Sherwin-Williams announced Evergreen Fog SW 9130 , a color rooted in nature, as its 2022 Color of the Year. In this soft, organic shade, we find meaning, a place to heal and a lasting peace.
Sherwin-Williams 2022 Color of the Year
Evergreen Fog SW 9130
Evergreen Fog SW 9130 is a versatile and calming hue, a chameleon color of gorgeous green-meets-gray, with just a bit of blue. It’s a simple but sophisticated wash of beautiful, organic color for spaces that crave a subtle yet stunning statement shade.
Sue Wadden, director of color marketing at Sherwin-Williams, says she knew green was going to be an important color for 2022. But she and her team wanted to pick the perfect green for the Sherwin-Williams Color of the Year. “We didn’t want it to be too dark or something you’d necessarily relegate to a cabinet or a piece of furniture or an accent wall,” she says. “We wanted it to be a color you could put on all four walls — and have it look really beautiful.” Evergreen Fog SW 9130 (215-C4) stood out as the winning hue. “It’s not in your face,” Wadden says. “It’s a little more subtle, a little more recessive and a little more relatable.”
How to Use 2022 Color of the Year: Evergreen Fog
Evergreen Fog is a fairly flexible color but looks best when partnered with the right finishes, textures, and colors.
Evergreen Fog looks amazing with Shoji White SW 7042 (245-C4), Urbane Bronze SW 7048 (245-C7), Accessible Beige SW 7036 (249-C1), Über Umber SW 9107 (203-C7), Woven Wicker SW 9104 (203-C4), and Bakelite Gold SW 6368 (128-C4). All colors are from the Method palette of the Sherwin-Williams Colormix® Forecast 2022.
You should always sample paint color in the space you intend to use it before you start putting it on your walls. (We mail 8″ x 10″ paint swatches of our recommendations to our Virtual Color Consultation clients.)
Stone and Tile
Organic, natural stone and unfinished, raw surfaces have a more artisanal look that blends especially well with Evergreen Fog.
When it comes to wood finishes, Evergreen Fog is a natural match. Rough textured cuts and wood grains have a warm, effortlessly natural feel that blends beautifully with the 2022 Color of the Year.
A balanced mix of warmer metallics pair beautifully with Evergreen Fog. Brushed gold, tarnished silver, and matte black finishes are standouts.
Course, natural fabrics with rough surfaces add a tactile, yet somehow soft look — think tweeds and untreated yarns. These fabrics, along with organic materials and natural shapes, provide a beautiful complement.
