In search of the biggest color trends for 2022? Color plays a big part in designing a room, and home.
2022 Design Trends
The report showcased that Millennials are leading the increase in natural and contemporary designs, especially within the kitchen and bath. Moving away from white and gray as primary colors in the kitchen, designers expect nature-inspired colors to grow in prominence, notably greens and blues.
The same follows suit with bathroom designs as warmer colors, and influences from nature will have a substantial impact on emerging bathroom design trends within the next three years. Whites/Off Whites will be a popular neutral bathroom color scheme with some pops of color. We will see more pops of greens, blues, whites, grays, and wood tones. For fixtures, the trend is toward more matte and brushed finishes in black, stainless, nickel, and pewter.
Additionally, designers see increased natural light with large high-performance windows and doors for outdoor access becoming more prominent, as homeowners continue to create outdoor living, dining and cooking areas outside the home.
Color of the Year 2022
Each year a color is announced that marks what is on-trend and represents the year to come. And just as the NKBA Design Report shares, the 2022 Color of the year was right on-trend.
Pantone, Behr & Dulux chose a blue 2022 color of the year. And Benjamin Moore, Sherwin-Williams, and PPG chose a green color for the year 2022. Green and blue are wonderfully natural and calming color tones, that can be added to every room of the house.
Let’s dive in a little further on one of these colors, Sherwin Williams – Evergreen Fog. This color green is soothing, subtle, and a perfect shade to freshen up any space.
Simple, yet sophisticated, Evergreen Fog SW 9130 is a versatile and calming hue, and interchangeable color of green-meets-gray, with just a bit of blue.
Tans, creams, and browns are the perfect nature-inspired palette, creating a modern, organic feel when paired with Evergreen Fog. This palette creates a space that feels natural and easy-going, but also very relaxing and comfortable.
Sherwin Williams, Evergreen Fog brings a little of the outside in and created a welcoming and serene room.

Additionally, EASYTOUCH 966 offers a new shade called Fjord blue, which derives its name from natural bodies of water and inlets created by glaciers. This deep, saturated blue hue has a slightly warm undertone and layers in plenty of texture with natural wood tones and neutral textures and looks particularly elegant when combined with gold-colored elements.
The EASYTOUCH 966 allows one to discover new freedoms. Such as enjoying that lovely moment of relaxation with a cup of tea in your dream kitchen after a long walk along the beach.
