Dutch Boy® Paints Unveils 2022 One-Coat Color of the Year and Color Trends

Day-to-day lives have changed, and our homes have become a place for both work and play where we’ve taken up new hobbies and slowed down to enjoy the simple things again. Embracing the home’s new roles, along with a continued need for calm and serenity in our personal spaces, Dutch Boy® Paints reveals “Cypress Garden,” a beautiful, muted olive green, as its 2022 One-Coat Color of the Year.

Cypress Garden

The simplicity of Cypress Garden (424-4DB) is also reflected in its application. The 2022 Color of the Year is a one-coat color, making the painting process simple for do-it-yourselfers (DIYers). Cypress Garden is part of Dutch Boy Paints’ collection of nearly 850 one-coat colors that provide optimal coverage in a single coat.

“Color and design are affected greatly by the world around us,” said Ashley Banbury, NCIDQ, senior color designer for Dutch Boy Paints. “With our 2022 One-Coat Color of the Year, it’s all about helping DIYers create spaces that bring the tranquility of nature home. Inspired by nature, Cypress Garden can infuse serenity into our daily schedules with a gentle color that embraces both warm and cool undertones in wood and accents.”
