Color of the Year 2022, Pantone Calls For Cool Optimism With Very Peri
Since 2007 Pantone has been releasing their color of the year and 2022 is no exception! The annual color forecast influences fashion runways, corporate branding, advertising campaigns, and interior design trends. Pantone recently announced the color of 2022 is PANTONE 17-3938 Very Peri. What does Pantone’s blue-periwinkle color choice mean for 2022? How will Very Peri influence interior design trends? And how can you bring the look home? Read on as we dig in!
Color psychology studies how color affects emotion and communicates an idea. Pantone’s color of the year reflects public opinion and shared emotion going into the new year. Like the environmentalism-inspired green of 2017 and hope-filled yellow of 2021, this year’s periwinkle also has a deeper meaning. Pantone chose Very Peri as a reflection of culture coming out of isolation from the pandemic. The warm blue tone symbolizes carefree confidence and fuels our creative spirit. Having an energetic color is exactly what we need while recovering from such a hard year. Surround yourself with positivity by adding pops of Very Peri in your wardrobe and home in 2022.
Very Peri at Home
The interior design industry has trending colors every year. In 2021 Pantone’s secondary color of the year was “Ultimate Gray” and influenced a wave of gray-washed apartments. In 2022 pops of color will regain popularity in interior design. A bright color like Very Peri can seem a bit intimidating to incorporate into your home. Surprisingly, Pantone’s color of 2022 can be easily paired with bright colors and neutral colors depending on your style. Very Peri pairs well with other bright colors like fuchsia, bubblegum pink, and honey yellow. On the contrary, it can be your accent color when paired with neutral browns, greys, and tans. Ultimately, buying a timeless piece of furniture in Very Peri will incorporate color into your home without it quickly going out of style.
