Introducing Pantone Color of the Year: Very Peri

According to the color gurus at Pantone, 2022 is going to be all about focusing on a combination of tranquility and energy. While 2021 used the combo of two colors, namely Ultimate Grey and Illuminating, Pantone wanted to really encapsulate, in a single color, the steady tranquility of blue with a pop of energetic red. This goal led to the creation of 2022’s color, Veri Peri. In a company first, Pantone decided to go with manufacturing a new color, and the newly revealed shade is already making waves in the global community. With this color pick, Pantone wants us to think of “transformation” and to embrace this altered landscape of possibilities, opening us up to a new vision as we rewrite our lives.” All in all, Pantone believes that Veri Peri demonstrates just how much our world is changing and how we should look forward to the bright future yet to come.

How Very Peri Fits In

Pantone’s newest pick both stands out and harmonizes with anything from deeper shades to paler ones, either as a stand-alone color or as an accent to others, depending on your mood and how you want to use it. Since Veri Peri contains both blue and red undertones, it should fit in well with either of those hues. Meaning, you shouldn’t have to change up your decor a lot if you want to introduce this fun color into your space. Black, greys, beiges, and whites can also be well suited to this bright pop of color, though we’d recommend using Veri Peri pieces as focal points if those are your primary decor shades.

Displaying “carefree confidence and a daring curiosity that animates our creative spirit,” as Pantone describes the color, Veri Peri is fairly versatile and can be incorporated into your home in many different ways. One of the more obvious ways of putting this punchy color into your space is to bring it in with various accents. Maybe use it on an accent wall or a side table, or even look for it in fun textile patterns. A newly reupholstered chair in Veri Peri will become a focal point, act as a great conversation starter, and ultimately display your creativity without appearing too trendy. 

Through Nature and Decor

Of course, Pantone’s most recent color can be found in nature, as well, so bring in the shade through flowers, such as periwinkle and lavender. And even if the flowers themselves aren’t an exact match, a bowl or pot in the shade of Veri Peri will absolutely do the trick. Because Pantone sets the trend for colors in décor year after year, you’ll see new accessories on the market throughout the year as the color grows in popularity. 

Veri Peri’s beauty and versatility make it an ideal and on-trend choice when it comes to home decor. Whether you decide to take a more dramatic look or go for a more subtle approach, you’ll find many ways to experiment with the color and incorporate the shade into your space.
