So… much… colour. Being in the business of painting we see it all day… everyday. We dream in colour as well! Yes, all of them! It’s the beginning of 2022 and this years colour trends are out!
Where do you start? Are you a person that chooses a colour and then designs the room around it. Or, do you find that really spectacular accent piece and pull your colours from it?
Whatever your design style, your personal colour palette is totally unique and completely subjective. Depending on what paint brand you choose, they all have their own specific colour trends that are published at the beginning of each year. Interior designers have their own set as well.
So, if you’re thinking of redecorating and switching things up a bit, checking what’s new and popular is a great place to start. It can still get overwhelming so we’re going to give you some eye candy from a few brands to spark your creativity and get your juices flowing!
First, we’re going to look at Benjamin Moore’s 2022 trends.
If you’re not a fan of deep colour tones, then this years selection is for you. It’s filled with wide range of pales with a handful of deeper choices to compliment them. Though, some of the deeper tones would look amazing as your primary colour choice as well.
Next we’ll check out Behr. They have a pretty flexible trend selection for 2022 featuring some punchy primary colours like Dark Cobalt Blue, Lingonberry Punch and Cornstalk. There’s a nice array of pale tones as well that mirror some of Benjamin Moore’s palette.
Lastly, we’ll look at some choices by a myriad of interior designers. Granted they too pull their trends from the various paint manufacturers, they tend to group the colours common to most and provide detailed rationales on why they’re a great choice. If you’d like to read some of those, check out this link to Veranda.
As you can see there’s so much to choose from and so many directions you could go! That’s the beauty of colour… the possibilities are indeed endless!
