2020 Memorial Day Official Colors + Design Ideas

2020 Memorial Day Official Colors + Design Ideas

Memorial Day is more than a long weekend and a holiday. It’s a chance to honor America’s military veterans and heroes who laid down their lives for the security and stability of the United States.

There are many ways to remember America’s finest and show honor and respect on Memorial Day. As any great designer will tell you, color can represent thoughts, feelings and emotions beautifully.

With so many reasons to stop and reflect in 2020, this may be the perfect year to really take our time and properly honor our heroes and our history.

The official ribbon color of Memorial Day is yellow. But why? The earliest roots of the tradition tie to the poem “She wore a yellow ribbon”, which has been in existence for roughly 4 centuries. In it, a woman wears a yellow ribbon while waiting for a man she loves to return from a great test or trial. The tradition carried on through Protestant England, where the Puritan Army wore yellow ribbons and sashes during the English Civil War.

Yellow became the official color of the armor branch of the U.S. Army, and was first brought into popular culture by the artist Frederic Remington.

The poem “She wore a yellow ribbon” was updated into song and first published in 1917 as a military marching song by George Norton. However, the yellow ribbon’s popularity and tie to the U.S. military became entrenched during World War II, when the song was re-written and released in the 1949 film “She Wore a Yellow Ribbon”. Versions of the song were released by the Andrews Sisters, Mitch Miller and others.

Modern Americans are much more familiar with the song “Tie a Yellow Ribbon ‘Round the Old Oak Tree”, although it will surprise many to know it was not written until the 1970s.

What other Memorial Day colors are appropriate besides yellow?

Variations of red, white and blue are always welcome on Memorial Day. We also love the idea of using military shades of green to signify respect and remembrance of American soldiers and military members.

We’ve included six official Pantone colors that we think are great options for Memorial Day.

Pantone During A Pandemic | Bright, Brassy Orange

Pantone During A Pandemic | Bright, Brassy Orange

It’s hard to feel that ‘creative spark’ during “shelter in place” sometimes. For artists and designers, social distancing often means feeling a disconnect from the collaborators and teammates with whom we love to work. It’s important that we find new ways to ignite our inspiration, and new approaches to the creative process.

Color has always been a motivating factor and constant source of energy in our creative process. Thanks to Pantone, color now has ‘a language’ – a worldwide color matching system that allows you to seamlessly transition between graphic, textile, online and home design. Need that exact shade of blue to translate from your screen to your kitchen design? Pantone has you covered.

We love turning to Pantone (especially during this pandemic) to keep us connected to creative energy, trending colors and artistic design inspiration.

In the “Pantone During A Pandemic” series, we will highlight some of Pantone’s color trend report selections and group them into categories. From optimistic to calming, bold to reliable, we hope these Pantone color collections will help you reconnect with your muse and “flex that creative muscle”!

Pantone Color Trends | Orange Colors for 2020

Perhaps the most surprising “breakout” design color for 2020 is orange. Bright, brassy and bold, the orange Pantone color palette is expanding rapidly. With one of the largest sets of “new additions” to its color gallery, it’s clear that designers in every facet of the term are picking up this audacious, sunny shade.

Will you design with orange? Do you want orange in your kitchen or bath design? Here are five trendy orange options from Pantone’s New York and London 2020 collections, as well as one completely new Pantone color for 2020.

Orange Peel

Pantone 16-1359

Collection: Pantone New York Spring 2020

Pantone 2020 Orange Peel

It doesn’t get more “essentially orange” than Orange Peel. Juicy, bright and fun, Orange Peel provides a real punch to any design palette. If you’re looking for a shade that’s 100% orange with no subtlety or undertones, you can’t do much better than Orange Peel.

Amberglow

Pantone 16-1350

Collection: Pantone New York Autumn 2020

Pantone 2020 Amberglow

A complex shade of orange, Amberglow leaves us questioning exactly where its roots lie. Is it more brown? Red? Rich and earthy, Amberglow strikes us as more of a ‘fall color’ and feels more like harvest, pumpkins and gourds than bright spring flowers.

Flame Orange

Pantone 15-1157

Collection: Pantone London Spring 2020

Pantone 2020 Flame Orange

A glowing, fiery tone, Flame Orange is a bursting ball of energy just waiting to stand out in your 2020 designs. Perhaps the exact opposite of ‘shrinking violet’, Flame Orange is ready to stand at the forefront and command attention.

Exuberance

Pantone 17-1349

Collection: Pantone London Autumn 2020

Pantone 2020 Exuberance

Exuberance – what a great name for this full-bodied orange color! A “deeper” orange with reddish-brown undertones, Exuberance isn’t too bright to be overbearing or too dark to be drab.

Daylily

Pantone 15-0956

Collection: Pantone New Colors 2020

Pantone 2020 Daylily

A brand new color to the Pantone color system, Daylily sits delightfully between orange and yellow. Fresh and vibrant, Daylily looks like a tall glass of orange juice or the inside of a bright yellow flower. It’s a great choice as a statement color in your new kitchen!

Pantone During A Pandemic | A Natural Palette

Pantone During A Pandemic | A Natural Palette

It’s hard to feel that ‘creative spark’ during “shelter in place” sometimes. For artists and designers, social distancing often means feeling a disconnect from the collaborators and teammates with whom we love to work. It’s important that we find new ways to ignite our inspiration, and new approaches to the creative process.

Pantone Color Trends | A Natural Palette for 2020

We can’t all get out and enjoy nature during this pandemic, so the next best thing for many of us is to design with nature in mind. Natural tones and earth tones help reconnect with the world around us, and provide solace and the warmth of familiarity during difficult times. From soft floral colors to dark leafy greens, the browns of stone and bark to the colors of the sky, here are 5 of our favorite colors from Pantone’s 2020 color trend reports collected into one natural palette.

Sunlight

Pantone 13-0822

Collection: Pantone New York Spring 2020

Pantone 2020 color kitchen design Sunlight

Warm and inviting, Sunlight provides a versatile design color to begin our natural palette for 2020. Will you use it as a cheery, friendly yellow, or a brighter-than-usual neutral? Either way, the Pantone color Sunlight provides an instant sensation of relaxation and comfort.

Chive

Pantone 19-0323

Collection: Pantone New York Spring 2020

PANTONE 2020 kitchen design color Chive

In nature, chives are dense in nutrients that promote bone heath and good sleep. In this Pantone color palette, Chive is packed with natural lush green. Described by Pantone’s Laurie Pressman as having “savory” and “restorative” qualities, Chive is a winning design color.

Sandstone

Pantone 16-1328

Collection: Pantone New York Autumn 2020

Pantone 2020 color kitchen design Sandstone

Sandstone rests at the core of this natural color palette, providing sturdy earth-toned balance. Whether it rests in wood tones, colored stone, or rustic design elements, Sandstone is a “backbone” shade that remains warm enough to not be dull.

Blossom

Pantone 14-1513

Collection: Pantone London Spring 2020

Pantone 2020 color kitchen design Blossom

As in nature, a floral color doesn’t need to be overbearing to stand out. Blossom is a soft pink Pantone shade that provides just enough “pop” to pull this collection into focus. Fresh and fragrant, Blossom brings an understated charm and youthful energy to this design palette.

Jet Stream

Pantone 11-0605

Collection: Pantone London Autumn 2020 (Classics)

Pantone 2020 color kitchen design Jet Stream

“[A]n off-white suggestive of our affinity for raw and recycled” is how Pantone’s Laurie Pressman describes Jet Stream. An off-white that reminds us of recycled paper, Jet Stream is a casual neutral that can be used in place of pure white to bring some intrigue to the “in-between spaces” of your color design.
