This year has seen an overwhelming trend towards green color palettes. Most major paint brands opted for a shade of green as their “color of the year” for 2022. This trend stems from an overall theme of incorporating nature and natural elements into the home.
In Fixr.com’s recent Paint & Color Trends 2022 report, top experts shared what else would stand out as the top home decor color trends in 2022. Here we share some of their insights.
When asked which interior color palettes would prove most popular among homeowners this year, 66% of design industry professionals said warm neutral colors. These hues allow for homeowners to create a cozier and more welcoming feel. This is a step away from cold neutrals which were predicted to be most popular in 2020. This marks the continued shift away from gray tones, which only 5% believed would be popular this year.
Note: Warm neutrals and earth tones are especially big in kitchens this year.

In complete contrast to lighter, bolder, and biophilic design elements, front door color bucks the trend. This is because front doors work as a way to complement the home’s overall color and architecture. 56% of design professionals believe that black is the best way to achieve this. White is the most popular siding color, and black functions as a dramatic, contrasting focal point. It also works well with almost all siding colors, hence its popularity.
