Pantone has a new colour especially created for its Colour of the Year 2022: Pantone 17- 3938 Very Peri. Described as the “happiest and warmest of all blues”, it is a violet-blue with a distinct warm red undertone.
The colour conveys a positive outlook on transformative times, which presents a mix of newness and empowering energy.
How can we incorporate this colour into our palette? Start small with accessories and accent colours in Very Peri.
Or go bold with solid walls.
Besides pairing well with both cool and warm palettes, it can appear blue and purple depending on its surroundings. Peri’s red undertone also reduces harmful blue light generated by the screen.
Plus, creating unusual colour combinations adds freshness to our physical spaces.
Refresh a classic look by pairing it with natural wood tones and greys. Create a contemporary, updated look by adding Very Peri elements to muted greens, blues, dusty pink and beige – the colours popular among paint brand giants
this year – like this artistic living room corner by Essential home.
With its bright blue pop, the Edith sideboard from Essential Home complements the room’s warm pastel colour scheme.
Very Peri is also suitable for more extravagant, experimental textures and materials with shimmery metallic finishes and iridescent and lustrous sheens.
Colours like this encourage experimentation, and the result may surprise you, in a good way. The world needs more of
that in 2022.
