Color Trends 2022

Fresh New Year – Fresh Color Palette

color trends 2022

For over 20 years Pantone©, an industry leader in color forecasting, has determined a ‘Color of the Year’ based on design trends, socio-economic conditions and our global culture. This year, for the first time, a new color was created to reflect the challenging, changing times we are all going through. Drum roll, please…

very peri

Introducing Very Peri!

How do you describe Very Peri? It’s a dynamic blue with violet-red undertones. Pantone describes it as blending the faithfulness and constancy of blue with the energy and excitement of red.

While Pantone concentrates on an all-encompassing color trend, paint companies who determine ‘Colors of the Year’ use the same criteria geared towards home interiors. Playing on last years ‘calm me down and help me feel secure’ colors, it’s unanimous! Green is THE home décor color of 2022! Green is a calming color and represents regrowth. With that in mind, let’s look at colors the major paint companies say will be everywhere next year.

guacamole

Guacamole by Glidden

Just like our favorite appetizer, Guacamole is relaxing and refreshing. It brings an organic energy to any space.

olive sprig

Olive Sprig by PPG

This is a crisp, earthy color that mimics nature’s resiliency and can blend into any environment.

breezeway

Breezeway by Behr

Like a breath of fresh air, Breezeway is a cool, peaceful color tone that provides a feeling of renewal and healing.

evergreen fog

Evergreen Fog by Sherwin-Williams

Combine green and gray with a hint of blue and you get a versatile and calming hue. It’s simple and sophisticated.

october mist

October Mist by Benjamin Moore

October Mist is a muted shade of sage green that can carry a look without drawing too much attention to itself.

What will your room be wearing this year?

Very Peri could be an overall color if you are bold enough, but it will probably work best as an accent color. Muted greens can work as understated wall colors or accents.
