Evergreen Fog SW 9130

Evergreen Fog evokes growth and rejuvenation. We evolved from last year’s grounded and rich Urbane Bronze to the fresh and regenerating shade of Evergreen Fog. So what color is Evergreen Fog? Evergreen Fog is a muted sage green with a touch of gray. This combination makes it a color chameleon. For example, the color shifts from looking more green or gray depending on the type of lighting. This characteristic makes it versatile and suitable for many different uses and styles. This color coordinates with every style, from Cottage Core to streamlined and minimal modern. Evergreen Fog is a part of Sherwin Williams 2022 Color Forecast and is part of the Method collection

Evergreen Fog is suitable for creating a warm and inviting environment. The green color feels fresh yet familiar, ideal for places like entrances and lobbies. The color green is associated with nature, health, prosperity, and comfort. Green has a calming effect and connects to nature. Use it as an accent wall for a soothing feature, or use it as a backdrop to layer one’s personalized flair.

This dining room below showcases Evergreen Fog as the general wall paint color. The fresh color complements this more modern and minimal style. This soft sage green creates an environment for a welcoming yet sophisticated statement.
