The COLOR of the New Year

- —Megan O’Neill Melle

In a rare coincidenc­e, some of the biggest names in paint, including Benjamin Moore, SherwinWil­liams, PPG and Behr, all chose the same hue for their 2022 Color of the Year. This year, it’s all about green. “Warm, muted tones like olive, sage, moss and eucalyptus can be used as a base for other vibrant accents in your home—they’re nature’s neutral,” says Valerie Stafford, partner at Rumor Designs, the 2021 HGTV Designer of the Year winner, whose team chose green hues for custom cabinetry, trim and doors in this cabin getaway. In addition to paint, here are some more fun ways to go green. 1
