Selected Colors for 2022
The colors of the year for 2022 have just been announced by two of the leading color experts.
Pantone has declared Very Peri (a shade of periwinkle) as their color for 2022.
Sherwin Williams has identified Evergreen Fog (a gray-green) as their color for 2022.
What do you think of their selections?
Obviously, these are very different colors, but they do have something in common. Both of the colors for ‘22 are cool-tone colors. They’re soft and calming. They aren’t bright, bold, stand-out-loud colors.
Why are Very Peri and Evergreen Fog the selected colors for 2022? Because of their calming nature.
Right now, because of Covid and the pandemic, people are feeling stressed. People are needing and wanting a sense of calm in their lives. That’s what these two colors provide. A sense of tranquility.
I’m LOVING these two colors for 2022!!
Style Trends for Winter ’21-’22
A style trend for this Winter is curves. Stylewise they are considered are soft and quiet. For this reason, curves support the colors for 2022. People aren’t wanting angular items. Those are too jarring and sharp. We desire softness.
Curves also represent femininity. We will see items with rounded details and curves this season. There will be more comfort and femininity in design elements for Winter.
Not crazy plump, bulbous, exaggerated looks, but items that impart relaxation and comfort. Decor pieces that are soft and welcoming.
Paper Table Runners
In the past, we saw construction paper and chalkboard table runners. Paper runners that you could write on.
Now we are seeing that trend manifest itself into paper designs. Stripes and patterns are on-trend for your tabletop. And there are SO many options!
The neat thing with paper table runners is their flexibility. They come in rolls, so you can cut them to the length you need. And if there are any spills, don’t worry, just ball it up and toss it. No need to worry if there will be a stain.
Tall tapered candles will continue to be trending this winter. You will continue to see the tall candle holders in staggering heights. Pillar candles are taking a backseat.
Most notable are the flameless candles with timers and remote controls. They are so realistic-looking. Plus they are safer than real candles, and you can set their timer and forget them. Yay!
Organic shaped dinnerware is on-trend this winter. Items that aren’t perfectly symmetrical. Items that reflect the imperfectness of nature.
Although people are craving balance, they aren’t wanting rigid symmetry. People are being drawn to organic shapes because they’re soft, peaceful, and comforting.
Organic shapes that are found in nature help to reduce stress and make us happier. Hence dinnerware in not-quite-perfect circles or ovals.
Cheeseboards are a huge trend for this winter. There is an abundance of designs, colors, and sizes.
Cheeseboards tend to be organic in nature, as they are typically made of wood. And although the display of cheese, crackers, and other tidbits is organized, it’s comfortable and casual in presentation.
A trend this winter is greenery on your table. Whether garland, fresh flowers, or small succulents, something from nature brings a pop of color to liven up the dreariness of the winter months.
These are the colors and trends you should expect to see for Winter ’21-’22. Watch for them the next time you are out shopping and see if you can spot them.
