Just before the new year, Pantone announces their Color of the Year – a prediction of upcoming design trends. This year, the color is “Very Peri” or more formally, PANTONE 17-3938.
Very Peri is a brand new color created by Pantone this year, and is described as a red violet infused blue hue. When it comes to designing the interior of your home, Pantone’s Color of the Year may be a creative place to start when thinking about things like an accent wall, furniture colors, or interior decorations. Maybe it’s not your color, or maybe it is, but either way it’s a fun place to start when thinking about how you want your home to look and feel!
When Panton announced the 2022 Color of the Year, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute Leatrice Eiseman had this to say, “Encompassing the qualities of the blues, yet at the same time possessing a violet-red undertone, PANTONE 17-3938 Very Peri displays a spritely, joyous attitude and dynamic presence that encourages courageous creativity and imaginative expression.”
Combining the trustworthy feelings that often come from the blue color family, with the inventive feeling of red violet, Very Peri is a color that is meant to bring about feelings of positive creativity and joy.
In 2021, a year of uncertainty for many, Ultimate Gray and Illuminating Yellow were chosen as Pantone’s colors of the year, representing “feelings of thoughtfulness with the promise of something sunny and friendly.” For more about these colors, check out our Color of the Year article for 2021.
