It's always exciting seeing what the big paint companies forecast for the coming year!
Well wait for it, drum roll please...… here it is... October Mist CC550,
Benjamin Moore's Color of the year for 2022!
As people are turning towards more earth friendly products & manufacturers are creating more and more sustainable items, I think this colour is right on with the times.
Just look at how many people purchased plants at the start of the pandemic!
Bamboo furniture is hot, sustainable, strong & beautiful.
Here's a better photo of October Mist CC 550 in a bedroom, paired with their soft lilac bedding, similar to Hint of Violet 2114-60. I must say, I'm still a little hesitant specifying it to my clients as we still strongly remember what was hot 15 years ago.
A few of the colours I am fond of from their 2022 collection are: a yummy dark ivory (almost beige) called Collectors item, , a dark Navy blue called Mysterious (love that name) and a softer, pretty, green blue called Smoky green. I think they all look lovely together.
I hear from High Point Market in North Carolina, that beiges are back - not sure how I feel about that!
So, tell me, are you a fan of these 'new' 2022 colors by Benjamin Moore? I'd love to hear!
