With a breath of fresh air and a healthy dose of optimism, Behr Paint has announced its 2022 Color of the Year to be Breezeway. The shade is “inspired by the earth’s beauty and mimics naturally stunning sea glass found on the shore of salty beaches,” says the brand.

Described as a tranquil, silvery green tone with cool undertones, Breezeway is “an approachable but noticeable color.” The much-loved paint brand hopes that this hue will lead us into the new year not only by evoking “feelings of coolness and peace,” but also by “representing a desire to move forward and discover newfound passions." As a true transition tone, Breezeway is a part of Behr’s wider 2022 Color Trends Palette, full of shades that will “[lead] you from one place to the next.”

We look forward to a color that welcomes a hopeful sense of renewal, restoration, and healing.”
