You might have noticed a steady stream in paint colour trends in 2020 and 2021. Like we talked about in our article Design trend 2021: curves, shapes and squiggles, the past 2 years had their fair share of ups and downs, with a lot of us stuck at home, probably stuck staring at the same home decor.
This created a shift in the way we see our home decor, leaving behind the clean and minimalistic designs for more lived-in, cozy and feel-good decors. From organic shapes and earthy paint colours to bold, bright hues paired with statement pieces, here is what the coming year has in store for us.
For the brand, the coming year seems filled with nostalgic, warm and bright colours. With 4 unique palettes consisting of 40 hues, Sherwin-Williams came up with the acronym MODE, representing each of these palettes (Method, Opus, Dreamland and Ephemera).
While Method and Dreamland are consisted of soft, earthy and muted colours, Opus and Ephemera give us bold, darker and brighter colours, giving us that retro nostalgia people have been craving lately!

Through all these shades, one stands out and its name is Evergreen Fog. The brand describes: “Embrace a new beginning with a cool and soothing grey-green hue.”
"New beginnings" is something they quote often when talking about their colour forecast and it’s essentially what it’s all about. A breath of fresh air.
Rather than settling for one specific colour, Farrow & Ball narrowed it down to 5 different hues, all of which represent the company’s trend predictions for 2022. This colour palette, similar to Sherwin-Williams’ selection, features bright, primary colours with a retro feel to them.
The selections consist of colours Babouche No.223 (a bright sunny yellow), Breakfast Room Green No.81 (a pale emerald-like green, almost turquoise), Stone Blue No.86 (a beautiful and fun blue), Incarnadine No.248 (a rich crimson red) and School House White No.291 (a classic off-white).

There’s no doubt that the past 2 years have greatly influenced these different colour choices, whatever the brand. For Dulux, it’s their colour Bright Skies™ that will define 2022. In a similar symbolism to Sherwin-Williams’ Evergreen Fog, Dulux mentions that the colour is supposed to symbolize the return to freedom, as well as optimism. Dulux UK’s creative director says:
“Right now, people want to feel revitalized and enjoy the freedoms that are returning to them, to look out and bring in new ideas. What better inspiration can we take than the endless skies around us?
Biophilic design, which embraces design cues inspired by nature, is entering the mainstream, and it is now widely known that nature makes us feel better and taking steps to bring the outside in enhances our sense of well-being.”
Very close to Dulux’s choice, Behr’s colour selection to represent the coming year is Breezeway, a cool, refreshing sea glass green. Part of a selection of 3 curated palettes of 20 hues, Breezway is meant to inspire you for new adventures and newfound passions.
The colour can be easily matched with the rest of Behr’s curated palette and “naturally harmonizes with shades of white, gray and natural wood tones for effortless style in any room”.
The beloved paint company has yet to reveal their picks for Colour of the Year 2022, and plans to announce their selections for Colour of the Year and the Colour Trends palette on October 13th at 2 pm ET!
