Colour Trends 2022


One of the many great things about working in the Interior Design industry is the ability to see into the future, a clairvoyant of colour + style so to speak. Personally I'm not a huge fan of the Winter months so pouring over the latest forecasts of how our interiors will be looking next Spring into Summer serves as the perfect remedy for chasing away any winter blues.

Whilst we are still eagerly awaiting 'colour of the year' announcements from the likes of Benjamin Moore on October 13, other results are already in...

Undoubtedly there is still a leaning towards the healing powers of nature as a point of reference as we continue to view our homes as a place of refuge and safety from a world in slow recovery from the Covid pandemic, particularly evident in Farrow & Ball's choices of Breakfast Room Green and the deliciously chalky School House White. 

However, there's also a notably upbeat and optimistic trend towards pick-me-up palettes featuring energetic colour picks such as Pantone's dynamic Innuendo with it's promise of a brighter future. Then there is the utterly fresh Bright Skies by Dulux, which echos our collective desire for a fresh and positive start in this brave new world.

Babouche, a cheerful and heartwarming yellow is one of five hues for 2022 picked by my go-to brand, Farrow & Ball. Their handpicked selection is intended to signal a sense of function form and comfort, as Joa Studholme (Colour Curator at F&B) explains;

"They are an eclectic mix of the pure and the humble that evokes the warmth and harmony of a more innocent age while celebrating life today. Function goes hand in hand with ornament, using colours and finishes in unusual ways to celebrate the principles of utility, kindness and honesty."

I've explored some of my favourite of the 2022 colour predictions below and pieced together some accessory combinations to enhance each colour scheme, do you have a favourite...?
