Your outside oasis is simply a day mission away: PPG’s OLYMPIC Stains selects Gentle Oak as the primary 2021 stain colour of the 12 months

PITTSBURGH – (BUSINESS WIRE) – As the world has been sheltering for more than a year, homeowners have established their own low-key lifestyle that includes gardening and gardening, organizing the often-forgotten attic, and do-it-yourself DIY prioritizing projects like never before. Homeowners have turned to a wide variety of DIY projects, designing homes that incorporate elements of the great outdoors.

To help homeowners incorporate the natural textures they want and, after more than a year indoors, to create a stronger connection with nature, OLYMPIC® Stains from PPG today announced its first stain color for 2021: Light Oak.

Light Oak is a soft, semi-transparent, versatile tan color that gives a refined Scandinavian-inspired look and at the same time brings out the natural properties of the wood. Light Oak can revitalize outdoor patios, patios and pergolas, blurring the lines between indoor and outdoor spaces. The stain color looks relaxed when combined with wrought-iron patio furniture and cream-colored accents such as plush cushions and seat cushions.

Light Oak is ideal for a variety of outdoor projects including fences, decks, siding, and more. The stain is available in the semitransparent products Olympic MAXIMUM®, Olympic ELITE® and Olympic Wood Protector from PPG.

“Our goal is to provide homeowners with the right products and guides to give them the confidence they need for their next stain project,” said Alison Bruce, senior marketing manager at PPG, Olympic Stains by PPG. “As a direct consequence of the pandemic, DIY projects have become increasingly important for homeowners as they are committed to nature and want to create a relaxing oasis in the open air. Light Oak is a timeless color that will keep wood looking beautiful for years to come. ”

Look at hanging flower baskets filled with bright flowers like cheerful yellow geraniums or classic red petunias. Alternatively, homeowners can also highlight these flowers in antique-looking terracotta flower pots and carefully place the pots outdoors. If there is soil on the deck or in the pergola, plant uncomplicated flowers like Kosmos that add a playful touch of pinkish-purple, tolerate poor soil conditions, and grow in the sun or shade – ideal flower qualities for any new gardener.

The versatility of Light Oak is noticeable when paired next to a house painted with a deep, rich green night clock (PPG1145-7) or even a whimsical off-white hue like Pegasus (PPG1010-1).

Light Oak and other colors are available from THE HOME DEPOT® and independent retailers in the United States. To find a dealer near you, please use the Olympic Stains by PPG store finder tool. For coloring tips and instructions, visit
