Paint 2022 Colour Trends

We have been looking at all the 2022 Colour Trends and getting inspiration. We thought we would share a little rundown of what we are seeing. Lots of greens this year along with browns and earthy colours like terra cotta. With pops of bright shades. Here are the colour trends from Farrow & Ball and Dunn-Edwards Paints.

Farrow & Ball Paint Colour Trends 

Farrow & Ball has chosen 5 colours they predicted to be hot this year. We are constantly seeing green featured for 2022 so Breakfast Room Green was not a surprise. Both Sherwin Williams and Benjamin Moore have chosen greens for there colour of the year. We do love that Farrow & Ball have picked some bright colours. 

Farrow & Ball Colour Curator Joa Studholme: 

“There is something inherently human in the colours that we are attracted to for 2022, as well as in the way we use them,” says Joa, “Décor is moving forward while drawing inspiration from the modest character of the world of folk and craft, using five significant shades that extol the virtues of a simple life and can be used in any combination and in any room.

“They are an eclectic mix of the pure and the humble that evokes the warmth and harmony of a more innocent age while celebrating life today.”

These colours all work well with each other as you can see from the photos below. School House White is a lovely soft white without a cool undertone. Babouche has a cheerful brightness but is still dignified. Breakfast Room Green is a lively green that looks beautiful in both sunlight and low light. Stone Blue is a saturated blue that works well in traditional spaces or as a pop of colour in more contemporary rooms. Incarnadine is a classic crimson that is both rich and glamorous. 



Dunn-Edwards Paint Colour Trends 

Dunn-Edwards has done a number of colour stories for 2022. They have picked DET 682 Art and Craft as there colour of the year. This is a warm earthy brown. It is featured in the Naturrensing colour story. Art and Craft is a moody colour that can act as a foundation. Try it with  Cotton Club (DET431) and Gypsum Rose (DET452).


 Sara McLean, Color Expert and Stylist for Dunn-Edwards:

“Optimism means embracing reality and new opportunities. We see our color and design choices mirroring our inner needs as we are challenged to build new paths, Art and Craft is a timeless shade that embodies both the past as well as the optimism and excitement of the future.”
