What are the colors of 2022? In this blog we discuss the chosen colors and how to bring them into your home with our Cotton Ball Lights light strings!
The color of the new year... Every year, different paint companies, design websites and fashion magazines announce the color for the new year. Of course we are curious which colors are chosen and how we can best style them with our Cotton Ball Lights light strings!
The Flexa color of 2022 is Bright Skies and this is, as the name itself implies, a bright, airy, light blue hue. On the website of 100% woongeluk they make the meaning of Flexa behind the Bright Skies color known and this is, especially for the time in which we live now, a very nice: a new beginning. With this color you bring nature into your home and make the rooms more lively!
I was very curious how Flexa chose this color as the color of 2022. As always, a panel of international design experts comes together and Flexa gets a clear understanding of what the look of the moment is and what things influence the way we live. Of course, the role of our home has changed in the past two years because of the pandemic and the various lockdowns, and it has also become very clear how important nature and being outside is in our lives. That's why they chose an optimistic, natural color that is multifunctional.
Bright Skies can be brought into your home in a variety of ways, such as with our Cotton Ball Lights indoor light strings! The regular light garlands Aqua Grey, Aqua, Pastel and Macaron all contain light blue cotton balls and are wonderful mood lighting for indoors in any room. The Premium garland Cool Choice is also a good choice for indoor atmosphere and lighting. Of course, you can also put together your own cotton ball light string using our Mix & Match tool and then the Light Aqua or Baby Blue cotton ball will come closest to Bright Skies!
But not only Flexa chooses a color of 2022, also Histor has chosen the color of the new year: Olive Sprig. At www.histor.nl, Histor states that this color is a flexible gray-green that radiates growth and resilience and symbolizes something beautiful that is, of course, also related to the pandemic: authenticity, a natural environment and personal contact. Olive Sprig is a relaxing color, it brightens up a space and it creates liveliness. The hue refers to the olive branch and represents peace, harmony and hope. A colorful interior helps to create optimistic thinking and just a little color can give a room a completely different look!
Olive Sprig is wonderful to combine with wooden furniture and it is beautiful to match your interior by recurring the color in the Cotton Balls garland like in the bulb garland Wanderlust, Forest Green, Forest Fruit or the premium light cord in Urban Green!
Internationally, the Pantone color institute has been choosing a "color of the year" for the coming year since 2000. Pantone publishes color codes and for the first time has created a new color especially for this occasion: Very Peri! It is a color of periwinkle blue with violet-red undertones and, according to www.pantone.com, symbolizes "the global zeitgeist of the moment and the transition we are going through." The new color was created specifically to "celebrate" how our lives have been changed by the pandemic and how our collective creativity is reaching new heights.
Currently we do not have an existing light string with purple-blue colors, but of course we do have the Mix & Match tool where you can create your own light garland! The color of our cotton balls that comes closest to Very Peri is Purple. Purple in combination with for example our cotton ball Lavender or Light Magenta or a neutral color like White, Shell, Stone or Mid Grey (depends on your interior) also forms a beautiful garland!
The above chosen colors of 2022 certainly don't match each other and they don't have to, but what does match is that the pandemic is central to the meanings behind the chosen colors. I love that they represent positivity and optimism, so I'm curious to see if many walls or accessories will be colored in Bright Skies, Olive Sprig or Very Peri in-house in 2022! Let us know what you think of the colors of 2022 and if you're going to use these colors in your home!
