2022 Paint Colors of the Year

Each year paint companies and color experts reveal their picks for the paint shade that best reflect current lifestyle trends. Do any of these colors resonate with you? With snow arriving soon, now might be the perfect time to hunker down and create a cozy, inviting space that will keep you comforted through the winter.

DUNN EDWARDS Art & Craft: A warm, earthy shade that channels the richness of wood and offers a peaceful, grounding effect.

BEHR Breezeway: this soft, silvery blue-green is reminiscent of sea glass found along sandy beaches and the crystal-clear water of a tucked-away bay. Erika Woelfel, Behr’s vice president of color and creative services, calls Breezeway “a color that welcomes a hopeful sense of renewal, restoration, and healing.” 

SHERWIN WILLIAMS Evergreen Fog: A mid-tone gray-green, this color adds depth & interest to a space with its soothing hue straight from nature. 

BENJAMIN MOORE October Mist: Evocative of the stem of a flower, this gently shaded sage anchors and uplifts.
