It’s always interesting to see what paint companies choose as their color of the year. For 2022, Benjamin Moore has chosen October Mist 1495, a soft and earthy shade of green — a neutral that can add a bit of calm to your home’s interior. The nice thing about this particular color is that it easily adapts to different styles and environments. This means it serves as a great foundation for integrating other colors within the space and offers you a lot of flexibility when it comes to decor.
As beautiful as this color is, it’s important to take a close look at the supporting palette they chose as well. After all, Benjamin Moore states that they “carefully curate a Color Trends palette that balances modern-day relevance with long-lasting appeal.” Which is exactly what they did. The result is an incredibly beautiful family of colors that work just as well together as they do on their own.
Using October Mist In Your Home
October Mist is all about balance and restoration, which makes it an ideal choice for spaces that embody that type of vibe — a bedroom, bathroom, living room, and even a home office are rooms that can benefit from a color that reduces stress and encourages feelings of peace. With that said, it’s a color that works well in any kitchen or dining room as it also exudes a sense of harmony and togetherness.
Seriously, this color is incredibly neutral so don’t hesitate to use it on the walls of your home. From there, lay down a gorgeous area rug and use it to build a palette that includes a few other colors you truly enjoy surrounding yourself with.
It looks gorgeous on upholstery
This is a fantastic color for upholstery, especially if you’re wanting to venture away from neutrals like gray, cream, or beige. And, once you take into consideration the Benjamin Moore supporting color trend palette, it’s easy to see that there are a lot of color options when it comes to picking out secondary colors and patterns.
Take our M-Vella fabric in the shade spring, for example. It’s a beautiful option for upholstery, drapery, and even bedding. Can’t you just imagine how lovely an earthy green sofa would look in your home, especially when it’s paired with accent pillows covered in unique fabric patterns? Some of our standout favorites for pairing with this hue include our Humors, Pk-Amazon, and Squeez.
One of the easiest ways to introduce a new color is through accent pieces and accessories. October Mist is the perfect example of a color that can really shine when used on an accent piece, such as a chest of drawers, entryway table, or kitchen island. Accessories in this silvery-green shade, or, an accessory that contains a combination of their color choices can also really make an impact within the space.
