You don’t have to follow the trend of the yearly chosen Pantone colors of course. However, we recommend keeping an eye out for these picks and listening to your impressions, feelings about it. If you like the color, feel free to incorporate it into your home and paint it on your walls. Always choose colors for your walls that match you and your family’s style.
The Pantone color trend
The Pantone Color Institute, the globally known authority on color choice and inspiration, for decades has sought to match colors each year to the global events and sensations of the respective year. There are some who believe that colors are a vital part of our everyday lives. It comes naturally to us, and we don’t spend time pondering about how each day we are affected. Speaking from over a decade of experience, I share my thoughts and recommendations about wall colors and their effects on us in my article, The Effect of Color on Everyday Life.
Each year Pantone announces next year’s color, which serves as a trend setter for the year to come. For 2021, they chose two colors, Ultimate Grey and Illuminating.
The color of 2022: Purple of Pantone Very Peri
The choice for this year landed on shade Pantone 17-3938, named Very Peri. According to the official description, the color embodies the constant tranquility of blue and the vibrant energy of red at the same time.
In summary, the color of 2022 symbolizes and promises a brighter future of calm and joy.
Wall colors for everyday life
One can appreciate the thought behind the chosen color, but in all honesty, I cannot see that this shade will become too popular in the building industry, or that it will become a trend among homeowners as a wall color. But never say never!
I imagine it will have more success in the world of home furnishings, décor, and textiles.
The color of 2022 from Sherwin Williams
As a professional painter working with Sherwin Williams day in and day out, I would like to introduce you to their chosen color for 2022. Sherwin William’s color of the year is Evergreen Fog SW9130. This is a greenish-grey tint that pairs well with natural wood furnishings and floors.
From my personal experience, people were eager to use it in their homes. Many of my clients chose this light grey for their walls, which was in perfect harmony with white doors, trims, and window frames.
