Window Treatment Color Trend Report — 2022
2022 Colors of the Year
Mother Nature is taking center stage in 2022, with shades of green being the top picks for color of the year from many of the key “in the know” players.
However, green doesn’t hold the coveted top spot. That belongs to a brand new blue, created by Pantone.
A Fusion of Blue and Violet Red
The Pantone pick for color of the year, called Very Peri, is a periwinkle blue with violet red undertones that adds a pop of color to a space. Very Peri encourages creativity, imagination and the possibilities that lay ahead as we reconnect with our lives outside the confines of our homes.
This is the first time Pantone has created a new color for its color of the year program—and like other Pantone choices from previous years, we’re sure to see Very Peri turning up everywhere.
Nods to Nature
In contrast to the energy radiated by Very Peri, green is a nurturing, comforting hue that signifies growth and new beginnings—embodying a fresh start and hope for the future. Green is also a way of channeling the outdoors inside, and bringing with it a calming effect to our otherwise busy lives.
Olive Sprig—a warmer, lush green—is the PPG selection for color of the year. Similar in hue to sage leaves, its yellow undertones pair well with warm colors, like soft rose.
Another botanical-inspired color, silvery, neutral-green October Mist from Benjamin Moore contains gray along with a hint of yellow, for a soothing, relaxed shade.
Going from mist to haze is Evergreen Fog. A gray-green with just a hint of blue, Evergreen Fog pairs well with earthy neutrals like gold, tan and beige. This pick, from Sherwin Williams, adds richness and depth to interiors.
Not all the greens for 2022 are subdued, though. If you’re looking to brighten a space with green, Breezeway from Behr is the ticket. Reminiscent of sea glass, Breezeway evokes a beachy vibe that works well with shades of white, gray and taupe.
