Top Colour Trends for 2022
The top colour trends for 2022 are blues, greens, purples, pinks, corals and pastels – a beautiful array of colours that evoke serenity, happiness and transformation. Each year, design industries worldwide carefully research human behaviour and current global styles to determine what colours will be on-trend for the coming years.
Must have Colours to use in Your Home This Year
Enhance your well-being with the wonders of green – the colour most associated with nature that is balancing and calming. Plants not only make us feel uplifted, but they also improve health by removing nasty toxins from the air. In 2021 we saw the surge of botanical prints adorning our walls, furnishings and clothing. And with a growing need to be closer to nature, we saw indoor plants in people’s homes, shop windows and bars and cafes.
Benjamin More colour of the year 2022 is October Mist, a gently shaded sage green. “A colour that quietly anchors a space while encouraging individual expression”.
And Pantone’s spring/summer 2022 collection has a soft green hue called Basil, a colour that “emanates health and wellness”.
Fashion fades, but colour benefits you for a lifetime. Adorn your interiors with green this year – a timeless colour that I believe is set to stay and will stand the test of time. So if you have your eye on that green sofa, I say go for it – it will be money well-spent.
Time for serenity, the colour blue helps eliminate stress and worry; therefore, it can create tranquil spaces to relax and be at peace.
Around the world, people are stressed and anxious because of the lockdowns. Consequently, they need homes that can nurture and support well-being. Use calming soft blues to ease your mind and free yourself of worry.
In conclusion, Dulux has hit the right note with their colour of the year 2022 named Blue Skies. Dulux describes it as “A light, airy and optimistic blue that’s good for the soul. It promises to open up and revitalise your home”. It is a subtle cool blue that will work in any room in the home, paired with pastel pinks, corals and yellows for a fun and uplifting feel. Why not combine with greens and neutrals to maximise the feeling of well-being associated with nature.
Feel the love – and the warm, compassionate hug of the colour pink. A happy colour of unconditional love that creates a loving environment. What a perfect colour for 2022 because we could all do with giving compassion to our fellow humans. Pink doesn’t have the stigma it once did because there are many different tones and hues available today, from chalky pastels to popping pinks.
Shutterstock said Pacific Pink’s subtle rosy hue is their “trendiest colour in this year’s 2022 report”. Create that loving feeling in your home by adorning the walls in a soft pastel pink because studies have proved that pink can have a calming effect on our nervous system.
In addition, if crystals are your thing, use rose quartz candle holders or tumble stones throughout the home to create a more loving and kind-hearted environment.
Time for transformation: violet and purple hues are associated with spiritual enlightenment, wisdom, creativity and abundance.
Pantone announced their colour for 2022 as Very Peri – a red-violet infused blue. Pantone stated, “We are living in transformative times. PANTONE 17-3938 Very Peri is a symbol of the global zeitgeist of the moment and the transition we are going through”.
Forget about going back to normal; 2022 is the year of transformation and building new lives full of unlimited possibilities. Inject the powerful purple-violet tones in your home and soak up the transformative vibrations.
