Evergreen Fog SW 9130 is a versatile and calming hue, a chameleon color of gorgeous green-meets-gray, with just a bit of blue. It’s a simple but sophisticated wash of beautiful, organic color for spaces that crave a subtle yet stunning statement shade.
Sue Wadden, director of color marketing at Sherwin-Williams, says she knew green was going to be an important color for 2022. But she and her team wanted to pick the perfect green for the Sherwin-Williams Color of the Year. “We didn’t want it to be too dark or something you’d necessarily relegate to a cabinet or a piece of furniture or an accent wall,” she says. “We wanted it to be a color you could put on all four walls — and have it look really beautiful.” Evergreen Fog SW 9130 (215-C4) stood out as the winning hue. “It’s not in your face,” Wadden says. “It’s a little more subtle, a little more recessive, and a little more relatable.”

Evergreen Fog is Cool and Refreshing
Evergreen Fog is a soothing, subtle shade that is easy to use in every part of the home, indoors or out.
"The familiar, comfortable nature of Evergreen Fog shines as a reassuring backdrop and freshens up any space," Wadden said. "Create depth and texture with a mix of natural-looking textiles. Add a little gleam with a fusion of metals — champagne gold, warm brass, or inky black."
Wadden recommends pairing the hue with organic neutrals such as Shoji White SW 7042, Accessible Beige SW 7036, and Woven Wicker SW 9104, and tonal luxurious hues such as Urbane Bronze SW 7048, Über Umber SW 9107, and Bakelite Gold SW 6368.
A Soothing Hue to Freshen Commercial Spaces
This unique and versatile color suits a variety of spaces, substrates, and design styles, including art deco, modern organic, and postmodernism.
"Evergreen Fog brings a regenerative touch to any environment, whether hotel room, restaurant, or office," said Wadden, the director of color marketing at Sherwin-Williams., The calming and composed color lends itself to multiuse areas to promote the versatility of the space, lounges and other areas used for rest and relaxation, and entry areas and lobbies as a comforting welcome.
