2019 PPG Paint Colour of the Year! – Nightwatch

Night Watch emulates the feeling of lush greenery and the healing power of nature.
It’s a rich, luxurious and classic shade of green, and its versatility allows the paint color to be used in a variety of rooms and design segments – from healthcare to commercial and residential design.


The Power of Nature

​The urge to reconnect with nature in today’s tumultuous society was a reoccurring theme during our annual Global Color Workshop, which brings together more than 20 PPG global color stylists from the automotive, consumer electronics, aerospace and residential paint industries.

“Night Watch is about bringing the healing power from the outdoors into your home through color,” explains Dee Schlotter, PPG senior color marketing manager. “The dark green hue pulls our memories of natural environments to the surface to recreate the calming, invigorating euphoria we feel when in nature.”


In an ever-disruptive world, we want to escape to a quieter place – one that’s protective and beautiful. Night Watch gives us that pathway.
