Painting your house? You want a paint color that is on-trend, but not trendy. That means you want to pick a color that is in, but that is subtle enough to be stylish for years to come. Fortunately, the hottest interior decorating trends for 2022 feature timeless colors that should last for years. They feature an array of green colors, pleasant pastels, and a few vibrant hints of color that are surprisingly versatile.
Go With Green
2022 is the year of the greens. Not since the 1970s has green been such a popular interior and exterior decorating color. However, forget the harsh, abrasive avocado and lime green tones of that time period. Instead, think of muted, soothing greens, and fresh, bright natural colors.
Want a neutral color with a pop? Consider Benjamin Moore’s October Mist. It is one of Benjamin Moore’s highlighted colors for 2022. Not quite a true neutral, it is a subtle shade of green that will go with almost any color palette. That is because the green is tempered with gray, making it a natural compliment for blues, whites, and even grays.
Looking for a green with a little more shimmer? Consider Steam. The cool undertones in this shade make it a fabulous background color if you have embraced the gray flooring trend.
While cool greens make an excellent neutral for a home with gray tones, you can warm up your space, while still staying neutral by adding a peach tone. A true warm neutral makes skin tones look fabulous. Consider it for bathrooms, but do not limit it to those rooms. It is a great color for dining rooms, sunrooms, and studies. Behr’s Warm Blanket is a favorite neutral that you could use in almost any setting.
Blue is another hot home on-trend paint color for 2022. Blue is known for its calming properties. Another color that provides a pop of color, but also provides a neutral background for other shades, this color looks fabulous with natural woods. It is a great color for bedrooms but think outside the box and make your living spaces a calming refuge with this versatile shade.
