Joa Studholme, who consults on design projects and curates Farrow & Ball's color range, says the five-color palette embodies a distinctly human element. "There is something inherently human in the colors that we are attracted to for 2022 as well as in the way we use them."
So, which hues rule? Babouche, a bright, golden yellow; School House White, a soft white; Breakfast Room Green, a cheerful sage; Stone Blue, a dusty, saturated blue; and Incarnadine, a deep crimson, all make this coming year's list.
They also have something in common: Joa predicts hues that hearken back to a simpler time, embodying "the modest character of the world of folk and craft," will rise in popularity.
The five choices, she says "extol the virtues of a simple life and can be used in any combination and in any room. They are an eclectic mix of the pure and the humble that evokes the warmth and harmony of a more innocent age while celebrating life today. Function goes hand in hand with ornament, using colors and finishes in unusual ways to celebrate the principles of utility, kindness and honesty."
Happily, the paint brand predicts that, next year, consumers will "relish brighter colors," indicative of "a return to normality."
