BENJAMIN MOORE| From their library of more than 3,500 color candidates, Benjamin Moore selected October Mist 1495 as its 2022 Color of the Year. Describing it as “evoking the silver-green stem of a flower,” they offer the gently shaded sage hue as an ideal grounding canvas for layering other shades.
SHERWIN-WILLIAMS| Soothing and subtle, Sherwin-Williams selected Evergreen Fog SW 9130 for its 12th official Color of the Year. “Evergreen Fog is a sophisticated wash of color for spaces that crave a subtle yet stunning statement shade,” said Sue Wadden, director of color marketing at Sherwin-Williams. Evergreen Fog is part of Sherwin-Williams’ Colormix Forecast, which, for 2022,features 40 colors and four palettes.

PANTONE | In stark contrast to the other Color of Year selections, the Pantone Color Institute opted for a livelier hue—Very Peri—a newly created color that the company describes as “displaying a carefree confidence and a daring curiosity that animates the creative spirit.”
“Creating a new color for the first time in the history of our Pantone Color of the Year educational color program reflects the global innovation and transformation taking place,” said Laurie Pressman, Vice President of the Pantone Color Institute. “As society continues to recognize color as a critical form of communication, and a way to express and affect ideas and emotions and engage and connect, the complexity of this new red-violet infused blue hue highlights the expansive possibilities that lay before us”.
