Blending the faithfulness and constancy of blue with the energy and excitement of red, Pantone’s Color of the Year, Very Peri, “encompasses the qualities of the blues, yet at the same time possesses a violet-red undertone, displaying a sprightly, joyous attitude and dynamic presence that encourages courageous creativity and imaginative expression.”


PPG announced Olive Sprig as its 2022 Color of the Year. Relaxed yet enticing, Olive Sprig “is a midtone, neutral, lush green that emulates the feeling of soothing aloe vera or a fragrant plant. It is a perfect color for any interior space and pairs beautifully with brass accents and wood tones.” In addition to the Color of the Year, PPG has also “collected” three color palettes deemed—Introspective, Inspired, and Invaluable. This collection of warm, mood-boosting and glamorous shades will enhance any room.



Part of its Softened Refuge Color Collection, Sherwin-Williams announced Aleutian as its 2022 Color of the Year. This perfectly balanced, washed indigo pairs well with wood tones in any shade, “creates space for refuge, and because it’s grounded in both warm and cool tones, it brings relaxation to any room.”


BEHR Paint Company announced cool and peaceful Breezeway as its 2022 Color of the Year. “The silvery green shade, part of the BEHR® 2022 Color Trends Palette, is inspired by the earth’s beauty, and mimics naturally stunning sea glass found on the shore of salty beaches. Moving easily from casual to coastal, and modern to vintage styling, Breezeway pairs perfectly with the palette’s 20 colors, inspiring us to enter the new year on a hopeful note, while still centering the home as an ultimate safe-haven and oasis.”
