5 Trending Paint Colors for 2022

Choosing a color scheme that matches your home, deciding on a finish, and considering natural light can be an overwhelming process. 

Whether you are trying to achieve a bright and airy or warm and cozy space, the right hue can help you accomplish your vision. Our color expert has chosen five colors that are trending right now to help get you started.


Alabaster (SW7008)

This hue has been a fan favorite since it was the color of the year in 2016. 

Its versatility to be paired with other calming neutrals, or ability to assist brighter shades, makes it an easy choice for just about any part of your home’s interior or exterior. 

Tap into its tranquil, meditative properties by sweeping it across your bedroom or nursery. Use it to join transitional and traditional styles by matching it with blushes or grays. Or, use it alongside darker hues to create a balanced contrast for your bathroom or office.


Coastal Plain (SW6192)

Utilizing muted colors like this is an easy way to incorporate color into your home without overwhelming it.

This muted green is delicate enough to be used on your home’s interior trim and doors and forward enough to use as a subtle, bold color in your bathroom or dining room. 

This color compliments grays, creams, and most other refined earth tones. 


Black Fox (SW7020)

Don’t let the name fool you; while this deep, saturated shade is named ‘black,’ the rich brown undertones of this color make it more adaptable for all your interior and exterior spaces.

Brown undertones tend to read more warm and elegant. Deep colors like this one appeal best to homeowners trying to achieve a more modern look.  

This hue is an excellent choice as an interior or exterior trim color when paired with lighter shades. Use it as the body of your home’s exterior when paired with a darker, more true black trim color. 


Iron Ore (SW7069)

This is the color for you if you are looking for a bold statement. Most of the time, a true black appears too stark. This charcoal color can read as a true black but is soft enough to pair with other neutrals to achieve a natural feel.

This color is often used as a home’s exterior trim color when paired with lighter hues, or the primary paint color when paired with other natural elements such as wood and soft landscapes.

The depth of this color choice makes it a front runner for an accent wall on your home’s interior to create a dramatic focal point. 


Repose Gray (SW7015)

The perfect ‘greige’ does exist! This is an ideal neutral for virtually any decor style. 

Have you ever painted a room gray only to notice that it has a purple or blue hue? Not to fear, this shade has a taupe base that eliminates that issue. 

You can use this color anywhere, and it has been a popular choice as the primary color for a home’s exterior and interior alike. Wherever you put it and however you use it, you will find it leaves a crisp and clean space. 

Our color expert, Toska, will help you achieve whatever aesthetic you are dreaming of for your home’s interior or exterior. She will walk you through a color consult to take the guesswork out of finding a color you are sure to love and one that compliments your home.

“I can’t say enough great things about Chad and his crew. They were punctual throughout the entire project and very attentive to detail. This is the first time I’ve hired a painter and they far exceeded my expectations.”

We used Chad for an insurance claim to repaint our house after we received hail damage. Our house had been painted just 2 years prior when we purchased it and moved in but the quality of the previous painter was sub par at with another opportunity to have our house painted, I wanted to ensure that it was done right. Chad and his crew delivered just that and completely blew my expectations out of the water. To say that they did an incredible job isn't saying enough, the quality that we received was as if Chad was painting his own home. No exterior surface was left untouched and they used high grade products to do the job right. The communication was incredible and if available, he always answered or called me right back after leaving a message. He was fast acting on the paperwork I needed to complete my insurance claim and even personally delivered the signed documents that I required. He walked me through all the steps of his painting process and even gave me confidence that I was going with the right company before the work even started. I was blown away with the finished product and before calling the job complete, we walked around my entire home, with him encouraging me to point out any imperfections that I saw so that his crew could address them on the spot ensuring that I was pleased....but needless to say, I found NONE! Chad will be my first an only call for any future painting projects and he should be yours too!
