Let’s introduce the colors!
How is Sherwin Williams describing this color? “Evergreen Fog SW 9130 is a versatile and calming hue, a chameleon color of gorgeous green-meets-gray, with just a bit of blue. It's a simple but sophisticated wash of beautiful, organic color for spaces that crave a subtle yet stunning statement shade.”
According to their website, Benjamin Moore’s October Mist is a, “a gently shaded sage that quietly anchors while encouraging creative expression through color.” They also write, “Evoking the silver-green stem of a flower, October Mist creates a canvas for other colors- and your imagination- to blossom.”
And from Dulux: Bright Skies
Dulux describes their 2022 color forecast pick this way, “It’s an airy and fresh tone that opens up and breathes new life into any space.”
I think we can see a few themes emerging when we look at these 2022 color choices. They’re paler than last year and all the palettes tend to take their inspiration from organic places. The three names transport us into the air with mists, skies, and fogs. While last year’s colors tended to be richer and more grounded, these take on a mystical ethereal feel, like the bliss of a few rounds of deep breaths.
The colors sit nicely alongside other organic shades like natural woods and sunset colors. Paired with browns, oranges, golds, and creams, the palette feels forest-like. Like a hike on a mossy trail at dawn as it shifts from gray fog to gold to blue sky.
Furniture Picked Just for this Color Forecast
If you’re already dreaming of redoing your kitchen or dining room with one or more of these colors of 2022 (I know I am!), then we’ve got some perfect furniture choices that will blend right in.
The first chair we’re going to recommend is the Brooke in natural wood. This would look dreamy against any of these colors, whether they’re in your kitchen backsplash, underneath the island counter, or on your dining room walls. Brooke is available as a chair or a stool and it’s also available with an upholstered seat. Green leather would fit right in with that foggy forest vibe, but the cream Upminster or tan would also fit into that organic color palette.
Next, another natural wood chair or counter stool. Sigsbee is so versatile and would fit right into the 2022 forecast in Honey and Billygoat. The fully upholstered Honey and Billygoat Sigsbee comes with these gorgeous olive-green nylon straps which are mostly made of recycled polyester. Like the Brooke, this frame is solid wood, but it has a little more of a mid-century modern feel with those pill shaped legs. This will def breathe some new life into your space.
If you’re looking for something a little darker than natural wood, the Harper Counter Stool in Black and Rust Velvet would be a great contrast. There is one gorgeous rusty shade in the full Benjamin Moore palette called “Wild Flower” that reminds me of the Harper Stool. If things seem a bit too pale in your space for your tastes, this could be just the pick to go along with the 2022 colors of the year.
Need a coffee table? The Lewis table in its natural wood color would be a great addition to a living room space. It's also available in a side table design that is just a little taller and thinner. The two tables can be nested together for a super cute look. The organic shape of the bent wood dowels will go perfectly in your freshly painted space. And if you needed something to sit on the table, one of our planter bags in tan check would be so cute, fitting right into that organic or botanical color palette.
We can't wait to see what you do with these beautiful color trends for 2022. Tag us in your pics! We hope there are Only Good Things in store for your new year.
