Behr’s 2022 color of the year, Breezeway, surely evokes feelings of coolness and peace.

In just a few months, we’ll be saying goodbye to 2021 and look to the bright possibilities 2022 has to offer. So it’s no surprise that when Behr announced its 2022 color of the year: Breezeway, which embraces a sense of renewal and to explore new hobbies and adventures! Behr’s 2022 color of the year represents a desire to move forward and discover newfound passions. It positively evokes feelings of coolness and peace, which we all need during this pandemic.


Breezeway is the breath of fresh air and optimism we all need in our homes. “It’s a cool and dramatic tone that’s inspired by naturally stunning sea glass found on the shore of salty beaches,” says the brand.


A silvery green shade with cool undertones, Breezeway is “an approachable but noticeable color,” the perfect paint color to inspire us to enter the new year on a hopeful note, to embrace the path ahead with uplifted spirits, while centering the home as an ultimate oasis.

Erika Woelfel, Vice President of Color and Creative Services at Behr Paint Company, says that Breezeway inspires us to fully embrace the hobbies or adventures, both near and far, that excite us. We look forward to a color that welcomes a hopeful sense of renewal, restoration, and healing.
