Time for a colour refresh at home? If you’re ready to try out a new palette, you might be looking for a little inspiration. Luckily, many paint companies have announced their colour selections for 2022 to give you a headstart. Whether incorporated into your home through paint or wallpaper, furniture or decorative accents, take a look at these stylish home decor hues that are trending for next year.
Soft natural greens
Bring a touch of nature indoors with understated botanical shades of green, such as sage. An invigorating colour, green represents health, growth, and wellness—which we can all use a little more of nowadays. In fact, both Benjamin Moore’s colour for 2022, October Mist, as well as Sherwin Williams’ Evergreen Fog strike a beautiful balance between green and grey to add silvery sophistication to any room in your house.
Dreamy greys and whites
You can’t go wrong with classic grey and white tones to freshen up a space. Achieve a sense of simplicity and tranquility—especially in the bedroom for restful sleeps—with similar hues to Pantone’s Core Classics for 2022, Snow White and Northern Droplet. Tip: neutral shades such as these are timeless, meaning they’re ideal for appealing to buyers if you plan to sell your home in the future.
Rich earth tones
For those looking to be a bit more bold at home, earth tones like clay, terracotta, and copper that reflect organic landscapes can add a feeling of warmth, while honouring the nature-inspired trend. Don’t want to commit to painting a full room? Use these shades for an accent wall to brighten an area, or incorporate with textiles like rugs and bedding, or with decor such as dishware or artwork.
To add a touch of joy without being overwhelming, opt for cheerful pastels like lilacs, pale yellows, soft pinks, or Behr’s soothing colour for 2022, Breezeway, inspired by sea glass. These shades work well just about anywhere, from the entryway, to the kitchen, to children’s bedrooms—or give the front door a fresh new look for extra curb appeal.
