Painting is one of the easiest DIY projects you can undertake to change the look and feel of a room. Paint is also a great way to incorporate the latest colour trends throughout your home. In 2022, green hues dominate major paint brands’ Colour of the Year. These shades of green, including PPG’s soothing Olive Sprig and SICO’s Cool Current, draw inspiration from nature. Find out how you can incorporate these beautiful neutral shades into your life and home.
1. Create an Indoor Sanctuary
Green is a naturally calming colour, so it makes sense to add it to an area that you want to relax and unwind in. Add green hues to your bedroom and home office to reduce stress, aid focus and help soothe anxieties. Use as an accent or cover entire walls in your shade of choice. Elevate these toned-down greens with lush indoor plants in various sizes to enhance your oasis.
2. Pair with Natural Materials & Neutral Colours
Compliment soft green walls with beige, white and timber accents. Olive Sprig and Cool Current can work within contemporary and rustic spaces, making it a versatile choice that can add comfort to any room.
3. Add Green to Your Kitchen
Consider painting your kitchen cabinets and replacing your door hardware with brass handles. Greens will pair well with wooden kitchen accents and kitchen islands for a sophisticated design that will encourage fresh recipes and dinner parties.
4. Retile the Bathroom
If you’d like to avoid painting, incorporate 2022 colour trends in your bathroom or ensuite with a deep green backsplash behind the sink or add wall-to-ceiling tiles for a stunning effect. This look will work particularly well in a monochrome bathroom. Adding green to the bathroom can be an opportunity to refresh your tap hardware, vanity pulls and shower head in the process.
