2022 Clark+Kensington Color Trend For The Living Room


It’s time for another 2022 Color Trend from Clark and Kensington. This one is called “Outdoor Escape.”  What I love most about this palette is the colors are designed to work together. Gone are the days of disagreements in the paint aisle because this collection is one anyone can get behind.

2022 Clark+Kensington Color Trend for The Living Room

If your living room needs a refresh, these colors I’m about to share with you are an easy way to update the space to foster an eco-conscious and calming environment.

Let’s jump in, look at the colors and I’ll share with you some ideas on how to use it in your home.

The Outdoor Escape pallet is made up of these five outdoorsy colors:

Over the past few years, I have really been interested in indoor gardening.  The idea of bringing the outdoors, indoors is very trendy right now. Here’s an Annie tip for you. With this collection, I recommend highlighting the room with plants in different heights and texture. The plants accent the color palette so well, they only add to the effect of nature and calming in this space.

This arched accent wall is probably my favorite design trend of the year. No longer is an accent wall just painting a wall a different color than the rest. Adding this shape gives this room a modern look that can be made in any size you choose. Your own work of art.

If you don’t think this color pallet would work in your living room, why not try them in a bedroom or a bathroom.  With the calming nature of this pallet, those are two spaces that would be wonderful options.
