Wattyl’s colour forecast for 2022, presents ‘the new normal’, comprised of more than half brand new colours. The collection includes 16 natural and feel-good colours, within four distinct palettes, that aim to reflect our collective desires to instil a sense of calm and serenity within our homes.
Return to simplicity
Serene pale blue hues work to perfectly balance whites, off-whites and soft beige tones to create a sense of simplicity and peace. When paired with subtle, tactile surfaces and textures you can create an atmosphere of peace and relaxation, where you can slow down and live in the moment.
Warm neutrals in ivory, greiges and browns create the perfect cocooning colour palette. When paired with lush foliage, handcrafted local objects, art and sculpted feature walls, they welcome us into soothing spaces of comfort and beauty.
Bolder contrast colours reflect strength and optimism, prompting a desire to reconnect, share and celebrate resilience. New life and energy can be introduced into a space by choosing uplifting yellow-based colours contrasted with reassuring blue and grey tones.
Our desire for wellness and connection to the natural environment is the strongest trend influence for 2022. The layering of several greens and grey-greens paired with textured walls, timber and stone, lots of foliage and nourishing daylight creates a palette that will not only satisfy your desire for nature but also blur the lines between indoor and outdoor living.
Wattyl is available nationally at Wattyl Paint Centres, selected Mitre 10 stores, Home Timber Hardware and Crowies Paints.
