Benjamin Moore has officially announced their 2022 color of the year: Ocean Mist 1495. They’ve also come out with their 2022 Color Trends palette, said to “embrace individuality and encourages color combinations.” Benjamin Moore’s 2022 Color Trends palette “encourages experimentation and makes room for any design style.”
Benjamin Moore pulls inspiration from everyday observations and cultural influences when choosing their colors. This year’s picks remain both unique to stand out on their own and flexible to blend into your existing decor.
In August, Behr also announced their 2022 color of the year, Breezeway MQ3-21, also a cool green shade. It is “inspired by the earth’s beauty and mimics naturally stunning sea glass found on the shore of salty beaches.”
Behr’s vice president of color and creative service continues, “A new year brings the opportunity to embrace a sense of renewal and pursue untapped passions. Whether it’s lacing up our hiking books, or breaking out the gardening tools, Breezeway inspires us to fully embrace the hobbies and adventures, both near and far, that excite us. We look forward to a color that welcomes a hopeful sense of renewal, restoration, and healing.”
Along with their Color of the Year, Behr has also come out with three color trend sets for 2022. They include Flexible Spaces, Serene Sanctuary, and Natural Influences.
