Two of the fresh design colours for 2022 are parma violet and mint. Purple in your decor might not be your cup of tea, but hear us out!
The hot new shade is parma violet, a soft, muted colour that’s perfect for spring. Teamed with greeny-grey mint, it’s perfect for adding a fresh feel to a tired interior. If you’re not sure whether it’s something you can live with, just add a couple of splashes of colour in the shape of carefully chosen accessories. If you’re feeling bold, paint a feature wall – if you love it, you can always paint the rest of the room! Here are some ideas for adding these fresh design colours into your home.
