PPG has unveiled its 2022 Color of the Year: Olive Sprig (PPG1125-4), an elegant, grounded, versatile grey-green. The color emulates the feeling of soothing aloe vera or a fragrant plant brightening any space with organic liveliness. It represents regrowth in a post-pandemic world, mimicking nature’s resiliency.


According to the company, lending itself to be paired with natural materials, Olive Sprig looks beautiful alongside unique architectural elements and furniture with curved forms to create a comfortable and grounded space. The color can help create a sanctuary in a bedroom, encourage focus in an office, and offer the neutral backdrop in a retail or restaurant.


Sophisticated grey-green represents regrowth in the post-pandemic time.

Resilience, the need for connection and inspiration from nature were recurring themes at PPG’s Global Color Forecasting Workshop. This annual event brings together more than 30 PPG global color stylists from the automotive, consumer electronics, aerospace, and home paint and stain industries.


Over the course of several days, the stylists analyze the runway, lifestyles, demographics, geographies, global events and cross-cultural societal inspirations to determine what colors will resonate and represent the PPG global color forecast, including the PPG 2022 Color of the Year.


Olive Sprig helps create a comfortable and grounded space.

Under the theme Horizon, which represents current state of hope, reflection and new beginnings in the post-pandemic era, PPG’s color experts identified three color stories that will resonate for homeowners, designers, architects, and facility and property maintenance managers in 2022:


Invaluable: The Invaluable palette culminates a rich library of cultural references to imagine its place in today’s world. Drawing Gatsby-esque inspiration from the past to create the palette of the present, this color story is not afraid to be bold. Grounded with rich hues like PPG’s Gooseberry, Castle Stone and Ancient Copper, the Invaluable palette adds depth and warmth to any space.


Introspective: The Introspective color story is for those that prioritize self-care and appreciate life’s simple pleasures. Create a serene and intimate space with colors like PPG’s Tea Time, Peace, Silver Service and Pine Whisper, which complement the Olive Sprig.


Inspired: These mood-boosting shades are to turn up the volume in any space and add an optimistic jolt of energy for spaces that need it most. PPG’s Cenote, Aloha and Lettuce Alone offer liveliness and mimic high-tech greens and blues are to turn heads. Warm hues like Paris Pink, Coral Silk and Crushed Pineapple are choices for the confident, social and adventurous painter. PPG’s Olive Sprig acts as a muted neutral in this palette.
