If an interior redesign is one of your New Year's resolutions, the 2022 colors of the year are a good place to start. Every December, major paint manufacturers select a single color that best represents the current time period. Many of the 2022 colors of the year have a vibrant and playful tone to match the joy and happiness associated with what will hopefully be our final transition out of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Our REALTORS® were inspired by some of the beautiful color schemes in these Bronxville homes for sale, which made us begin to think about next year's popular design trends. Here are some of our favorite selections for the 2022 colors of the year.
- Very Peri - Pantone
This creative color is best described as a vibrant periwinkle. It's warm and friendly but is also full of energy. Very Peri 17-3938 incorporates all the calm and comfort of a traditional blue, yet joy and zest with its subtle violet undertone. It pairs well with a lush green, but can really be combined with any class colors. If you're planning to re-do the kid's rooms this year, Very Peri is a great choice. It's fun and creative, but also very comfortable.
- Laurel Leaf - Better Homes & Gardens
Laurel Leaf is a beautiful dusty green shade, which can be used to introduce an element of nature into your interior. With so many people spending much of the last two years outdoors, Laurel Leaf lets you bring the peaceful shades of nature inside your home. The color pairs well with off whites, beiges, or lighter browns. It can create a relaxing atmosphere in your home office or dining room.
- Art and Craft - Dunn-Edwards
If you're looking for a rich, sophisticated shade of brown, check out Art and Craft by Dunn-Edwards. This color is peaceful, comfortable, and has just a subtle 1970's vibe. It's almost like a cross between a rich walnut and a chocolate shade. When combined with light neutral colors, it can create a really stylish look for a dining room, living room, or entryway.
- October Mist - Benjamin Moore
A soft green with a silver tint, October Mist is a peaceful color that matches the year's nature-centric theme. This color is a beautiful choice for a dining room or bathroom. It's crisp yet calm and can be easily combined with off-whites, beiges, or lighter tones. Or you can combine it with a dark shade to add a sense of depth.
- Evergreen Fog - Sherwin-Williams
If you're looking for a darker shade of green, consider Evergreen Fog from Sherwin-Williams. This is an organic, friendly mid-tone green that can really liven up a kitchen, entryway, or bedroom. It's sophisticated and vibrant yet calming at the same time. Evergreen Fog pairs with earthy tones like brown or beige.
- Olive Spring - PPG
A soft, organic green with a very subtle gray, Olive Sprig from PPG is a beautiful mid-tone for the office or bathroom. The color itself has a natural vibe and was selected to inspire resiliency and regrowth, two themes that will be very important in 2022. Olive Sprig pairs well with naturally dark tones.
