Green – THE Color of the Year for 2022 and for Kitchens
Most of the major paint companies have announced their color(s) of the year, and there is a clear favorite – green.
There’s good reason for this. During unpredictable times, colors found in nature are intrinsically soothing to us, and the color green plays predominantly in nature’s color palette. Plus, we have more green cones in our eyes (which help us discern colors) and these additional cones make it easier for us to see green, putting less stress on our eyes, upping its calming factor even more.
You only need to look around outside to see how well green goes with the rich array of nature’s other colors; bright flowers, muted wood tones, earthy clays, soft sands, neutral stones, crisp snow-whites and even other greens.
Whether it’s a soft, mossy shade, a clear sea glass or an autumnal green-about-to-go-gold, you’ll be seeing a lot of green popping up in interior design, especially in kitchens. Here are some ways you can expect to see the color being used and perhaps, inspire you to try it in your own home.
Warm or Cool
While many Color of the Year greens include the added warmth of a touch of yellow, cooler, oceanic greens are also in the mix.
Bright or Muted
From citrusy lime, to soft, mossy sage, your favorite shade of green can be incorporated into your kitchen in many ways – cabinetry, islands, appliances, chairs, tables, backsplashes, flooring, curtains – even cookware and accessories.
Retro or Modern
Green has appeared in kitchens for many decades, from the post-depression, optimistic, minty hues of the 40’s and 50’s to the avocados and acid limes of the 60’s and 70’s, the deep forest greens of the 80’s and 90’s, all the way up to the soft mosses and smokey sages of recent Farmhouse fame. Green is a perfect balance between working as a neutral shade in design as well as a color in its own right, making it easy to pair with any range of other hues and fitting in to any décor style.
