Benjamin Moore has announced its Color of the Year 2022 —October Mist 1495, a muted sage tone—as well as a corresponding Color Trends 2022 palette, which consists of 14 paint shades chosen based on a potential for synergy and experimentation.

The company compares October Mist and its projected use with the “green stem of a flower” and how it serves to anchor and complement surrounding colors. The accompanying palette offers opportunities to combine an October Mist base with a primary, pale, or botanical complementary shade.

“As the spaces in our homes continue to evolve, we uncover more opportunities to express our individuality and leverage the power of color to design environments that serve different functions and styles,” says Andrea Magno, Benjamin Moore’s director of color marketing and development. “October Mist 1495 and the corresponding Color Trends 2022 palette reflects an effortless harmony of colors, while inspiring unique combinations for any paint project.”
