At Regalway Homes, we like to stay on top of trends in real estate, especially if they can help clients looking to invest in realty. If a trend can help our clients make more money on a sale or rental, we're all over it! So, here are the colour trends of 2022.
It's well known that colour helps people to feel a certain way. Red provokes strong feelings of action, such as anger, passion, and power, while blue can make people feel cool, calm, and even sad. So, the colours you choose to decorate your home can change the feelings of the home and even the interactions that happen there.
Let’s take a look at some of the recommended colours for 2022.
Pantone’s Very Peri
Every year Pantone releases its colour of the year. This colour is chosen by the Pantone team based on the overall hope for the upcoming year. The colour of 2022 is called Very Peri. According to Pantone, this colour will help us "embrace this altered landscape of possibilities." (Pantone.com)
The very peri hue is a mix of purple and blue, invoking creativity, curiosity and confidence. While these emotions are good omens for home buyers or renters, the hue is very bold as a paint colour.
According to House Beautiful, very peri pairs well with a range of other colours, but our favourite way to use purple (especially such a bold hue) is by using shades of the same colour.
Using a light lilac on the walls with very peri curtains or cushions allows the room to be a calm place with pops of colour that can spark creativity without feeling overwhelming.

Paint company Behr recommends many different colours for 2022, but their colour of the year is Breezeway, “a soft sea glass green.” The colour is meant to invoke feelings of confidence and vitality, which is something we could all use after the last two years.
Sherwin Williams’ Evergreen Fog
Sherwin Williams chose a similar colour to Behr, but with a darker tone. The colour is rustic and earthy, but according to Sherwin Williams, “Soothing, subtle, and a perfect shade to freshen up any space.”
The greener tones invoke outdoors which makes sense given how much time we’ve spent outdoors over the past two years. Green is invigorating and refreshing, but it’s not for everyone. Is it for you?
