2022 is Green With Envy
Rarely do all major paint brands agree on the colors that are popular in any given year, but they did when it came to voting for green as the new blue in 2022. Who can blame them – we all want a little extra green in our lives, right?
We are not surprised that green has become the “it” color, especially given the trend of bringing the outdoors in has been the direction of design for the past several years. Just look outside – well, except if it is still cold in your region and nothing is green. Green depicts growth, nature, and a fresh start. Green is more versatile than we have given it credit for, and compliments all the natural elements that home interior designers have been incorporating for the last decade.
Show Me the Green
We love that the trend pendulum has swung, balancing the overall interior and exterior concepts, but how do you get started incorporating green into your design? There’s no denying that green can sometimes be difficult to incorporate into a room unless you want a complete room makeover. But, if you choose your hues wisely and start small, you will find that it is easier than you think.
Bathrooms, laundry rooms, mud rooms and other small spaces are a good place to start. “I love Sherwin-Williams’s Color of the Year, Evergreen Fog, for a bathroom because it helps the room feel like an at-home spa,” says Sue Wadden, director of color marketing at Sherwin-Williams.
Accent pieces are a wonderful way to dip your toe into the green pond. Pillows, plants, rugs, wall décor and drapery are easy, cost-effective ways to introduce the color without jumping into the deep end.

Go Bold or Go Home
If you are ready to go all in with a complete bathroom or kitchen remodel that incorporates green, we are here for it. Green makes a great accent color, as well as a fantastic statement color on walls, wallpaper, tile, and furniture.
Given that green is the predominate color in nature, next to brown, it tends to be more calming than you might realize. Muted shades of green are especially great for all the spaces that you want to be peaceful, like playrooms, offices, bedrooms, and bathrooms. Ready to makeover a room?
