Sherwin-Williams Reveals Its 2022 Color of the Year

Ushering in a new era of nostalgic mid-tones, Sherwin-Williams announced its 2022 Color of the Year is Evergreen Fog, a nourishing and sophisticated gray-green. 

“With neutrals warming up, consumers leaning into creative expression at home and greens increasing in popularity, the Sherwin-Williams team saw Evergreen Fog emerge as a clear choice for the 2022 Color of the Year,” says Sue Wadden, director of color marketing at Sherwin-Williams. 

The color offers a subtle yet stunning statement shade and is ideal for both interior and exterior projects at home and in commercial spaces. 

“The familiar, comfortable nature of Evergreen Fog shines as a reassuring backdrop and freshens up any space,” Wadden says. “Create depth and texture with a mix of natural-looking textiles. Add a little gleam with a fusion of metals—champagne gold, warm brass or inky black.”

The Sherwin-Williams global color and design team researches and identifies key trends in color and uses those findings to create an annual Colormix Forecast. The Color of the Year comes the Colormix Forecast, which for 2022 includes 40 colors and four palettes.
