Pantone's Very Peri

Very Peri is Pantone's color of the year for 2022. This deep shade of periwinkle appears almost purple thanks to a violet-red undertone. The calmness of blue combined with the vivifying drama of red invokes creativity, creating a color that is refreshing and dynamic. Very Peri is a great color for bedrooms, accent walls, and any other space you wish to enliven.

Deep Aubergine

Deep aubergine and eggplant hues are already in fashion, and we don't think they’ll be going anywhere soon. As a darker color choice, deep aubergine adds richness, variety, and color while also being subtle and muted. For a bold, yet classic aesthetic, deep aubergine is a great paint color choice.


Yellow is a finicky color, but the right shade and placement can add hints of sunshine, warmth, and happiness. Buttery, citron tones are great for adding a natural glow and energizing any room, making these yellow shades ideal for bathrooms, kitchens, living rooms, and more.

Earthy Tones

Due to the events of the past couple years, many people are now gravitating toward calming earth tones that embrace the qualities of nature. Natural greens, clean blues, and warmer neutral colors have a quiet elegance and are great alternatives to dull whites and beiges.

Countering a deep aubergine or citron with gray-green, off-white, or other earthy tone is an excellent way to create aesthetic balance.

Evergreen Fog by Sherwin Williams

Speaking of earth tones, Evergreen Fog is Sherwin William's pick for 2022's color of the year. Both soothing, subtle, and versatile, this quiet green shade with a tinge of blue looks great when set against off-white, neutral, or earthy brown tones.

October Mist by Benjamin Moore

Benjamin Moore's October Mist paint color is another example of a fresh but subtle tone that feels very natural. A sage green hue, it has depth, balance, and leaves room for individual expression.
