All About the 2022 Color of the Year

By Mandy Urban, Design Studio Manager

It’s become an annual tradition for us to check out the color of the year and give you our thoughts on the choice and how it can be used in your home. This year’s choice by Sherwin Williams is Evergreen Fog, a light, neutral green that continues the trend of serenity through design.


If there’s one thing we learned in 2021, it’s that the world isn’t getting any less crazy. Folks have had to ask more of their homes as remote work has continued for many. And as the world seems to get wilder and wilder, people need to find a sense of calm. That’s where a color like Evergreen Fog can shine. It’s just colorful enough to make a statement yet subtle enough to make any room calmer and more collected. It’s not in your face, but it doesn’t disappear. It’s sophisticated, serene, and suitable in a variety of spaces and styles.


As a subtle neutral, there aren’t many places where Evergreen Fog wouldn’t work. But it’s important to remember that wherever you use it, the color is the star. It’s not an in-your-face choice, but it has enough character that it deserves to make its own statement.

It would be easy to see Evergreen Fog in a powder room, and easy to implement as well. But where I really think Evergreen Fog could work perfectly is in an entryway. Bring in some natural baskets, a small bench, and a mirror to reflect some light and brighten the space. Your entryway sets the tone for people entering your home, and Evergreen Fog is a great way to say, “This is a safe, comfortable place.”


There are a couple of interesting ways you can bring Evergreen Fog into your home. The first is a softer, more natural direction. The second is a more modern style.

  • SOFT: Go softer by pairing Evergreen Fog with lighter natural wood tones, whites, organic shapes, and florals. Wicker furniture and décor are becoming more popular and could work really well in this style. This would be perfect in a nursery.

  • MODERN: Go modern by pairing Evergreen Fog with warmer natural wood tones, blacks, sharp edges, and metals. A darker oak would be the perfect wood tone for this style. This look would be great in a home office.

  • When we rightsized from our home of 43 years to a Bielinski Condo in Bay Pointe, our New Home Consultant answered all of our questions and communicated with us the entire way. We’re fully enjoying our beautiful new home and the condo community.
    John and Jean Jones
  • I’ve been so impressed and completely satisfied with the entire Bielinski building experience. From the initial sale and throughout the construction process I have appreciated Bielinski’s professionalism, craftsmanship, and follow-through.
    Heidi Hamilton
  • We are extremely happy with our new Bielinski Condo. It’s well-built and full of all the features we wanted in our home.
    Deborah and Brian Blackney
  • We chose Bielinski because they are a family-owned business and have been building in the Pewaukee area for a long time. The Clemont floor plan is just perfect for all of our family events and Packer parties.
    Bob and Darla Landgren
  • We couldn’t be happier with our new home! The entire process was fantastic. Everyone was so responsive and quick to help. Bielinski’s knowledge of the industry was invaluable. We recommend Bielinski to anyone looking for their next home.
    Mike and Kristin Smith
  • We had a really good experience with Bielinski from start to finish. Everyone was responsive and reliable. Now we are enjoying life in our new home.
    Peter Holzwart and Therese Gaynor-Holzwart
  • Once I got settled in, I knew I was exactly where I belong. Without Bielinski’s knowledge and communication, I would still be questioning whether I should build at all. Thanks to the entire team that made this all possible.
    Barb King
  • We have just purchased our third Bielinski Home in the last 22 years, a Bielinski condo. We have found that Bielinski Homes builds quality homes for fair prices. The craftsmanship of construction and finishing is exceptional, plus they make the buying and building process easy with great customer experience. We would strongly recommend a Bielinski Home.
    Jerald and Jeanne Filut
  • We absolutely loved working with Bielinski Homes — the kindness and knowledge they shared sold us on wanting to move to our new neighborhood. We were worried about moving. But we had no doubts in our minds after speaking with our New Home Consultant about the community and the neighbors. We couldn’t be happier with our new home and new neighborhood.
