January’s Color of the Month has been named the new, and appropriately-titled Dark & Stormy DET572.
It’s all about new beginnings, and emerging from the darkness to find comfort in the light.
“This color (so aptly named for this time of year) references the darkest of rain clouds in a mountain winter storm, not quite black, not quite purple or gray, but a mix of all those shades,” the brand shared on its website. “Yet, this dramatic color contrasts against light shades so well, just like fresh snow against a dark sky, creating a classic, crisp and fresh look, which is perfectly fitting for a new slate in a New Year.”
The color “lends itself to a masculine or feminine aesthetic and can be transformed based on the types of textiles and accents paired with it,” the brand added in an announcement.
Dunn-Edwards recommends its Dark & Stormy shade paired with different grays and any of its 10 new hide whites, which were unveiled at the end of 2019. The brand particularly recommends Be Cool (DEHW09) or Icy White (DEHW10) from this collection.
This deep blue hue also works perfectly with more of January 2020’s trending color announcements – like Pantone’s Color of the Year 2020, Classic Blue, and Sherwin-Williams’ yearly and monthly selection, Naval.
