This color is not only the Benjamin Moore 2022 Color of the Year, but it is also the perfect neutral silver-green hue. It can be dressed up with your fall foliage to be a classic choice for the Fall season, or it can be a great complement to your winter berries and Lenox China set dressing your tablescape. We can all agree this color is neutral enough to be a year-round staple, as well as a highlight for seasonal decor.

Looking for more of a crisp white to freshen your space? Look no further. This trending color choice checks all of the boxes when it comes to a clean white, but excels (yet again, Benjamin Moore) at making you and your guests feel wrapped in your favorite linen sheets with the softness that this paint choice exudes. It is hard to beat Benjamin Moore when it comes to their soft whites, and they definitely did it again with this trending selection. Transform any space with any materials and metals with this white and you are sure to be pleased with this pick.

Similar to October Mist, but with a bit more warmth and depth, Sherwin Williams brought a unique grey-green to this year’s color trends. This green is more of a natural statement that promotes a healing and wellness ambiance the moment you enter the room. With all we’ve been through the past two years with the pandemic, who wouldn’t be searching for a color that brings rejuvenation to their room? This color is a great choice for those with natural wood accents and flooring, as well as a nice pairing with your succulents and fern plants. (We see you plant moms and dads.) Any guest who enters your home during this holiday season is sure to feel like they’re inhaling a fresh wisp of the eucalyptus oil you are inspired to diffuse with this paint color.

Drop the mic. We found the color to make your candlelit dinner feel as elegant and flawless as your turkey you spent 12 hours cooking. Urbane Bronze is the dark and dashing older brother that your beige walls just envy. It is rich and paired well with really any pallet that includes whites and metals (preferably antique brass or gold tones.) A true showstopper that is meant for guests to gawk over. I mean how hard is it really to paint your mantle in a couple of days? Your guests need this color. Take the plunge and make this color the backdrop to all of your holiday memories gathered around the fireplace this year.

“You belong among the wildflowers..” Tom Petty knew this color would be a top trend and why wouldn’t you trust such an iconic American idol? This unique shade of red is the perfect combo of coral, orange, and pink. One of the most important parts of being a hostess is providing your guests with a powder room that wows them upon arrival. Our Florida sunsets are nicely paired with this color choice and make any trip to the commode worth their while. Pair this color with any natural granite countertops, beige tones, and Tommy Bahama palm prints to create a tropical, Florida Oasis.
