L478 Kestrel – Color of the Year 2022

How popular and commercially successful are brown tints in modern home palette?

Brown is one of most often used and preferred colours in interior decorating. Designers and customers often select brown and beige as they create a tranquil atmosphere. In addition, brown tints are very nice for modern and classic styles. They can be used in finishing any space – large surfaces or small parts. Brown colour versatility can allow judging that it is a permanent classic and accepted in interior design in all times.

Scientists say, that human eyes can differ on average a million of tints that affect our emotional and physical state in different ways: increase pulse and breathing rate, excitement or relaxation. In the middle of XX century, Swiss physiologist Max Lüscher invented colour testing and identified over 4 thousand tints, colours that have the most active influence on a human.

Palette 2022 contains many natural colours: see-green, sand, pebble, clouds. Why they? Is this because of buyers’ request for a specific atmosphere?

The concept and colour collection of Color 2022 were developed by Tikkurila experts in special work sessions. Special attention was paid to emotions and associations that specialists want to express by Color 2002 L478 Kestrel. The collection contains freshness giving blue-green tints of sea and light tints, caramel-yellow colour that radiates heat even in case of lack of sunlight. Despite of the name, L478 Kestrel is an absolutely terrestrial and practical colour by energy while black X449 Licorice adds showiness and depth. Bring home more lightness like in a vacation by Color 2022. Tikkurila’s main message on the concept of Color 2022: A trip starts at home.
