October 12, 2021

HGTV Home by Sherwin-Williams has revealed its trending 2022 Color Collection of the Year: the Softened Refuge Color Collection. 

Featuring 10 complementary colors that are influenced by global lifestyle trends, the paint brand’s Color Collection of the Year is composed of soft and simple tones inspired by peacefulness with a focus on balanced and meaningful colors that help facilitate tranquility. The collection also features a distinguished 2022 Color of the Year, Aleutian, a washed indigo that helps create a space for refuge.

"This palette is designed to simplify color selection for a perfectly coordinated home design. Color combinations within the Softened Refuge Color Collection can easily be used to craft spaces that help promote positive physical and mental wellbeing," said Ashley Banbury, senior color designer for HGTV Home by Sherwin-Williams. "The 2022 Color Collection of the Year exemplifies doing more with less, giving a sense of comfort and calmness with color."

The collection’s combination of softened tones keeps things easy and uncomplicated, leaving colors that feel balanced and meaningful. Aleutian, for example, is a cool blue that is grounded by the warmth of its red undertone, bridging the gap between the warm and cool tones. The shade is the foundation of the Color Collection of the Year and mingles well with all colors within Softened Refuge. 

The overall palette showcases how home design is fluid, flexible and approachable; simplicity and comfort are the key design actions in the home. The combination of softened tones has been thoughtfully curated by design experts to be mixed and matched in any combination for a cohesive look.
