WHERE DO COLOR TRENDS COME FROM?
That's the question our customers ask us. Our answer: everywhere. This year, we're giving you a behind-the-scenes look at exactly how we created the PPG The Voice of Colour® 2023 Paint Color Trends.
Think Global. Act Colorful.
When your paints' colors are sold in 86 countries, developing color trends is a global, cross-cultural effort. We bring together over 20 of our color experts from across the world and lock them in a room for three days.
The result? A color trend forecast that's unmatched in scope and expertise anywhere in the paint industry.
Think Outside The Can
The car you drive, the cell phone you use and the airplane you fly in may all feature PPG colors. We consider color styles from multiple industries, not just paint.
Our color trends aren't just limited to your home because the colors you love aren't just limited to your home.

No one shows up to the Global Color Meeting empty handed. On day one, each expert presents twelve months of preparation, mood boards, magazine cutouts and Pinterest boards. When we hear the ooohs and aaahs, we know the Global Color Meeting has begun.
