After looking at global trends, AkzoNobel recently announced its 2022 Color of the Year, called Bright Skies, an airy, light blue that feels like a breath of fresh air.
“In 2022, Bright Skies will help us embrace new ideas and shape a new future,” says Heleen van Gent, creative director of AkzoNobel’s Global Aesthetic Center. “The color reflects the limitless skies above us, giving us the space to redefine the role of our homes, nature, the arts and new voices in our lives. As consumers look to express themselves and transform their spaces, our aim as color experts is to inspire their color confidence.”
To show how Bright Skies works with a host of other shades, the AkzoNobel Aesthetic Center has designed four decorative paint color palettes inspired by the changing role of the home: workshop colors, greenhouse colors, studio colors and salon colors. The palettes make it easy to choose and combine an array of soft neutrals and joyful hues. They can be used to define zones in multipurpose spaces, bring a sense of nature indoors, create a soothing atmosphere or encourage a sense of unity.
