PPG Paints Announces Its Color Of The Year 2022

Today, PPG is the first major paint company to introduce its 2022 Color of the Year: Olive Sprig (PPG1125-4) – an elegant, grounded, versatile and highly-adaptable grey-green. The color represents regrowth in a post-pandemic world, mimicking nature’s resiliency.

Sophisticated and soothing at once, this particular melange of gray and green tones symbolizes nature and rebirth. “As many of us know following a year of lockdown, the easiest way to shift your mindset is to change your environment,” says Amy Donato, PPG’s senior color marketing manager, in a press statement. “DIYers, property managers, designers, and architects are shifting away from the stark, neutral palettes of yesterday and opting for color in all forms. Call it rebellion, but we are certainly here for the resurgence of optimistic colors to guide us into a new era of home design.” Reminiscent of a soothing aloe vera plant or velvety sage leaves, the gray-green color was chosen to represent regrowth and the resiliency of nature as we adapt to new ways of living post-pandemic. The lush mid-tone feels familiar and grounding, and it’s versatile enough to be used as a livelier alternative to traditional neutrals. Olive Sprig is a relaxed and will brighten any space with organic liveliness. A versatile color that lives well inside or outside, Olive Sprig blends in with nearly any environment.

A more neutral shade of green, Olive Sprig has the ability to liven up any interior with an organic appeal and charm. While highly-adaptable to most environment, the standout shade pairs particularly well with wood tones often seen in home bars or on kitchen cabinetry.
