GLIDDEN paint by PPG names Guacamole its 2022 Color of the Year

Let’s be real: Everyone loves guac – and we’re not afraid to pay extra for it. But, our attraction for green isn’t limited to our food choices, as this beloved shade is single-handedly infiltrating interior design in the form of kitchen cabinetry, tiles, décor and – you guessed it – paint! Today, GLIDDEN® paint by PPG took its green- and guac-loving affinity to a whole new level by announcing its hand-picked 2022 Color of the Year: Guacamole (PPG1121-5), notes a press communiqué from the company.

“We’ve all saved beautiful green kitchens and earthy-inspired bedrooms on our Pinterest boards and TikToks over the past year and a half, driven by our need for calm, regrowth and rejuvenation after living through these ‘unprecedented times,’” said Kim Perry, Glidden paint color guru. “Now, with a little elbow grease and Glidden paint, DIYers and procrastipainters everywhere can make their social screenshots a reality and hopefully gear up for some ‘precedented’ times in the future.”

While we wish picking next year’s color were as simple as choosing chicken or barbacoa for your burrito bowl, it’s not. Glidden paint by PPG’s more than 30 color experts carefully analyze and evaluate trends across multiple industries that impact color preferences, including the runway, lifestyles, global events and cross-cultural inspirations, to determine what colors consumers will actually use in 2022 and beyond. After studying the global impact of the past year, our experts recognized that green would be the “it” color for 2022 and beyond. In fact, online searches for green paint colors more than doubled since 2020 – another indicator that homeowners are in search of rejuvenation and regrowth after living through the strangest year on record.

Glidden Premium interior paint + primer offers DIYers and homeowners exceptional value, helping to beautify any space on a budget. The product is scrubbable and washable for all of life’s little mistakes and was formulated to be thick for easy application, providing good hide and coverage of previously painted surfaces.
