Sherwin-Williams welcomes a fresh start with its 2022 Color of the Year Evergreen Fog SW 9130, a nourishing and sophisticated gray-green, for its 12th official Color of the Year.

Led by director of color marketing Sue Wadden, the Sherwin-Williams color and design team researches and identifies trends that influence the way people interact with color. From those findings, the team turns emerging themes into the annual Colormix Forecast and selects the Color of the Year from the chosen color predictions.

“Evergreen Fog is a sophisticated wash of color for spaces that crave a subtle yet stunning statement shade,” says Wadden. “Evergreen Fog inspires us to begin again and is a great choice for modern interiors and exteriors.”

The soothing, subtle shade is easy to use in every part of the home and suits a variety of spaces, substrates, and design styles, including art deco, modern organic, and postmodernism, reports the company.

“The familiar, comfortable nature of Evergreen Fog shines as a reassuring backdrop and freshens up any space,” continues Wadden. “Create depth and texture with a mix of natural-looking textiles. Add a little gleam with a fusion of metals—champagne gold, warm brass, or inky black.”

The hue is part of the Method palette in the Sherwin-Williams 2022 Colormix Forecast, which embraces creativity, intention, and discovery. Wadden recommends pairing the hue with organic neutrals such as Shoji White SW 7042, Accessible Beige SW 7036, and Woven Wicker SW 9104, and tonal luxurious hues such as Urbane Bronze SW 7048, Über Umber SW 9107, and Bakelite Gold SW 6368.

Evergreen Fog is available at Sherwin-Williams stores nationwide and is available to order online for in-store or curbside pickup.
