Color Forecast 2022 By Jotun: Embrace, Playful, and Cherish


Embrace, Playful, and Cherish are the color trends that belong to TOGETHER, the core theme of Jotun‘s next forecast for 2022.


“Humans are social beings and thrive best with others. The time we spend with family and friends is enriching for body, soul and mind. The need to meet others has rarely been greater than right now. For good conversation, laughter, a bit of gossip, or to share a moment of friendly silence. Just being together can lift your spirits and generate new ideas.”

-Lisbeth Larsen, Global Color Manager, Jotun


Colors have a similar effect – they can calm or perk us up, clear our minds, or kick-start our creativity. The 2022 color palettes are designed to reflect and highlight different aspects of personal needs and lifestyles.



The inspiration comes here from a natural and embracing palette. EMBRACE is reminiscent of earth, sand, desert, iron, and rust. We’ve learned that surrounding ourselves with natural tones in the home positively affects us; it gives humans a sense of joy and harmony.

– Memories can be brought to life with the help of colors. A yellowish-beige tone can make us remember grandma’s old kitchen and a blue-grey tone can bring back summer memories of an old summer cottage. In this way, colors can create precious moments,” explains Lisbeth Larsen, Global Colour Manager at Jotun.

This theme values the beauty of the long-lasting and rustic. EMBRACE speaks about a home that feels unpretentious yet personal and preferably “spiced up” with unique furniture and art.

In this theme, cold tones meet warm and golden hues. There are many possible combinations here; the hues you put together determine how contrasting the color scheme will be.




Launching our materials boxes: Fab Fibers


Comforting textures in timeless tones – What’s not to love? This box offers velvet,  cotton,  bouclé wool, jute, linen, and so much more.

We like to describe these fabric samples as your staple kit so that you can rely on it consistently in your creative work.











Colors carry hope and optimism. This is expressed through the fresh and bright yellows and greens, with uplifting lavenders, creating a color palette full of energy and playful combinations.

The PLAYFUL range comes packed with powerful, bright colors; it’s all about unleashing our creativity and giving new color combinations a chance. Jotun encourages us to thrive in a creative interior with encouraging turquoise and green, happy sun-filled yellows, and shades of uplifting lavender.

If you think it’s too daring to choose the most vibrant colors for all the walls in an entire room, there are many alternatives. Using a more neutral base, you can, for example, paint some details like furniture or a wall. Or how about coloring the ceiling in an intense color against more neutral walls?

Dream big, play, and let the colors in with delicate energy bombs!



Nature-Inspired fabrics in one sample box by Eclectic Trends


Hello, dear nature-loving crafter, maker, and designer.

Welcome to our box full of fauna and flora-inspired fabrics, which offers a diverse range of nature-inspired designs, allowing you to explore different themes and moods:

  • Playful jungle prints
  • Delicate flower patterns
  • Lush leaves weaved into velvet,
  • Pixelated interpretation of nature (very cool);
  • Classy and subtle animal print,
  • Mono-colored swatches to support your natural themes,





In times of uncertainty, muted and natural colors remind us that home is the very anchor of existence, says Lisbeth Larsen; it’s our warm haven where we feel safe and comfortable.

The palette is made of warm neutrals, which are cocooning, warm and enveloping. A homely, comfortable atmosphere can be created with delicate textiles and soft surfaces. The new neutrals are friendly and have more red than the golden beige tones we’ve seen in recent years.

With a few touches of light green and shades of rust, details are highlighted, or walls are given delicate contrasting colors to the neutrals.
The added dusty shades create a subtle, soft, and elegant interior suited for a “greige” expression. All in all, this palette shows minimalism with a sensual difference.

How about some extra inspiration?

  1. 1.You have range. But the shades are too scattered. I made some wrong selections wasting money. So I suggest bring out a user friendly palette. For example start with palest yellow at one end and lemon yellow at the other end. Add more brown in next page with its range of light to dark shades.
    2.Only if you have such usable colour scheme will I return next time
    3.Print colour code in all photos
    4.Too much light zones in photos to know actual colour. So give colour index also with code.

    1. Thank you for your suggestions. We would like to ask you to contact the paint provider if you’d like to receive further information since the colours and images belong to their collection. Also, please note these are paint colors for walls, they usually do not come with a color code per see, but maybe contacting Jotun directly, you might receive some additional information? Best wishes.
