Color Trends for 2022
There are two main sources that the design industry looks at when it comes to color trends: Pantone and Sherwin Williams. When Pantone declared their colors for 2022 at London Fashion Week, they predicted the trends when it came to clothing, footwear and accessories. However, when it comes to interiors, we might pay closer attention to Sherwin Williams’ color of the year 2022. “Evergreen Fog SW 9130 is a versatile and calming hue, a chameleon color of gorgeous green-meets-gray, with just a bit of blue. It’s a simple but sophisticated wash of beautiful, organic color for spaces that crave a subtle yet stunning statement shade” (Color of the Year 2022). The color is described as fresh, comfortable and versatile. It is with these colors in mind that we approach the wallpaper trends in 2022.
