Benjamin Moore Paint Colors of the Year — 2022

October Mist 1495, a gently shaded sage that quietly anchors a space while encouraging individual expression through color, is the Benjamin Moore Color of the Year 2022!

This subtle color is harmonious with so many other accent colors and takes over the spotlight from a teal blue that ruled the color of the year honors during 2021.

It seems to signify a welcome peacefulness or quietness in a world that has seen more than its share of upheaval and uncertainty in the past few years.

You can view the October Mist 1495 along with the 14 other hues in the Color Trends 2022 palette via Moore’s YouTube video, Benjamin Moore Paint 2022 Color Trends.

This also provides ideas for how the colors can be used in various room settings.  The Color Trends 2022 palette features a range of supporting colors in the same vein – calm and subdued – that inspire unique combinations for any paint project.

For an even richer look, you may want to check out the Benjamin Moore Aura paint line, a premium product that features Moore’s proprietary Color Lock® technology, ensuring long-lasting color and no color rub-off.  Users have praised its unparalleled color depth and richness that provides a smooth, uniform color, with no intense chemical smell.
