Calm and soothing, the organically influenced October Mist 1495/CC-550 was chosen by the paint, colour and coatings brand to be the perfect canvas for encouraging creativity, imagination and personal expression at home. “As the spaces in our home continue to evolve,” says Andrea Magno, Benjamin Moore’s Director of Colour Marketing & Development, “we uncover more opportunities to express our individuality and leverage the power of colour to design environments that serve different functions and styles.”
The welcoming tone — also recently highlighted by AZURE as a furniture trend — anchors Benjamin Moore’s coordinating Colour Trends 2022 palette of 13 other “luminous pales and botanical hues” that are “harmonious yet diverse, reliable yet whimsical and meditative yet eclectic.” A yearlong collaborative process, the cohesive collection references “everyday observations, hobbies, personal rituals and cultural influences.”
Compared to a flower’s silver-green stem off of which other colours – and inspirations – can bloom, October Mist is a beautiful foil for such varied nature-inspired tones as Wild Flower 2090-40, Pale Moon OC-108 and Hint of Violet 2114-60 or the more neutrally-minded Steam AF-15, Morning Dew OC-140, Collector’s Item AF-45 and Natural Linen CC-90.
Falling on the saturated side are Mysterious AF-565, Gloucester Sage HC-100 and High Park 467, while Venetian Portico AF-185, Fernwood Green 2145-40 and Quiet Moments 1563 round out the carefully curated collection.
A synthesis of colours that range from restorative and sophisticated to familiar and invigorating, it’s an exemplary palette and one that is sure to foster personal style and experimentation. “October Mist CC-550 and the corresponding Colour Trends 2022 palette reflects an effortless harmony of colours, while inspiring unique combinations for any paint project,” notes Magno.
The gently shaded sage green makes a subdued yet compelling backdrop for creative expression.
