Six Trending Interior Paint Colours for 2022

Colours resonate the different ways with different people. Some may love orange while others find it odd or dull. Some might prefer neutral light colors, while others prefer darker colours for their house as they are calm and soothe the mind.

  1. Babouche or Sunny Yellow

Brighter colours will be celebrated this year. Babouche is a colour from Farrow & Ball who said that the bright sunny yellow is perfect for embracing herald of normalcy. Although it is seen as bold, it is not tawdry or overpowering. This shade of yellow, named after Moroccan apparel worn by men, is described as “subdued sunshine”. Despite the bright hue it exudes, Babouche is perfect for wide space and bigger rooms.

  1. Very Peri

Being the Pantone of the year, Good Housekeeping listed Very Peri as one of the interior colours of the year. The paint colour exudes the unique depth and vision of the beloved blue family. The colours exhibit jovial presence, creativity, and inspirational expressions.

3, School House White

Muted, timeless, and comfortingly familiar; this is how Kayleigh described this shade of white. This is intended to look white on the painted areas. This colour evokes the colour of old schoolhouses. This colour also works well when combined with Babouche as it highlights the colour even more.

  1. October Mist

Benjamin Moore chose a subtle sage called October Mist as one of the colours for the year 2022. This colour encourages us to reveal our inner individuality and unearth the passion to design our home for our interests and style. October Mist gives a rustic countryside vibe when combined with sky blue or burnt earth red. This colour encourages recoupling with nature.

  1. Incarnadine

Incarnadine is a pinkish-red colour which is an accent between the Falu red of barns and raspberry hue. Incarnadine gives a comforting and warm ambiance. It works well for warm woodworks and rustic gold touches. It is best paired with a monochromatic palette or bright white shade.

  1. Stone Blue

Among the shades of blue, Farrow & Ball chose Stone Blue as one of the interior paint colours for 2022. Timeless and warm blue create a welcoming and classic ambiance to your house. This works well with living rooms and kitchens which often host high traffic. Paired with lighter tones, it creates a clean and modern feel.

We hired Earl and his crew to paint the baseboards & walls of our basement. He is very good at answering emails and texts. Also is punctual when meeting for quotes and doing the work. I specifically wanted our baseboards lacquered and NOT brush or roller painted. It cost more, but the results speak for themselves. The basement was left clean and the furniture well covered. Great work from this company. Would recommend

Recently Earl painted the exterior of our house. The structure was very challenging and needed an enormous amount of prep work. Earl and his crew showed up every day on time and went full tilt for 4 days to get all the prep and painting done. The paint was all brushed and rolled.They were very professional and it was obvious that they take pride in their work.I did have trouble deciding on the colours and after a couple of stressful months, I followed up with a colour consultant that Earl recommended. It was money well spent and we are very pleased with how it turned out.I would not hesitate to recommend Earl and his crew.
Earl and his team helped me dramatically improve the interior of a recently purchased 1960 Bungalow. They prepped and painted the main level completely (ceiling, walls, windows, door jams, etc.) and did some painting in basement as well. Easy to work with from the start to finish. Great job, on time, and at a reasonable price. I highly recommend Earl’s Paintworks. I will most likely be using their services again soon!

Earl is the best in the business! We hired Earl to paint the exterior of our 106 year-old heritage home that was in disrepair. Our house is a craftsman bungalow that required highly detailed workmanship. Because of the uniqueness of the house, and its heritage value, we were nervous to hire the job out to just anyone. We met with a number of companies and Earl's Paintworks stood tall above the rest. We loved that Earl was an owner/operator and knew after talking to him that he'd take great care with our beloved home. We weren't wrong! Earl and Jeremy were meticulous - sanding every nook and cranny to ensure a perfect finish that would stand the test of time. We wanted a tri-colour scheme to show off the home's craftsmanship, which required a lot of taping, cutting, and intricate work. Our neighbours would stop by to compliment Earl and Jeremy - blown away by the precision and quality of their work. Both my fiancé and I were sad to see them leave. Earl and Jeremy had become fast friends, always making time to stop and visit with us (despite putting in long days of hard labour). Couldn't recommend them enough! If you are looking for a painter, do yourself a favour, and stop here.

We recently hired Earl's Paintworks to repaint the entire interior of a newly-purchased home and could not be more pleased with the quality of the work and exceptional service provided from start to finish. We were on a very tight timeline & Earl (the owner) and Jeremy showed up ready to work 30 minutes after we took possession of the house. They put in long hours to finish the job in only 8.5 days, despite the fact that it was a massive project (3 storey house with over 30 windows/doors to paint around and some 20ft ceilings). The care they took to cover our hardwood floors, carpeting and cabinetry was remarkable - not a drop of paint left anywhere it didn't belong.Earl was truly a pleasure to work with, responded to our questions in a timely & friendly fashion, and provided knowledgeable (and realistic) advice on different finishes and colour options. He even went above and beyond to point out some small repairs that needed to be addressed around the house which was helpful to us as new owners. We had 4 different companies quote on the job and chose Earl's Paintworks based on a gut feeling that Earl was the right choice. Very happy with our decision - so much so that we're hoping to have them back this summer to do the exterior of our house as well.We would recommend Earl's Paintworks to anyone without hesitation. If you're looking for a hardworking, locally-owned company to do an efficient, professional, super high quality job, this is it!

We wanted the interior and doors repainted in our home in preparation for selling. We obtained a couple of quotes from painters. We ended up choosing Earl due to our positive interactions with him.This is a small but very professional company. It was good to work with a smaller company where the person painting your home is the actual owner and therefore, someone who took full responsibility for the work. Earl was very helpful with colour suggestions. He was easy to communicate with via both emails, phone calls and text. Earl was a perfectionist. He finished our 2 level 2000 sq ft home in about 6 full days. He came a few weeks later to do the exterior doors (garage and entry) when the weather was warmer.I would not hesitate to recommend Earl's Paintworks.
