In a year when we all need to breathe deeply, Breezeway, Behr’s color of the year, is a tranquil, soothing pale green hue. Soft and amenable to a vast range of color pairings, the peaceful shade evokes sea glass, tranquil mornings and young girls in lightweight summer frocks. Breezeway fosters feelings of coolness and peace: the color has no warm elements.
The silvery green shade with cool undertones is part of the Behr 2022 Color Trends Palette, 20 soothing colors that inspire us to enter the new year on a hopeful note. The past year and a half has reinforced the idea of the home as an ultimate safe haven; Breezeway is certainly a color that will freshen and brighten any room. But it also leads us from one place to the next. The color catches our attention and is an open invitation to experience the world with a fresh perspective, both within the home and beyond the front door.
“A new year brings the opportunity to embrace a sense of renewal and pursue untapped passions,” says Erika Woelfel, vice president of color and creative services at Behr Paint Company. “Whether it’s lacing up our hiking boots, or breaking out the gardening tools, 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.”
Breezeway will be available in the brand’s newest product innovation, Behr Dynasty. The most advanced paint in company history, Behr Dynasty is a four-in-one product that offers DIYers, Pro painters and design professionals a unique product to deliver beautiful and durable results.
