2022 Colors of the Year

Feeney's DesignRail® and ColorEasy™ lines bring this year’s top color to life.


What would the start of a new year be without the announcements of “The Color of the Year” and other trend reports predicting the coming year’s popular hues? In this respect, at least, 2022 is already like every other year — thank goodness.


This year we’re seeing an unprecedented number of green shades — and downright delightful names — indicating a desire for connection to growth and the natural world. All the colors are reassuring and energizing in their own way.


Below some of the most revered paint and color brands share their take on what’s hot for 2022. We’re bringing those colors to life with our picks for DesignRail® options in our ColorEasy™ line of powder-coated colors. Here’s to a cautiously optimistic and inspired start to the new year!

Behr: Breezeway


A relaxed and uplifting sea glass green expressing peace and tranquility for forward movement. A physical passageway to spiritual reemergence. From soft moments to adventure that awaits you, the sight of Breezeway will awaken your senses.


Looking at Behr’s color choice is like a breath of fresh sea air for the new year — crisp and calm, all at the same time.


Here is our DesignRail® railing in Bright White, with our Resin panel infill in Fossil Leaf, topped with a Wood Grain Top Rail powder-coated in Cherry.


Benjamin Moore: October Mist


Make room for creativity. Evoking the silver-green stem of a flower, October Mist creates a canvas for other colors - and your imagination - to blossom.


This sleek shade pairs nicely with warm hues and natural materials, as well as standard neutrals.


Looking to evoke October Mist in your next project? Here is our DesignRail® railing in Blue Steel with frosted glass panel infill, and an intermediate horizontal rail.


Glidden: Guacamole


Our 2022 Color of the Year is not only named after our fav food, but is also one of our fav greens to use on any wall or accent. This spirited yet soothing green brings organic energy to any space, which is needed because we all know you’ve probably killed at least three plants this year.


This cheery shade catches our attention, ties into the natural world, and says, “It’s okay if you don’t have a green thumb!” all at the same time.

HGTV + Sherwin-Williams: Aleutian


Now we know what matters most at home: beautiful, functional simplicity — a hardworking haven that nurtures our spirits and promotes our well-being. Create space for refuge with this perfectly balanced washed indigo that sets a restful tone.”


HGTV brings you Aleutian as part of their Soft Refuge Collection developed by Sherwin-Williams. Our favorite shade is the wonderfully warm, soft blue Aleutian. It conjures dreams of a sunny sky and the comfort of soft blue blankets — cozy and invigorating at the same time.

Pantone: Very Peri


Very Peri is created as a reaction to the strange and uncertain years that are behind us. Very Peri displays a carefree, confident, and daring curiosity that animates our creative spirit. After years of isolation, we have changed and we are rethinking the way we live. The digital world takes a bigger part in our lives and Pantone’s Very Peri illustrates the fusion of modern life and color trends from the digital world.


Once again, Pantone has chosen boldly with a wild lavender shade that promises to be the perfect pop of color or a dramatic backdrop for neutrals.


Let a pop of color take center stage in your next commercial project. Here is our DesignRail® railing in Dove Gray with intermediate horizontal rail and aluminum picket infill, topped with a Weathered Gray Wood Grain Top Rail.


Sherwin-Williams: Evergreen Fog


Consumers are seeking meaningful, reassuring, and healing colors. Organic, nature-inspired palettes like warm brown and cool green tones are essential to achieving a restorative state. In the coming years, color will continue to trend toward supporting physical and emotional wellbeing — a notion that ties in with the popularity of biophilic design.


This subdued, yet energizing shade makes us think of forested hills, fresh gardens, and grapevines — natural and nourishing. Our DesignRail® railing in Modern White, with aluminum picket infill, topped with a Wood Grain Top Rail powder-coated in Cherry blends in beautifully.
