Colors + Patterns of 2022

2022 is the year of color and patterns in interior spaces, and we are here for it! No longer are the days of white on white on a beiger white. Post pandemic has sparked bolder colors and bolder patterns in our homes. Using vibrant printed textiles, custom upholstery, and window treatments is an enjoyable way to bring personality into the interior space. The same goes for color trends, which are focused on ways to bring in pops of color to liven up your space, especially with shades of green!

Home Decor Color of the Year

We’re seeing the trend for paint colors in homes leaning towards blue shades and greens.

Pantone, Behr, and Dulux chose a shade of blue for the 2022 color of the year. Pantone opted for the most vibrant blue (and almost purple) shade and Benjamin Moore, Sherwin-Williams, and PPG chose a shade of green for the year 2022. Examples are Sherwin-Williams’ color of the year, which was specifically Evergreen Fog, a neutral soothing green. Behr’s was Breezway, a steely blue with a hint of grey.

This doesn’t necessarily mean you’re not on trend if you’re not leaning towards painting your room a green or blue shade; other trending paint colors are moody purples, off-white neutrals, and even powdery brown hues.

Add Pops of Color

Painting an entire room vibrant colors can feel overwhelming and overdone, so instead you can easily add pops of color with wallpaper, furniture, and décor. Another way to add a colorful facelift to your space is painting walls, doors, and moulding with greens, blues, mauves, and yellows to uplift and frame prints and patterns. When you place purposeful pops of colors it allows the eye to move throughout the room!
