Pratt & Lambert® announced yesterday that it has unveiled Songbird (117C) as the 2020 Color of the Year. Crisp and clean, this vibrant mint shade speaks to the increasing desire to imbue natural colors with energy. Songbird is minimalistic but also optimistic, a youthful color that reminds us to find joy every day.

Songbird serves as the capstone of the color palette that makes up Pratt & Lambert’s 2020 Trend Forecast. Songbird and the 2020 trend colors are a blend of refreshing botanical hues and chalky pastels complemented by warm concrete and earth tones. Key colors are shades of mint, blush tones, greens and blues. These colors can be used individually or in combination to create inspired design throughout the home.

“Our customers are in constant pursuit of finding ways to make their lives and homes more flexible,” says Ashley Banbury, NCIDQ, Senior Color Designer for Pratt & Lambert Paints. “Home design no longer has one function, and our 2020 color of the year really speaks to this balance of creating a comforting, soothing space but with a jolt of energy.”

“Luxury and design are being looked at in a new light – with the influence of Hygge and pairing back movement – people are attracted to quality pieces without sacrificing comfort,” says Banbury. “Our 2020 trending colors are a perfect example of this balance – a blend of glamourous jewel hues grounded by neutral tones.”
