2022 Interior Colour Trends

Depending on what magazine or paint company you look at, everyone has their own 2022 colour trends of the year.  Interior colour trends for the year  give you the basis to start your interior decorating project. The colour doesn’t have to be splashed all through the house.  It can be a small pop of colour on either one wall, in one room, or used to cover a piece of furniture or accent accessory.


Our home is a reflection of us and helps us set our mood. With everything that’s gone on in the past 24 months, 2022 has become the year of new beginnings, and we predict that shades that embody a sense of rejuvenation will skyrocket in popularity. 

Home décor colour trends that feature earthy tones that evoke the natural world, warm neutrals ushering in calmness, and golden yellows brightening every environment will also maintain their popularity. Additionally, vivacious green shades along with sultry hues are also predicted to make a bold impact as the year’s go-to accent shades. 

For those colour enthusiasts looking for inspiration, here are the six shades and tones that will dominate in 2022 interior colour trends.

  •  Gray-Green

Leading paint companies all agree: 2022 is the year for gray-green. The sophisticated hue symbolizes balance and harmony often seen in the natural world. The hue is subtle enough to be used in many ways either as a bold colour on the wall or a pop of colour on kitchen cabinets.

  •  Earthy Tones

Earthy neutrals and nature-inspired greens are colours that everyone enjoys and can easily relate to for 2022 colour trends. Shades of green are on the rise from sage to deeper tones. You can always count on a rich shade of green to bring out calmness in the home and bring the sense of the great outdoors in.

  • Citron

Shades of yellow have always had a bad reputation over the last few years. But this year its making a comeback in a big way. People are looking for ways to warm up their homes. If you think of a sunflower you get the great hues of yellow with an earthy green tone on the leaves. A great pick-me-up!

  •  Deep Aubergine

Deep dark hues such as deep aubergine can be dramatic in space. Paired with monochromatic design elements they can give a space a level of sophistication.  It’s an adventurous colour that can be used a lot or a little.

  • Chartreuse

I love Chartreuse.  It is one of my favourite colours and has been for years, not just as one of the colour trends for 2022. Electrifying and joyful, the zippy shade is not for the faint of heart. It adds a great punch to the room on either the walls or upholstery.


  •  Warm Neutrals

Everyone loves neutral colour palettes. Warm neutral colours give us a cozy and calm feeling. Consider using a  rich neutral for a high-traffic area of your home, like your living room, for a versatile shade that will work with a variety of decor styles while creating an inviting ambience for entertaining.


The top paint and colour experts of  Farrow & Ball , Dulux and Benjamin Moore, the leading paint and colour experts have all revealed their Colour Choices of the Year 2022. The selection signals a sense of optimism and hope for the future, as well as a move towards incorporating elements of wellbeing into the home.

As colour is a personal choice and can resonate in distinct ways for different people, some have gravitated towards calming  warm neutrals to counter the turbulence of the pandemic, whilst others have chosen to immerse themselves in positive, vivid colours, reaching for optimism such as deep aubergine, chartreuse and citron. 

Dulux’s Bright Skies is a fresh and airy blue, Benjamin Moore chose a gentle shade of sage, whilst Farrow & Ball predicts a cheerful rainbow, from the spicy yellow Babouche No.223 to the lively Breakfast Room Green No.81.

Be creative and use colours that make you feel good so that every time you step through the door you love being home…….
