Pantone Very Peri Colour of the Year 2022

What is Very Peri?

Hold on to your paint brushes, the global colour chiefs at Pantone have hit the refresh button with a brand new shade for 2022: Very Peri 17-3938. And it’s not for the colour shy. Think power-packed periwinkle – a mix of energetic blue and violet-red tones. It’s described as “a symbol of the global zeitgeist of the moment and the transition we are now going through”.

Very Peri is brave and bold, tick. A spirited, carefree colour to get us talking. Double tick. Tell us more.

Timing is everything. Love it or loathe it, Pantone’s Very Peri is exciting, energetic and full of possibilities. A vibrant violet to kickstart change in our lives and our homes after the challenges and isolation of pandemic life. 

Bring it on.

Pantone Very Peri Colour of the Year 2022

What if I’m a shrinking violet?

If neutrals are more your thing, stay with us. Very Peri COTY 2022 doesn’t need to totally transform all four walls. It can be a soothing, spiritual accent shade to lift a plain white bathroom. A talking point in the kitchen. Or a joyful hit of colour in the garden.

Very Peri is a colour you’re more familiar with than you think. You’ll find it in digital design and the natural world – from hi-tech games to beautiful blooms. There’s no better time to experiment. Trust us.

Where do I start?

Colour lovers can go wild with Veri Peri. Think bold, print wallpaper in a happy clash of periwinkle, sky blue and navy (offset with a bright fuchsia pink sofa if you dare). Or go top to toe purple walls in a cloakroom for a regal touch and watch chrome or gold brassware pop.

Still unsure? A couple of fringed lilac cushions scattered around a living space or bedroom will inject a much-needed seasonal boost to any decor. Or simply invest in a set of shimmering lavender wine glasses and celebrate the New Year in style.
