According to Sico colour experts, black paint highlights a
perfect mix of modern yet timeless sophistication and offers a
flexibility in design that is often overlooked. Similar to your
favourite black handbag, Cast Iron pairs beautifully with almost any
design style.

“Cast Iron is a perfect choice for do-it-yourselfers (DIY-ers) who crave
a grounded room that is enveloped in comfort and coziness, beginning
with their paint colour selection,” said Mylène Gévry, senior marketing
manager, Sico paint brand by PPG. “This colour is hard to ignore

While black commands attention on its own, Sico colour experts
recommend pairing it with a variety of other tones. Layer this deep,
rich midnight hue with a variety of trending softer neutrals, such as
“millennial pink” Vanilla Orchid (6188-21), a nutmeg-tone like Roma
Antiqua (6231-63), a brown-grey like Flawless Grey (6212-31) and a warm
white like Zen (6222-11) for a tranquil and minimal look.

To make a dramatic statement, pair Cast Iron with a dark burgundy like
Venetian Wine (6082-85), a mid-tone grey like Industrial Grey (6212-52),
a soft beige like Gobi Dunes (6194-42) and an off-white like Ground
Coriander (6218-21). Combined with brass or gold accents, this colour
palette will give the appearance of elegance and luxury.

The colour was unanimously selected by PPG’s more than 20 global colour
stylists, who specialize in industries that include consumer
electronics, architectural, automotive and aerospace. These experts
study consumer insights, building material trends, décor trends and more
to select a colour forecast that resonates and is reflective of current
consumer attitudes.

Sico paint’s Cast Iron colour perfectly complements the various
trending black building materials and home accessories that we’re seeing
in the marketplace. From timeless black windows to matte black kitchen
appliances, this hue will fit in perfectly with modern or traditional
design elements,” Gévry noted.

“Black is often overlooked and underappreciated when choosing paint
colours for the home, but its ability to refine, subdue and add strength
to a space makes it a perfect choice,” said Misty Yeomans, colour
marketing manager, Sico paint. “It brings solace and a
peacefulness to any space, creating a haven in which to retreat from our
always-connected, high-pressure society. Its versatility in pairing with
other colours adds to its allure in home decorating.”
