A pale sage wall with sofa and tree/Photography: Benjamin Moore/A pale sage—October Mist 1495—is Benjamin Moore's Color of the Year for 2022.

Green is having a moment! A pale sage is this year's Color of the Year for paint brand Benjamin Moore. October Mist 1495, which the brand calls "a gently shaded sage that quietly anchors as it creates a canvas for self-expression," was announced this week as the COTY of 2022. Sherwin-Williams's color of the year for 2022 is a shade of green, Evergreen Fog, and Farrow & Ball's recent trends palette also included a sage color. 

A pale sage wall with sofa and tree/Photography: Benjamin Moore/Benjamin Moore's October Mist 1495, seen here, joins 14 other colors in the brand's 2022 palette.

October Mist joins a 14-paint selection—called Color Trends, and spanning a range of paints including Mysterious, Hint of Violet, Morning Dew, High Park, Collector's Item, Venetian Portico, Wild Flower, Pale Moon, Steam, Fernwood Green, Quiet Moments, Natural Linen, and Gloucester Shade—in Benjamin Moore's palette for 2022. 

"As the spaces in our homes continue to evolve, we uncover more opportunities to express our individuality and leverage the power of color to design environments that serve different functions and styles," says Andrea Magno, the brand's Director of Color Marketing & Development. "October Mist 1495 and the corresponding Color Trends 2022 palette reflects an effortless harmony of colors, while inspiring unique combinations for any paint project.”
