Get Inspired by the Colour of the Year 2022

According to Benjamin Moore and Sherwin Williams

Every year, design experts predict the colour trends that will dominate the upcoming year. These trends are influenced by the fashion, interior design, and overall mood of the moment. Experts travel far and wide, visiting trade shows and doing extensive research to come up with the perfect colour. Once it’s announced, the colour of the year dominates interior design trends, and is splashed on walls and cupboards, featuring in furniture and accessories.

With that amount of pressure, it is no easy feat to predict the next year’s trending palette. This year, the process to determine the next big colour trends had to adjust as designers worked virtually to find the next major trend. The director of colour marketing and development at Benjamin Moore described this process to AD as “more of an inward-looking process than other years.”

Despite all the challenges they faced, the experts at Benjamin Moore and Sherwin Williams have announced their respective colours of 2022 – landing in quite a similar place!

Benjamin Moore – October Mist

“Make room for creativity. Evoking the silver-green stem of a flower, October Mist creates a canvas for other colours – and your imagination – to blossom.”

Benjamin Moore’s selection for colour of the year is October Mist, a gentle shade of sage green. This colour does not overwhelm, but allows for a multitude of colour combinations. The experts felt it was important that the colour was versatile to work in different spaces and colour palettes. They took inspiration from the stems of flowers that serve as the base to many different colour combinations.

Sherwin Williams – 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.”

Nature and versatility inspired the experts at Sherwin Williams as well. They selected the shade Evergreen Fog as their colour of the year. This colour has many of the same characteristics as October Mist, prioritizing subtlety and working with several other colours. However, the tone of Evergreen Fog is slightly deeper and grey when compared to October Mist.
