New Year, New Colors: Navigating 2022 Color Trends


2022’s color trends have been named. What does Ply Gem have to offer?


Toward the end of each year, everyone from interior designers to paint manufacturers share their color predictions for the coming year. “Colors of the Year” try to capture the design vibe of the moment, and this year the experts homed in on colors connected to nature.


What are the color prophets saying about trends for 2022?


Among the 2022 color-of-the-year predictions, one color family is making a recurring appearance: a soothing, nature-inspired grayish-green. According to Residential Products magazine, the color trends experts at many paint brands have noticed that online searches for the term “green paint” have more than doubled since 2020. So it’s not surprising that paint brands like PPG, Sherwin-Williams and Glidden all named 2022 colors of the year in this hue, including Olive Sprig, Evergreen Fog and Guacamole.

Psychologists say green tones elicit feelings of calmness, restoration, regrowth and sophistication. Given that the global pandemic kept many at home, people may be seeking renewal and reconnection to nature.

Many homeowners are turning that desire for renewal toward their homes, with renovation ideas from repainting a single room to transformative projects like updating the home’s curb appeal by replacing exterior siding. Incorporating color on the exterior of your home can help add character, blend in with nature and create an emotional response.
