Bright Skies – Sikkens colour of 2022

This year I am late to write about the color chosen by AzkoNoble as their color for the year 2022 but, as they say in these cases, better late than never.
The Global Aesthetic Center of AkzoNobel (Dutch multinational that owns the Sikkens brand among others) analyzes every year, with its color experts and a team of design specialists, the latest global trends, in order to create their own Color of the Year (with 4 palettes). The color reflects the mood of the moment, the social and economic changes, the lifestyle and it is therefore a color destined to have an impact on homes around the world.
The color of the year is called BRIGHT SKIESit is a light, ethereal and optimistic shade that contains a breath of fresh air” says Heleen van Gent, creative director of AkzoNobel’s Global Aesthetic Center. The Bright Skies color reflects our great desire for openness, after a period of closure in ourselves, the desire for large outdoor spaces, of nature, the desire to start over and a new beginning.

In addition to choosing the color of the year, AzkoNobel’s experts also create four color palettes that help us understand how to apply and match Bright Skies color in our projects.

These are the four palettes presented this year: THE WORKSHOP COLORSTHE STUDIO COLORSTHE GREENHOUSE COLORSTHE SALON COLORS

 

1 – THE WORKSHOP COLOURS

A palette designed for a space where you can do what you want, a space where you can express yourself and your passions, where you can have fun.

Multicolored and joyful, this light and bright color palette is perfect for reinventing the home and creating multipurpose spaces. Positive and complementary colors that allow you to make fun even functional.

 

2 – THE GREENHOUSE COLOURS

This palette, inspired by the natural world, wants to bring the outdoors inside the house to give a feeling of contact with nature even inside.

The fresh greens and blues of the Greenhouse palette, used with the color of the year 2022, Bright Skies ™, bring the beneficial effects of nature into the home and help to bring a feeling of tranquility and well-being.

 

3 – THE STUDIO COLOURS

The tone combinations of the Studio palette are ideal for creating a bright background, a source of inspiration and creativity.

Simply mix and match blocks of color to create your personal selection of Studio Palette colors along with clear and ethereal Bright Skies ™. These soft pinks and blues help transform any space into a reassuring and comfortable ‘temple’. Delicate and stimulating, they help us recharge and escape from everyday life.

 

 

4 – THE SALON COLOURS

This is the most neutral palette of the four that was chosen to express the sense of empathy and openness towards others that we felt during the pandemic.

Soft whites and light neutrals, these shades create the perfect blank canvas. Fresh and unifying, they make your home ready for any decor.

What is your favorite palette? In my opinion, the Greenhouse and Salon are the easiest to apply at home, given that they are the most neutral and with less contrast. But I must admit, I kind of love the bright and fun colors of the Workshop palette.
