In the coming year, most of the trendsetting companies do not make us happy with bright saturated colors. They rely on muted palettes and pastel shades. But there are also exceptions. For example, Pantone.
December is the time to choose the palette of the future design. Well-known manufacturers of paints and varnishes and not only have already chosen their colors. We tell you what will be relevant in the interior colors of 2022, according to the market leaders.
Trendy interior colors of 2022
The trendsetter in the world of design, the Pantone Institute, answered the main question on December 9: what color in 2022 is the most fashionable in the interior? The company decided not to skimp on shades and appointed two main ones at once: this is a light gray Ultimate Gray and a yellow Illuminating. The first means strength and energy, strength and stability, and the second, bright and cheerful, inspires hope.
According to the company itself, this combination, on the one hand, should strengthen, on the other, give faith in positive changes. Obviously, after a not very successful 2020.
In the interior, this combination is one of the favorites of many. Gray is the perfect base for any room, from the bedroom and living room to the bathroom and dressing room. And yellow is able to dilute the boring achromatic base. However, we advise you not to limit yourself to this pair, try to add deeper tones: it can be the same mustard, fawn or sandy. And gray will dilute graphite, silver and steel. This will not make the design look flat and naive.
American paint manufacturer Benjamin Moore relies on a cold palette. And the main thing in it, in their opinion, will be Aegean Teal (“Aegean turquoise”). The turquoise has hints of gray, it is exactly like fans muted, but not too blokloy range. Moreover, it acts not only as accents, but also as a base. The easiest way to imagine such a wall or floor decoration in a bathroom, however, in the bedroom and in the living room, it can look no less beautiful.
In addition to Aegean turquoise, there are 11 more colors in the scheme, which complement it and create a very harmonious combination. If you like a cool palette with warm accents, take a closer look at this option.
