International. According to the company, this sage green hue captures the beauty of nature as a decorative element to create tranquility throughout the house.
Minwax, a well-known brand in sales of indoor wood dyes and varnishes in the United States, announced its 2022 color, Gentle Olive.
The color is a relaxing sage green with touches of gray that adopts the natural tone of wood to connect homeowners with a timeless style.
"For the past two years, we've been making our homes a more comforting place, a place focused on our well-being, where we relax and clear our minds," said Minwax color marketing manager Sue Kim.
"This year's Minwax color reflects the quest for serenity in our changing routines, as Gentle Olive creates a meditative mood that injects everyday optimism into the home," she said.
Kim describes Gentle Olive as positive and calming, a color based on nature's soothing and restorative qualities that provides an authentic richness to harmonize the interior of the house with the exterior.
According to her, this means health and renewal, "its sage green hue corresponds to the evolutionary function of the home, while its soft gray tone suggests stillness and composure."
Gentle Olive is one of more than 240 color options available at Minwax Wood Finish Water-Based Color Stains, a line of semi-clear, world-new water-based solid dyes that offers the widest variety of colors on the market.
