Color Crush: Sherwin-Williams Color of the Year 2022 Evergreen Fog


I think we all can agree that after two challenging years full of surprises, 2022 brings feelings of hope, positive changes, and new beginnings. That’s exactly what Sherwin-Williams had in mind when they announced the 2022 Color of the Year: Evergreen Fog.

This gorgeous grey-meets-green shade effortlessly encapsulates the beauty of life as we know it. Fun, yet sophisticated. Subtle, yet stunning. Comforting, yet fresh. All otherwise known as a match made in heaven.





We’re Green With Envy

“Evergreen Fog inspires us to begin again and is a great choice for modern interiors and exteriors,” says Sue Wadden, Sherwin-Williams’ Director of Color Marketing.

Not only does the shade represent new beginnings, but it is also one. For years now, cooler, bolder tones took the lead in the previous color of the year trends. Evergreen Fog introduces a new era of magical mid-tones perfect for any intrigued design-lover.

Incorporating Evergreen Fog Into Your Space

One of the greatest features of Evergreen Fog is its neutrality and versatility. This makes the shade easy to incorporate into any home, inside or out.

Pair it perfectly with a color palette of fresh beiges, wicker browns, or muted golds. Its modern appearance adds a regenerative touch to any space that may feel dull or outdated in your home. Here are a few ideas we think you may love:

In the Kitchen

Looking for a more affordable option to upgrade your kitchen? We recommend painting your cabinets and incorporating the gorgeous hue glazed on your cabinets with a fresh white backsplash and gold (or copper!) hardware finishes. After all, dinner parties are on their way back.

Sue Wadden suggests using the tone to “create depth and texture with a mix of natural-looking textiles. Add a little gleam with a fusion of metals — champagne gold, warm brass, or inky black.”

In the Office

It’s no secret that COVID-19 advanced the remote workforce in early 2020. Although you may have initially dusted off your home office at the start of the pandemic, it’s time for a much-needed upgrade. Emerald Fog is the no-brainer refresh that may even make you look forward to your video calls again.

Painted on the walls, Emerald Fog would stun paired with a wooden desk and urban bronze decor. Add in a few potted plants for complementary greenery and you’re all set for a day’s work.

In the Bedroom

Your bedroom is the oasis you seek to unwind in after a long day, which is why we always recommend regular design updates to keep it feeling fresh. We imagine detailed wainscoting paired with Emerald Fog above for a gorgeous earthly depth that will dress up your existing decor.

Not ready for a full-walled commitment? Try a trendy accent wall or Emerald Fog painted dressers and nightstands.
