Colors of the Year
In recent years, Colors of the Year have been heavily influenced by blue-grays. Considering recent color trends in cabinets, we’re not surprised to see that greens are now making a big splash. By grouping these colors into categories, we can more easily talk about them in-depth.
Fresh Shades of Green
The strong influence of greens – like Breezeway, October Mist, Olive Sprig, and Evergreen Fog – are cool and fresh. These greens are usable as long-term, neutral colors anywhere in the home. They are also stunning choices for cabinetry. If shades of white or cream are in your home’s overall color palette, these greens will work great to add a pop of color.
Spectrum of Blues
Some of the colors of the year still do fall into the blue family, which we know has been very popular in cabinetry for the last five years. Orchid Ash, Bright Skies, Stone Blue and, Mountain River show how the blue tones are evolving into 2022. This broader spectrum of blues is very useable and showcases why blue has become a mainstream staple in the home.
