Hot Paint Colours, and what to do with my old paint?

Spring is a time for cleaning and renovations—and what better way to spruce up your space than by choosing a fresh new paint colour for 2022. This season, these paint colours are trending for residential properties across BC.

Earthy and organic shades

In 2022, it’s all about nature and bringing the outdoors indoors. Green tones in shades of sage, evergreen, emerald, and spearmint are popular in the living room and dining room.

Dark and moody tones

Darker colours like charcoal grey, black, and midnight blues are ideal for kitchen and bathrooms. They are a stunning offset to stainless steel appliances and white bathroom fixtures. This season, stormy grey is a popular paint colour for kitchen cabinets.

Neutral palette

With many people’s stress levels at an all-time high, decorators are choosing to paint rooms in a calming neutral palette. Neutral palettes take the focus away from the walls and let furniture and décor items shine. Popular neutral shades include ivory linen, soft tan, beige, light gray, and white canvas.

Pop of colour

One of the best parts of spring is seeing the colourful birds and blossoms returning to our semi-arid landscape. This season, decorators are refreshing homes with bright and bold shades that add a splash of colour to the living space. Popular shades include robin’s egg blue, buttercup yellow, and candy floss pink.
