Kestrel L478 - The Colour of the Year 2022

Introducing Tikkurila’s colour of the year for 2022, L478 Kestrel.

A blend of rich, warm brown with cool-red undertones - this grounding shade represents familiarity and comfort. A bold colour, yet surprisingly calm and soft.

Cocoon yourself in this classic, reddish-brown hue.

Kestrel is wonderful colour for walls, doors and trim alike, and will add a richness and drama to any space. Applied liberally in north facing rooms, this shade offers a welcoming embrace. Or layered alongside the complementary hues of the Color Now 2022 palette in brighter spaces to bring a contemporary interior with impact.

Taking inspiration from the transient falcon species by the same name, L478 Kestrel symbolizes the adventure of home. The unique memories and experiences that make your house a home.

Filled with memories and experiences, our homes become a part of us wherever we go. L478 Kestrel evokes this sense of belonging.

A tone of warmth, relaxation, creativity.

Every adventure begins at home.
