Sherwin-Williams has named its “Color of the Year” for 2022, and this time it’s Evergreen Fog – a tranquil gray-green hue that takes inspiration from nature.
The paint color was selected by the company’s global color and design team, which reportedly analyzed an assortment of trending colors. According to a press release from Sherwin-Williams, Evergreen Fog was the leading color in its annual Colormix Forecast.

“Evergreen Fog is a sophisticated wash of color for spaces that crave a subtle yet stunning statement shade,” said Sherwin-Williams’ Director of Color Marketing Sue Wadden, in a statement. “Evergreen Fog inspires us to begin again and is a great choice for modern interiors and exteriors.”
She went on to say that Evergreen Fog could be a fit for spaces that need a “regenerative touch,” including homes, hotel rooms, restaurants and office space.
