Last week, coatings company Dunn-Edwards Paints announced its 2022 Color of the Year.

Art and Craft (DET682) is a “timeless, versatile hue that beckons us to revisit the classics.” The company says that the dark cinnamon brown shade is named for the Arts and Craft period in American architectural history.

The color is part of the company’s 2022 Color + Design Trends Naturrensing collection of soft, earth tones that aims to move us toward a minimalist, sustainable aesthetic.

“Optimism means embracing reality and new opportunities. We see our color and design choices mirroring our inner needs as we are challenged to build new paths,” said Sara McLean, Color Expert and Stylist for Dunn-Edwards, in a press release. “Art and Craft is a timeless shade that embodies both the past as well as the optimism and excitement of the future.”

The decision, the company says, is based on six key influences: nature’s inspiration, the trend of browns and warming colors, a new era of artistic rebirth, the classics and a rural fantasy, a '70s rebirth and a health and wellness connection.

Last week, coatings company Dunn-Edwards Paints announced its 2022 Color of the Year.

According to the company, Art and Craft is the perfect backdrop for showcasing handmade objects and works of art. It is also inspired by academia, 17th-century painters, cottagecore and artists.

“This is a versatile color that we expect to see applied across a variety of industries and disciplines throughout 2022,” McLean said. “I see bohemian glamour and a touch of autumn in Paris. Art and Craft is truly a down-to-earth color that signifies stability, comfort and calm, a color that expresses what we all seek right now.”
