Those looking for an affordable home refresh in 2022 can turn to a couple of cans of paint to turn drab into fab — Fab 5, that is. "Queer Eye" home expert Bobby Berk offers his top paint color trends of the new year, which he describes as "serene shades, calming colors, and enlivening hues."

Gray Green

Gray is here to stay, but with a slight makeover. Particularly popular for the kitchen, gray-green can warm up a space without overwhelming it.

Pale Peach

Berk turns to pale peach for a soft burst of brightness. The shade brings a warm, tropical feel to any room if you can get past baby aspirin flashbacks.

Beachy Blue/Green

The seemingly never-ending pandemic may delay your next trip to the beach, but a fresh coat of beachy blue/green can make you feel like you've moved into a swanky VRBO.

Graphite Gray

"Expect lots of designers to embrace the dark side," says Berk of this bold choice for a room or accent wall. Contrast with neutrals for maximum impact.
