The appeal behind green is clear. This hue is bold enough to make a statement without being overpowering – and that’s without mentioning its connection to biophilia. This color is expected to reign supreme throughout 2022 – but one exact shade is expected to come out on top.
The tone in question is Farrow & Ball’s Green Smoke – a dusty green-blue that is expected to sit at the pinnacle of color trends for several seasons ahead.
The announcement comes after a study* of search data explored which Farrow & Ball shades will be big news, and Green Smoke stole the crown. This color alone received 10,590 monthly searches, and the paint trend shows no signs of slowing down.
The most popular green Farrow & Ball shade
What happens when one of the most admired paint manufacturers meets the most popular shade of the year? You get Green Smoke – and two (almost) equally admired hues that are in demand as we approach the new year. These are the greens you need to know about.
Green Smoke is the shade of the moment – but this tone is certainly nothing new. Instead, the hue was sought after by interior designers in the late 19th century. So, it is perhaps unsurprising this old-age tone has (according to Farrow & Ball) an ‘irresistibly inviting deepness and weathered familiarity.’
Plus, while it is tempting to bring this color to the forefront of your living room paint ideas, the color powerhouse also experiments with Green Smoke in your exteriors – because fashionable first impressions begin here, naturally.
While Green Smoke is set to steal the headlines, Farrow & Ball’s Pigeon is by no means far behind. After receiving 9,630 searches in September 2021, this warm hue has emerged as the second most-sought after green – despite its blue-gray undertones. Farrow & Ball recommend using the shade in darker rooms, such as cloakrooms and studies, to give the space a natural boost.
When it comes to green room ideas, you could do far worse than invest in Mizzle. This cool tone is a lighter version of Pigeon – so it is unsurprisingly a close third. This stylish hue gives rooms a contented aura that will leave an impression throughout 2022 and beyond (because we expect these colors are going nowhere fast).
