Color lovers wait annually with bated breath for Pantone to release its Color of the Year. For 2022, the honors go to Very Peri. A joyous interpretation of periwinkle, the color expresses a new sort of vibe: a fresher, richer, and warmer blue that represents confidence, happiness, and creativity all at once.
There’s a zen-like vibe about Very Peri, too. That’s true of most colors in the blue and purple families, which tend to resonate with feelings of serenity, tranquility, calm, and ease. Purple, of course, also channels a sense of regality. This year’s pick offers the best of both worlds: it’s soothing, yes, but there’s also a spirited side to it. It’s uplifting and energetic, with an underlying optimism that makes it perfect in this year of renewal and engagement. That’s thanks to the violet red-based undertone that enriches the color, lending it a deeper quality.
Another advantage of Very Peri is its versatility. It’s one of those colors that virtually everyone can implement in some way or another. Adding it to your surroundings is a simple and effective way to boost your mood. With a single glance at something brimming with this pretty purple-meets-periwinkle-meets-blue hue, you’ll feel energized and motivated. That’s just the kind of carefree quality it brings to any space.
