Going Green and Periwinkle Perspective

Color is always one of the most influential aspects of design trends and 2022 is no exception. Nature reigns supreme this year with shades of green as the go-to-hue. The copious amount of time spent outdoors continues to inspire us with serenity as the goal of this neutral palette. Expect to see seaweed, sage and emerald present this year’s design elements. Also embracing transitions of the times is color giant Pantone. Known for cultivating the “it” design colors each year, they have made the transition from the neutrals to the bolds in 2022, announcing that their color of the year is a joining of blue & violet red. Named Very Peri, this color is vibrant, bold and exciting and is sure to enhance both interiors and exteriors alike.
