Benjamin Moore’s Colour of the Year for 2022 is October Mist CC-550, a gently shaded sage that transitions from soft and dreamy to invigorating and nurturing. It has an anchoring quality on its own, yet it can also be like a canvas in a space, encouraging creative expression. Its adaptable nature allows it to combine well with so many other colours, from soft to bold and everything in between!
Benjamin Moore’s Colour of the Year for 2022 is October Mist CC-550
It seems that these days many of us are yearning for common ground. However, at the same time, we want to express our uniqueness, our individuality. There is a need for nurturing and comfort, but we also want to play and explore and have moments of escape! From a colour perspective, the green colour family is a master of harmony. It bridges these dichotomies as it provides balance and stability, but also plays well with other colours, allowing for personalization. The green colour story serves as the foundation for our entire Colour Trends 2022 Collection of 14 colours. Much like the stem of a flower, it supports an abundance of diverse colours from the palest of pastels to bold, high chroma hues and more rooted, earthy tones.
From bedrooms to living rooms to kitchens, October Mist CC-550 is an easy fit for any room. It can be used as a connecter colour on walls that flow from room to room as its neutral quality brings harmony to other colours. It can serve as a backdrop on all 4 walls in any room allowing other colours, patterns and textures to come to the forefront. It can be painted on furniture, ceilings, cabinets and vanities, in addition to walls.
October Mist CC-550 is the perfect colour to help us embrace and celebrate individuality and creativity as we move into 2022 and beyond.
