Winter 2022 Paint Colors

Ochre Office
Ring in the new year with a fresh coat of paint. For 2022, we chose colors that bring energy into any room, yet still feel grounded and livable. Whether your aesthetic leans towards vibrant hues or timeless neutrals, these winter paint colors make it easy to welcome the new year in style.

Please be aware that color may vary due to various light conditions, finish, and other factors. It’s always a great idea to test a paint sample on your wall first.

Winter Paint Colors: Palisades Park

Palisades Park #439 Benjamin Moore

This shade of green is just serene. In the bedroom above, we made monochromatic magic by layering tons of green patterns and textures. For an extra breath of life, try botanical bedding and wall art to encourage wishful thinking of spring.

Winter Paint Colors: Santorini Blue

Santorini Blue #1634 Benjamin Moore

Beat the winter blues with this gorgeous paint color. It’s the perfect shade of blue to keep things feeling fresh, yet classic. In this living room, we mixed furniture with light and dark wood tones and sprinkled in pieces with varying metallic finishes.

Seattle Mist #1535 Benjamin Moore

Neutral lovers rejoice. As the name suggests, this warm gray is soft, airy, and a perfect blank canvas for any room in the house. Create an elegant, tonal look or go bold with a black mirror or chair for stunning visual contrast.

Winter 2022 Paint colors: Davinci's Canvas

Da Vinci’s Canvas #208 Benjamin Moore

Say goodbye to seasonal depression. Regardless of the weather outside, you’ll always have sunshine inside with this shade. If you’re nervous about painting a bold color, incorporate black and white shelving, drapery, and pillows to keep things balanced.

    Seems to me this website isn’t very helpful at all because you’re only listing a handful of colors and there’s so many more colors in The catalogs. How hard can it be to notate all the colors without images and just list them and give the color name and the page? By the way I work at a paint store and it’s impossible to match up photos in magazines. I truly wish you would update this website to be useful instead of four or five colors thank you, Steve

      Hi Steve,

      Thank you for expressing your concerns. We try our best each season to share a few of the paint swatches from the catalog. Unfortunately, there are times when we don’t know any information regarding the colors, as they’re generic photography sets. We send out multiple catalogs each season with changing images and page numbers, so we only list the color name associated with the images. In cases where we don’t know the colors, we understand that taking the image to a paint store might not find you the exact color, but doing so could yield similar color results. This blog is meant to be a source of inspiration and tips, and I encourage you to explore some of our other posts.

      Best,
      Mallory

    What paint color is used in the Hutton Office photo in the latest catalog? It says Yellow Ochre but Benjamin Moore doesn’t make that color. Others have asked the same question above. Please advise.

      Hi Angie,

      The Hutton office features Benjamin Moore’s Da Vinci’s Canvas 208. It’s the same color as the closet in the blog post, but sometimes paint colors can look a little different depending on the light.

    Could you please provide the color of the office on p. 9 of the Feb. 2022 catalogue? The text above the picture says “our new favorite wall color – yellow ochre.” But that paint color name is not listed on the Benjamin Moore website.
    It looks like a deep mustard / gold.
    I’d also like to know the deep blue color on pps. 62, 68 and 69. Or is that wallpaper?
    Thank you!

      Hi Deborah,

      The specific yellow ochre color of the Hutton office is Benjamin Moore’s Da Vinci’s Canvas 208. As far as the blue on pages 62, 68, and 69, that is our Thin Lines wallpaper in navy.

    Hi – what is the yellow paint color used in the office? Ballard Design’s catalog description refers readers to this color blog to get the color, but out of all the photos shown, the photo used to get us here is the only one that doesn’t have the paint color listed. Can you share it?
    Thank you!
