Benjamin Moore COTY 2022: October Mist | Southwestern Paint Co.

October 13, 2021 1 min read

Make room for creativity with October Mist 1495, Benjamin Moore’s Color of the Year for 2022.

A gently-shaded sage that feels right at home in both traditional or modern designs, October Mist anchors a bedroom, bathroom or dining room and breathes new life into architectural features, while its connective nature make it suitable for transitional spaces like the hallway or a second-story staircase.

This botanical beauty evokes the silvery-green stem of a flower, and gives root to personal style too. 

“People are looking for a means of self-expression. There’s this craving for individuality,” explains Andrea Magno, Benjamin Moore Director of Color Marketing and Development. “We’re at this point in time where we’re looking for stability and a feeling of being rooted. But at the same time we want an escape; we’re ready to express ourselves.”

October Mist is part of the Color Trends 2022 palette, a collection that reflects the positivity we want to see and feel in the colors we choose to surround ourselves with. Learn more about the 2022 Color Trends Palette and the Color of the Year here!
