Pantone Color for 2022: An Unexpected Shade of Periwinkle Blue

As is the tradition, toward the end of 2021, paint companies began to announce their color predictions for 2022.Trending toward the comfortable tones of nature both Sherwin Williams and Benjamin Moore selected shades of grayish green similar to a Sage Green color. Both Evergreen Fog and October Mist were colors that looked familiar and could easily be incorporated into one’s home.

In a sea of safe choices and neutral colors, along comes The Pantone Color Institute and their unexpected color of the Year for 2022, a bright optimistic color they created just for 2022 called Very Peri.

Why such a bold color choice?

Honestly, the color is refreshing. A bright optimistic hue in a sea of “safe” greys, creams, and sage greens. In a world that has experienced the past two years of “unexpected” events, Veri Peri is like the promise of Spring when the first little flower pokes its head out of the cold snowy ground reminding us that winter does not last forever, and the hope and warmth of spring are just around the corner.

As Pantone Creative Directors put it, “Very Peri is meant to evoke comfort and hope in an unpredictable time. While encouraging newness and creativity.”

Wondering how to use this bright color in your home?

Like a dose of optimism, it often takes just a little accent color to brighten up a space. Pantone suggests, it is all about the much needed “pop of color.”

Very Peri is the perfect accent color for pillows, rugs,  or artwork to change up a neutral room. Try it as an accent wall or drapery panels in a child’s playroom, or in a guest room. Use it in a fabric Roman shade, the perfect choice to brighten up that laundry room or office space for the new year.

As Laurie Pressman, VP of the Pantone Color Institute said, “Even though we’ve all been shaken a lot to the core, at the same time it is exciting, because we’re looking at the future and we are imagining a whole new way of living, and it opened a whole new perspective on life, what we value, and where do we go from here.”
