2022 is just around the corner, and it's time to get a little dose of inspiration. Let's dive into 2022 interior color trends and find out will the upcoming year surprise us with unexpected color combinations and palettes. Color is one of the most important components of interior design, and choosing the right color can make all the difference in setting the desired mood for any space. For the past two years, most of us had to spend more time at home or even design our own home office. It feels that picking the right color for interior design becomes even more significant than before because the colors surrounding us can directly impact our emotions. And there is also a feeling that for 2022 we all are thirsty for shades that will bring freshness and rejuvenation, and many color experts and decorators agree that 2022 is the year for new beginnings. Will it be? Let's see!
Leading paint companies Sherwin-Williams, PPG, and Benjamin Moore agree that 2022 is the year for grey-green, and we couldn't be happier because we love shades of subtle green, sage & olive. And we already have some wallpaper patterns in mind that would go perfectly with the gray-green color palette!
1. Evergreen Fog
Sherwin-Williams 2022 Color of the Year is "Evergreen Fog". "Soothing, subtle, and a perfect shade to freshen up any space. Evergreen Fog SW 9130 is a versatile and calming hue, a chameleon color of gorgeous green-meets-gray, with just a bit of blue. It's a simple but sophisticated wash of beautiful, organic color for spaces that crave a subtle yet stunning statement shade." – www.sherwin-williams.com
2. Olive Sprig
"Elegant, grounded, versatile and highly-adaptable, the grey-green color represents regrowth, mimicking nature’s resiliency," is color "Olive Sprig" PPG's selection for 2022 Color of the Year. "Olive Sprig is a relaxed, but enticing green that emulates the feeling of soothing aloe vera or a fragrant plant – brightening any space with organic liveliness. A versatile color that lives well inside or outside, Olive Sprig blends in with nearly any environment." – www.ppgpaints.com
