This year’s crop of top paint colors isn’t green with envy but definitely features several green hues. From soft sage hues to green-blue tones, greens dominated the list of 2022 Colors of the Year, with five major paint manufacturers choosing a shade of green as its Color of the Year.
“Our global color stylists agreed early on that green would be prevalent in 2022 because it symbolizes growth and rejuvenation—something we are all craving as we live through the ongoing pandemic,” says Ashley McCollum, associate marketing manager at PPG.
Arianna Cesa, Benjamin Moore’s associate manager of color marketing and development, says the green color family was prominent among the colors her team considered for Color of the Year.
“Green exudes balance and stability, but it also pairs perfectly with a variety of other colors, enabling personalization,” Cesa says.
