And just like that, 2021 is coming to a close. Although you may have felt like you were playing catch up this year, a sense of normalcy still feels out of reach for many. And because of that yearning for stability, that collective need for harmony and growth, Etsy predicts that 2022’s trending color is going to be a deep, calming emerald green. Let the soothing begin.

“Symbolizing harmony and growth, along with royalty and refinement, emerald green is the perfect color to remind us to find balance this year,” Etsy Trend Expert, Dayna Isom Johnson wrote in Dec. 1 blog post. “We’re already seeing shoppers looking for ways to incorporate this hue, with searches for emerald green items up 64 percent and emerald green decor up 60 percent.”

Johnson also notes that the richness of emerald green pairs perfectly with so many other colorways like earthy neutrals, luxe metallics, and even warm cottagecore hues like yellows, blush pinks, and maroons. Therefore it’s an excellent shade to work into existing decor schemes.

The trend of emerald green also goes hand-in-hand with Johnson’s prediction that the Swedish concept of “Lagom,” a philosophy that loosely translates to “not too much, not too little” or “just the right amount,” will be implemented by home decor enthusiasts next year.

For those who have Marie Kondo-ed their spaces during lockdown, many are only choosing pieces that really speak to them and that they can see will spark joy for many years to come. Because emerald green is a color that never goes out of style, you’ll definitely come across some pieces that are both on-trend and timeless come 2022.

Make way for emerald green, and get ready to feel more tranquil, balanced, and refined.
