Johnstone’s 2022 Colour of the Year
Johnstone’s has announced its 2022 Colour of the Year: Olive Sprig. It is described as “a grounded, versatile and highly-adaptable grey-green, that represents optimism in a post-pandemic world, building on nature’s resilience”.
Says Donna Taylor, PPG colour expert, Johnstone’s Trade. “People are growing tired of the stark, neutral palettes of yesterday and opting for colour in all forms; optimistic colours to guide us into a new era of home and commercial design.”
Lending itself to be paired with natural materials, Olive Sprig looks effective alongside unique architectural elements and furniture with curved forms to create a comfortable and grounded space. The colour can help create a sanctuary in a bedroom or an office, and pairs with brass accents and wood tones on lower cabinets or other building features.
Resilience, the need for connection and inspiration from nature were recurring themes at PPG’s Global Colour Forecasting Workshop. This annual event brings together more than 30 PPG global colour stylists from the automotive, consumer electronics, aerospace, and home paint and stain industries. Over the course of several days, the stylists analyse the trends in lifestyles, demographics, geographies, global events and cross-cultural societal inspirations to determine what colours will resonate and represent the PPG global colour forecast, including the Voice of Colour 2022 Colour of the Year.
