The predictions are in, and leading paint and color experts consistently and resoundingly agree that the color of the year for 2022 is going to be a sophisticated shade of earthy gray-green! The hue symbolizes balance and harmony often seen in the natural world and signals a sense of optimism and hope for the future. Many designers agree that 2022 will be the year for new beginnings, and shades throughout the home that embody a sense of rejuvenation and incorporate elements of wellbeing will become increasingly popular this upcoming year.
According to the experts, a paint palette infused with calming neutrals and hues of gray-green, sage green, or deeper rich emeralds make us feel healthy, serene and centered. These hues are subtle enough to be used throughout the home or as a pop of color on kitchen cabinetry or a playful painted table in an entryway. These earthy and calming shades painted on accent walls are touted to pair well with more 2022 decorating trends like touchable textures, organic shapes, and wooden accessories.
Also predicted to make a bold impact as the accent shades of 2022 are earthy tones that evoke the natural world, warm neutrals that usher in calmness, dusty yellows of a sunrise, sultry shades of purple, and sprinkles of bold primary colors.
Painting walls in your home can feel overwhelming, or it may be prohibited where you live. Fortunately, painted furniture will remain a favorable trend in the years to come, and adding a touch of color to a piece of accent furniture would not only be easier, but it carries less risk if the color doesn’t turn out to be what you envisioned. The bold accent color trends for 2022 offer fun options for pops of color. Painted kitchen chairs can be a quick upgrade to an otherwise bland area, or next year might be the year you decide to give that old buffet that’s been moved one too many times the makeover it desperately needs!
Colors resonate in different ways for different people; some will gravitate toward the calming neutrals to counter the turbulence of the past two years, while others will choose to immerse themselves in cheerful, vivid colors, reaching for optimism through bright accent colors. Whichever colors you choose and whatever you decide to paint in the new year, make sure to buy a quality paint brand and do your research to get the appropriate brushes for the job!
