2022 Colour Of The Year – General Paint

2022
Colour of the Year

Gray Mist
419B

It's the perfect shade as we look for calm
in an ever-evolving world.

Shifting perspectives with our 2022 Colour Trends.

Life at home is in an exciting state of realignment.
We’re taking second and third looks at how we use our space and how it makes us feel.

Japandi’s future looks bright.

Step into the hybrid world of Japandi. This new minimalism aesthetic combines Scandinavian design with the traditional elegance of a Japanese sensibility to create a best of both worlds’ style.

Shifting into specialized rooms.

More time at home means spaces need to work in more specialized ways. Take a second look and what was once a guest room can become a schoolroom. A closet can morph into an office. Even a small nook can have a fresh purpose.

Everything old is new again.

Secondhand or heirloom pieces are refreshed in contemporary colourways for an elevated look. Changing the feel of large and small décor pieces with a modernizing colour rethink is a trend that’s here to stay.

Cottagecore looks to the past.

Nostalgia has struck a chord with many desiring a simpler, more honest way of living. This romantic look is about domestic tranquility and creating a charming space untouched by the hustle culture.

Jumping off the open floor plan bandwagon.

The biggest residential trend in decades is fading from view in favor of a broken plan or flexible living. As rooms take on more diverse roles, we’re creating divisions and walls to add privacy for personal or business needs.

Moving into slow living.

Rural escapism provides a form of self-care for city dwellers. Seeking comfort by escaping into a quiet home oasis, they value lazy days meandering without a plan and no to-do lists in sight.

The 2022 Collection

Our 2022 Colour Trends shades are freshly curated to work with shifting perspectives and
