Minwax’s 2022 Color of the Year mirrors many other hues for this year. Gentle Olive is a wood finish water-based color stain that features green hues rooted in nature and brings a happy, meditative mood to any space.
“Gentle Olive is the perfect color of the year because it creates our home as a sanctuary,” says Sue Kim, Minwax color expert. “Gentle Olive is the perfect color to bring home because it really resonates with our wellness and health at home through the connection to nature.”
Kim says that Minwax Gentle Olive works well with the trending Japandi style, which is a combination of Japanese and Scandinavian styles and focuses on simplicity in the home. Gentle Olive pairs well with cool grays, warm grays and cool pastels. It also brings out the natural tone of wood, says Kim. It is available nationwide in both Solid and Semi-Transparent forms.
