Behr Paint Co. announced its 2022 Color of the Year, Breezeway MQ3-21. The silvery green shade with cool undertones is inspired by the earth’s beauty and mimics sea glass found on salty beaches.

“A new year brings the opportunity to embrace a sense of renewal and pursue untapped passions,” says Erika Woelfel, vice president of color and creative services at Behr Paint Co. “Whether it’s lacing up our hiking boots or breaking out the gardening tools, Breezeway inspires us to fully embrace the hobbies or adventures, both near and far, that excite us. We look forward to a color that welcomes a hopeful sense of renewal, restoration, and healing.”

Designers will enjoy Breezeway’s versatility, moving easily from casual to coastal and modern to vintage styling. The peaceful hue “awakens the spirit of the home without overpowering the space,” and pairs with many other colors in the Behr 2022 Color Trends palette, including the timelessness of Whisper White HDC-MD-08 and the bold terracotta red of Perfect Penny S180-6.


In addition to the brand’s Color of the Year announcement, the company launched a new product, Behr Dynasty. The four-in-one paint offers DIYers, painters, and design professionals a product that can deliver beautiful and durable results. According to the manufacturer, it’s the most stain-repellent, scuff-resistant, fast-drying, one-coat coverage paint within the Behr product portfolio.

“Behr Dynasty is the result of our relentless drive to improve the painting experience, providing our most advanced paint ever with the rich color of Behr paints,” said Jodi Allen, global chief marketing officer at Behr Paint Co. “We are confident this new formula will provide everything paint professionals, designers, and DIYers want in both performance and color.”

Breezeway, the 2022 Color Trends Palette, and Behr Dynasty are available now, exclusively at The Home Depot stores nationwide.
