Behr Paint Company announced its 2022 Color of the Year, Breezeway MQ3-21, an approachable but noticeable color. The silvery green shade with cool undertones, part of the Behr 2022 Color Trends Palette, is inspired by the earth’s beauty and mimics naturally stunning sea glass found on the shore of salty beaches.

Breezeway evokes feelings of coolness and peace while representing a desire to move forward and discover newfound passions. Leading you from one place to the next, the color catches your attention and is an open invitation to experience the world with a fresh perspective, both within the home and beyond your front door.

"A new year brings the opportunity to embrace a sense of renewal and pursue untapped passions," says Erika Woelfel, vice president of color and creative services at Behr Paint Company. “Whether it’s lacing up our hiking boots, or breaking out the gardening tools, Breezeway inspires us to fully embrace the hobbies or adventures, both near and far, that excite us. We look forward to a color that welcomes a hopeful sense of renewal, restoration and healing.”

Breezeway will be available in the brand's newest product innovation, Behr Dynasty. The most advanced paint in company history, Behr Dynasty is a four-in-one product that offers DIYers, Pro painters and design professionals a unique product to deliver beautiful and durable results. It’s the most stain repellent, scuff-resistant- fast drying one-coat coverage paint all in one can within the Behr product portfolio.
