Drum roll, please! Behr Paint has announced its official Color of the Year for 2022, and you’re definitely going to want to incorporate it in your own home. According to the popular paint brand, Breezeway is a “silvery green shade with cool undertones.” The versatile color is inspired by the beauty of the earth, and it’s similar to the look of a dreamy pastel sea glass you might find on a salty beach.
“We’ve spent more time in our home than ever before, so when we were tasked with deciding on the 2022 Color of the Year, we wanted something that excited us and brought on a sense of renewal and restoration for the adventures ahead,” Erika Woelfel, the vice president of color and creative services at Behr Paint Company, tells House Beautiful. “Breezeway represents the intention to move forward, bringing you from one place to another.”
Plus, it’s extremely versatile: Breezeway can be the “star color” of your bedroom, living room, or hallways, as well as doors, cabinetry, and furniture, says Woelfel. “It pairs exceptionally well with colors like creamy white, taupe, softened black, nuanced pink and terra cotta red,” she explains.
Breezeway is now available for purchase at Home Depot stores nationwide as part of the Behr Dynasty line—meaning it’s a four-in-one product that can easily be used by everyone from DIYers to professional painters to design aficionados. Best of all, it boasts the most stain-repellent, scuff-resistant, and fast-drying ingredients, all in one can!
Behr has also announced 20 colors selected for its new Color Trends palette, including hues like Whisper White and Perfect Penny, an earthy orange-red. Naturally, the palette colors all complement Breezeway, meaning selecting a new color scheme just got a whole lot easier.
Best of all, to celebrate the 2022 Color of the Year and Color Trends Palette, Behr is offering up a big gift: The company will award one grand prize winner with $50,000 to bring a dream of theirs to life, whether that be starting a new business or traveling the world. Plus, five first prize winners will each receive a $1,000 gift card to Home Depot. You can enter the Color in Motion Sweepstakes here, by 11:59 P.M. PST on September 28, 2021.
