paisley is one of the featured colors presented in Possibility, a collection of four new color palettes showcasing the 2015-2016 color trends for the PPG The Voice of Color program. While Possibility is an endless term, our color stylists from around the world collaborated to form the overarching idea behind the four new palettes – setting the tone for the entire year ahead.
