Wall-colour trends: how to paint the home in 2022

For me colours are living beings, highly evolved individuals that integrate with us and with the whole world. Colours are the true inhabitants of space

(Yves Klein)


Never before in history has colour been so closely intertwined with human life. It gives us the psychological drive we need to find our way out of difficult circumstances and charges us with the energy for the future.

Each colour is laden with meaning and there is always a shade we can identify with, after which it is easy enough to use its symbolism in order to express ourselves and narrate our own particular situation and lifestyle.


Part of the beauty of colour lies in the fact that we can bring together different shades, allowing them to meld, commingle and breathe life into new hues which in turn channel fresh sensations and trigger other perceptions.

2022 Pantone wall colour: it's the year of VERY PERI – 17-3938

The mixture that PANTONE will use to create new colours for house walls in 2022 stems from a blending of two primary colours and their nuances:

• BLUE: this is an extremely deep colour which represents truth, loyalty, steadfastness and perseverance. It is the colour of intellect. It comes in a range of tones and symbolises calmness, peacefulness, emotional stability and harmony
• RED: a primary colour which stands for energy, excitement and the here and now. Red is the colour of love and desire; it stirs up feelings of strength, warmth and protection.

The PANTONE COLOUR INSTITUTE decided to infuse a particular shade of blue with a vivifying violet-red undertone to highlight the expansive possibilities that lay before each one of us in the new year.

So, VERY PERI – 17-3938 will be leading the dance for fashionable wall colour in 2022. An energising periwinkle blue with vitalising violet-red undertones that fuses the qualities of blue (loyalty and constancy) with all the energy and excitement of red.

New wall-colour trends: light indigo or powder blue

An almost impalpable pastel hue, light indigo refreshes settings with a “cool soothing” touch.

Its nature requires it to be enhanced by contrasting colours, such as rust which gives it distinctive radiance, or otherwise white for a more understated collected style.

When combined with other finishing materials (for instance, wood, fabric or ceramic), it will bring their beauty to the fore without losing its own individuality.

Flesh pink is one of the home-wall-colour fashion trends for 2022

Drawing on the power of red yet tempered by the purity of white, it lends itself to many other colours, including darker ones such as grey. When matched to dark stone, it imbues settings with unforgettable allure.

White: an ageless aesthetic for wall colour

Absence of colour or a combination of all the colours of the rainbow... this shade of shades embodies purity, simplicity and extraordinary elegance. No interior-design project would have sense without white. It is the keystone of almost all artistic undertakings, enhancing other shades and adding definition to any combination.

In the 2022 wall-colour trends, it comes in an unusual pearly version.

Olive green is another trending colour for wall decoration in 2022

Olive green will be a scene stealer in 2022 as far as colour in interior design is concerned. A colour that is truly suggestive of nature and forms a perfect foil to VERY PERI, it will bring the best out of both shades and contribute to the creation of fashion-forward vibrant environments.
