Dunn- Edwards 2020 Color of the Year - Minty Fresh (DE5687)

A bright and fresh inspiring color was announced by Dunn-Edwards® 2020 Color of the Year, Minty Fresh, captures the enthusiasm and optimism of a new decade. As we stand at the portal of a new era, infinite potential lies ahead. It’s invigorating, exciting — Minty Fresh!


Nature as Inspiration

Minty Fresh — an invigorating, sweet, cool and aromatic hue — defines 2020, as a range of grounded, garden-inspired shades heralds the opportunity for a fresh start. With this mint-infused pastel hue, we are upbeat as we take an optimistic approach to creating and controlling elements that are within our power. And, as with many shades of green, nature is omnipresent, creating tranquility and balance between stillness and progress.

A client we have been working with loves this bright and inspiring color inspired by nature. You can also see this big trend with the bali inspired interiors that have been on trend this past year.


Grounded grassy hues touch off a time of renewal. Discovering verdant influences from a range of design industries, the complex neutrals and foliage-rich hues continue to have a strong preference among consumers. Variations of this shade have been trending during the past years — from lighter cactus and mints, to darker teal blue-green, many times paired with Millennial pink to deep rose and bright fuchsia. A look back at the Dunn-Edwards 2018 Color of the Year, The Green Hour (DET544), highlights the strong and continued influence of this shade in both color and design trends.
