A New Take on Neutral Tones

It’s time for new beginnings, so why not start off the year by adding a fresh accent wall in the living room or giving your bedroom a sleek, stylish new look with Evergreen Fog, Sherwin-Williams’ 2022 Color of the Year? “The gray-green Fog is a sophisticated wash of color for spaces that crave a subtle yet stunning statement shade,” says Sue Wadden, director of color marketing at Sherwin-Williams. “Evergreen Fog inspires us to start again.”

Sherwin-Williams chose Evergreen Fog to usher in a new era of nostalgic mid-tones, following years of cool neutral and bold jewel tones. Plus, it’s easy to use in any part of the home. “The familiar, comfortable nature of Evergreen Fog shines as a reassuring backdrop and freshens up any space,” Wadden says.

Because the color is so versatile, it works in a variety of spaces and design styles, including art deco, organic modern and postmodernism, says Wadden. She recommends pairing Evergreen Fog with organic neutrals such as Shoji White, Accessible Beige and Woven Wicker, and luxurious hues such as Urbane Bronze, Über Umber and Bakelite Gold. You can also add a little gleam with champagne gold or warm brass metals and use a mix of natural-looking textiles to create depth and texture.
