Global coatings company PPG has announced its 2022 Color of the Year, a hue it calls “an elegant, grounded, versatile and highly-adaptable grey-green.”

“As many of us know following a year of lockdown, the easiest way to shift your mindset is to change your environment. While we begin to trade sweatpants for strappy shoes, recipes for reservations, and a night in for a night out, our paint color preferences are shifting too, in both residential and commercial spaces,” said Amy Donato, Senior Color Marketing Manager, PPG Paint.

“DIYers, property managers, designers and architects are shifting away from the stark, neutral palettes of yesterday and opting for color in all forms. Call it rebellion, but we are certainly here for the resurgence of optimistic colors to guide us into a new era of home design.”

PPG notes that Olive Sprig can be paired well with natural materials or accents such as brass or wood.

Olive Sprig was chosen by PPG’s annual Global Color Forecasting Workshop, which also developed three color stories under the theme “Horizon.” The themes include:

  • Invaluable – which draws from rich hues such as Gooseberry, Castle Stone and Ancient Copper;
  • Introspective – which aims to create calmness and serenity with colors such as Tea Time, Peace, Silver Service and Pine Whisper; and
  • Inspired – which draws on statement-making shades such as Cenote, Aloha and Lettuce Alone.
