It's no secret: Colors can majorly affect your mood. That's part of the reason why people spend so much time fussing over what color to paint their bedrooms or what hue they want their new sofa to be. Some colors can even help relax your mind and help facilitate creativity. So, when Behr Paint Company named its color of the year earlier this week, people took note.

On Tuesday, the brand announced Breezeway as its 2022 color of the year. It's a minty, almost pastel-like green shade that the brand says "evokes feelings of coolness and peace while representing a desire to move forward and discover newfound passions." And with the last two years we've had, that's something that we all could use heading into the future.

"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. “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.”

The minty-like color is soft enough to help inspire a calm energy but bold enough to make an impact in whatever space you see it. And you don't necessarily have to paint your walls to get the most out of Breezeway—you can purchase some everyday items for your home that'll evoke the same vibes. For some help and inspiration on how to incorporate this light and air-y hue into your life, we've rounded up some of the most stylish and original products that possess the same color schemes.
