PORTLAND, OR — Miller Paint announced its Spring Color Trends for 2022, taking a cue from the natural environment. The company is predicting that homeowners will embrace layers of green in a color palette that calms and energizes, soothes, and surprises.

“More and more, people are choosing immersive experiences with nature — like forest-bathing and terrarium-building — to help reduce stress, improve mental well-being, lower heart rates, and help us unplug from our virtual world,” said Puji Sherer, Vice President of Marketing, Color & Brand for Miller Paint. “Green is a versatile and vibrant color that can shift between a grounding backdrop, like evergreen trees in a forest, or serve as a welcome accent, like lichen on a trail. Regardless of the shade, green connects us to the natural world.”

Colors in the Spring Color Trends for 2022 include: 

  • Vegetarian | 0430 — A grounded green that feels both earthy and fresh, with rich leafy greens and emerald undertones;
  • Rediscover | 0408 — A subdued, warm sage that shifts with the light;
  • Yellow Umbrella | 0800 — A yellow-green that is energetic and unapologetic and thrives in the Pacific Northwest’s mossy climate;
  • Desiree | 1219 — Miller Paint’s 2022 Color of the Year, this softly shaded orchid hue is versatile and complex, and references lilac, lavender and orchid.

“Springtime inspires homeowners to refresh the spaces that connect their interior and exterior living areas – from patios to outdoor fireplaces,” said Justin Waddell, owner of Bloke Botanical. “Green is a classic neutral and can help you create a personal sanctuary that heals and offers refuge.”

To celebrate spring, Miller Paint is sharing instructions for a Monochromatic Wall project featuring two of the spring colors: Vegetarian and Rediscover. This DIY project provides a monochromatic approach to a traditional architectural element. Additionally, Miller Paint exterior products is offering projects to spruce up an outdoor living space, from striped Adirondack chairs to a color cube ladder for your garden.
