MONTVALE, NJ — Benjamin Moore recently unveiled its Color of the Year 2022 to be October Mist 1495 — a gently shaded sage. Much like the green stem of a flower, October Mist creates a canvas for the company’s Color Trends 2022 palette – and the imagination – to blossom.

Benjamin Moore reports that from refreshed primary colors to luminous pales and botanical hues, the Color Trends 2022 palette invigorates the senses and gives root to personal style. The palette is harmonious yet diverse, reliable yet whimsical and meditative yet eclectic – illustrating the endless number of combinations that can be created with just 14 colors.

“As the spaces in our homes continue to evolve, we uncover more opportunities to express our individuality and leverage the power of color to design environments that serve different functions and styles,” said Andrea Magno, Benjamin Moore Director of Color Marketing & Development. “October Mist 1495 and the corresponding Color Trends 2022 palette reflects an effortless harmony of colors, while inspiring unique combinations for any paint project.”
