Ace Chooses 2022 Clark+Kensington Color Trends

Ace Hardware chose three new color palettes for its Clark+Kensington 2022 Color Trends. The color palettes were inspired by a collective desire to find renewed inspiration and purpose. From transforming a room into a cozy retreat, to living out loud with vibrant colors or simply immersing into the tranquility of nature, the color trends of 2022 reflect an overarching theme of influence and inspiration.

“In some ways, we are at a crossroads today, and after the last 20 months, many of us are reassessing what really matters,” says Julie Elrod, paint business manager, Ace Hardware. “With so much change forced upon us so quickly, it’s important to feel empowered with easy ways to meaningfully influence your surroundings. The Clark+Kensington 2022 Color Trends color palettes were designed to meet people where they are today—whether you are in a mood to hibernate, explore or just be heard, this new color collection is designed to speak to all of us.”

Deliberate Simplicity provides comfort and balance with soft, subdued colors including Saturday Morning 18C-2, Stormy Weather CW-C7 and Belgian Waffle N-W20. Bold, vibrant colors make up the palette Expressive Moments, which includes fun, lively hues Sea Life 33C-5, Floating Hyacinth 43C-5 and Heirloom China 37C-7. The Outdoor Escape palette invokes wide open spaces and tranquility with nature with muted tones Olive Tree 29B-7, Chef’s Blend 26B-5 and Natural Burlap 22A-3.
