In fact, all of you with those tired 90s homes in need of an update, the Color of the Year will work beautifully.

Is green a neutral color?
The 2022 pick for Color of the Year, October Mist, is described by the brand as “a gently shaded sage that quietly anchors while encouraging creative expression through color.” Though green, the shade is mild enough to act as a neutral.
And, if you’ve noticed that green is popping up, well, everywhere, you aren’t alone. In fact, Sherwin Williams announced a similar color of the year recently for 2022, Evergreen Fog SW-9130.
