In the middle of each year, there is a flutter of conversations in the design industry about what the colour trends will be for the following year. This year’s conversations were delayed as that scary global bug has been so disruptive. We have listened to a variety of predictions from The colour Marketing Group, WGSN and Colouro and have extracted the leading favourites for kitchens in Toronto in 2022.
The overall sentiment is that storyboards will be dominated by neutral shades and moods. This will be interpreted through soft hues and medium pigments, but there will still be a small percentage of the marketing going for pure, vivid colours as a symbol of hope.
The leading colours for 2022 are green quartz, tech blue or bright blue, dahlia orange, military gold, buttercream and chocolate brown. Let’s look at each one:
Green is dominating scientific conversations and interior design storyboards everywhere and will be strong in 2022! Green Quartz is a softer, understated green but not insipid. This timeless choice will work long into the future.
Strong and positive, this colour is reminiscent of deep pits of organic, exotic indigo dyes. This clear shade of blue is the perfect choice for feature walls, island cabinetry and accessories.
Orange has been favoured through the centuries as a creativity stimulant and a symbol of fun and the avant-garde. The Dahlia flower is bold, bright and joyful, and that’s what you will see when you use this colour in your, otherwise, neutral kitchen.
Words that describe this colour are: serious, moody and nostalgic. This colourway will give a definite gravitas to your kitchen in Toronto.
An absolute classic – this neutral is famous in traditionally styled interiors but will work brilliantly in a contemporary arrangement as well. Soft, nurturing and versatile, it works as well on the walls as it does on cabinetry doors and panels.
Deeply reminiscent of soil, bark, and cabins, expect an ambience of comfort, coziness and calm. On the flip side, it provides a strong contrast for other colours without being as dominant as black or charcoal. An elegant option for a contemporary or classic interior.
The overall tip when choosing colour is to choose what you like, not what the trend experts say.
