TORONTO, Sep. 12, 2023 – PPG (NYSE:PPG) today announced SICO™ paint by PPG's 2024 Colour of the Year – Satin (6112-31). This modern, yellow hue balances the power of a primary colour with the subtlety of a neutral, making it the perfect representation of consumers’ optimism for a future highlighted by transformative creativity and change after years clouded with uncertainty and instability.

“As a society, we’re carrying the lessons of introspection and the importance of calm into the future. Coupled with a renewed sense of excitement for the endless possibilities of the future, consumers’ preferences are shifting away from stark, cool shades and looking to colours that invigorate a space,” said Martin Fuchs, PPG senior marketing manager, Sico paint brand. “Satin is the perfect representation of these sentiments with its cheerful yellow base grounded in a calming beige undertone.”

Satin is a warm, honey-beige tone that is strong enough to stand alone as the leading colour in almost any design palette, yet soft enough to work as a supporting hue to both warm and cool-toned shades. Its versatility makes it a great option as an all-over wall colour, bringing the feeling of a warm welcome to any space; or as an accent colour, where it shines as a spirited focal point of a room.

Designing with this dynamic tone can be as easy as using it to accent existing decor or considering an unconventional surface for application. Sico paint experts recommend these tips for introducing this colour into the home:

  • Paint Satin on all four walls of a room to create a calm and welcoming space or consider using it as the ultimate accent colour on the ceiling or focal point of a room.
  • Incorporate Satin into the kitchen as a statement-making cabinetry colour that pairs perfectly with warm- and cool-toned countertops.
  • Pair Satin with chestnut brown accents to set the stage for an ultra-cozy environment, or keep things bright by pairing it with white accents or wood trim.
  • Satin can bring an energizing lift to a home’s exterior when used as an all-over colour. This friendly yellow makes front doors pop as an accent colour to cooler-toned exterior palettes.

As the headlining colour of Sico paint brand’s 2024 palette, Satin pairs well with multiple hues from the lineup, including an earthy rust Cubist Red (6037-85), refreshing aquamarine Natural Spring Water (6201-31), soothing deep teal Kennetcook Slate (6157-63) and comforting, warm khaki, Mantra (6222-42).
