Sherwin-Williams has revealed its “Color of the Year” for 2022,—Evergreen Fog – a tranquil gray-green hue that takes inspiration from nature. Evergreen Fog SW 9130 is a versatile and calming hue, a chameleon color of gorgeous green-meets-gray, with just a bit of blue. It’s a simple but sophisticated wash of beautiful, organic color for spaces that crave a subtle yet stunning.
The paint color was selected by the company’s global color and design team, which reportedly analyzed an assortment of trending colors. According to a press release from Sherwin-Williams, Evergreen Fog was the leading color in its annual Colormix Forecast.
“Evergreen Fog is a sophisticated wash of color for spaces that crave a subtle yet stunning statement shade,” said Sherwin-Williams’ Director of Color Marketing Sue Wadden, in a statement. “Evergreen Fog inspires us to begin again and is a great choice for modern interiors and exteriors.” Evergreen Fog could be a fit for spaces that need a “regenerative touch,” including homes, hotel rooms, restaurants and office space.
The hybrid color allegedly pairs well with natural textures and textiles, deep black shades and metals like champagne gold or warm brass, according to the more than century–old paint company.
Evergreen Fog is Sherwin-Williams’ 12th Color of the Year and is the third time a green or gray color has earned the honor.

The shade also has a direct connection to the state of the world, as we strive, little by little, to define our collective “new normal” in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic; in some ways, it signals that the “fog” is lifting. “From a color psychology standpoint,” notes Wadden, “green is the color of nature, revitalization, and growth. It is naturally emblematic of newness.” The brand’s Color of the Year for 2021, Urbane Bronze, created a sense of sanctuary and security at a time when we needed it. Evergreen Fog continues this storyline. “It signals growth, emergence, and new beginnings. The hue is not overly verdant. It’s a little softer and delicate,” adds Wadden. “If you think of a seedling emerging, it doesn’t come out intense—it’s subtle. Evergreen Fog helps us to begin again.”
