Johnstone's Colour of the Year 2022
PPG announced their colour forecast for 2022 Olive Sprig. Olive Sprig is a relaxed, but enticing green that emulates the feeling of soothing aloe vera or a fragrant plant – brightening any space with organic liveliness. A versatile colour that lives well inside or outside, Olive Sprig blends in with nearly any environment.
PPG’s colour experts identified three colour stories that will resonate for homeowners, designers, architects and facility and property maintenance managers in 2022:
Invaluable: The Invaluable palette culminates a rich library of cultural references to imagine its perfect place in today’s world. Drawing Gatsby-esque inspiration from the past to create the go-to glamourous palette of the present, this colour story is not afraid to be bold. Grounded with rich hues like PPG’s Gooseberry, Castle Stone and Ancient Copper, the Invaluable palette adds depth and warmth to any space. Pair these colours with rich, dark woods and brass accents to really turn up the drama – especially in the home, restaurants or hotels.
Introspective: The Introspective colour story is for those that prioritise self-care and appreciate life’s simple pleasures. Create a serene and intimate space with colours like PPG’s Tea Time, Peace, Silver Service and Pine Whisper, which complement the soothing comfort of Olive Sprig. These hues are perfect for the private yet soulful consumer looking to create an ethereal bedroom retreat, a thoughtful office space, or add a hint of colour to an otherwise neutral-toned kitchen.
Inspired: Those drawn to the Inspired colour palette cannot be pinned down! These mood-boosting shades are sure to turn up the volume in any space and add an optimistic jolt of energy for spaces that need it most – like a statement-making front door, a unique retail environment, or an inspiring child’s playroom. PPG’s Cenote, Aloha and Lettuce Alone offer liveliness and mimic high-tech greens and blues that are sure to turn heads. Warm hues like Paris Pink, Coral Silk and Crushed Pineapple are perfect picks for the confident, social and adventurous painter who wants to spread joy, embrace change and break free from minimalist designs of years past. PPG’s Olive Sprig acts as a muted neutral in this palette to ground the bolder, brighter colour counterparts.
