Pantone Colour of The Year 2022

The wait is finally over, Pantone have released their colour of the year again, and this year it’s better than ever. Let us introduce you to Very Peri – described as a “dynamic periwinkle blue hue with a vivifying violet red undertone”.

What is Pantone Colour of The Year?

If you’re not familiar with the process, each year, since 2000, Pantone announces a new colour that they believe articulates the way of the world, and this year the colour conveys a complex meaning. With the colour blue, we often associate it with open spaces, the sky, or perhaps the sea – and with that comes with connotations of freedom, something we are all hopefully starting to feel.


“Very Peri is a symbol of the global zeitgeist of the moment and the transition we are going through” – Pantone

The colour also has undertones of violet – a colour that is often associated with wealth. It is described as a colour “whose courageous presence encourages personal inventiveness and creativity” and from a designer standpoint this is truly inspiring!

How could you implement Very Peri into your home?

The colour of your home interior can be essential to bringing you positivity, and this shade infuses a sense of not only this, but also comfort and peace. So, whether you are looking for a complete Very Peri makeover or want to add some simple accents, this versatile shade could be a great addition to your design.

Here at Grace & Grey, we have come up with some ideas of incorporating the Very Peri colour to transform your den of daring creativity and innovative expressions.

Accent Wall:

Using a colour as bold as Very Peri might seem rather daunting, however one way we recommend incorporating this shade into your home is as an accent wall. This way you can include a colour you love without it overpowering the room.

Wondering what colours to pair with? How about Little Greene’s French Grey, or French Grey Pale to bring back some light in to the room.

Accent Pieces:

This leads to accent pieces, something which can really pull a room together! How about pairing the purple hue with gold pieces to complement? A gold lamp can be a simple but elegant touch, and if you’re feeling even more daring, how about a mouse lamp. If this isn’t to your taste, then a simple but classy gold wall lamp could accentuate the Very Peri colour. Soft furnishings are always a go to, so how about a cushion or throw, or even some faux flowers, with a touch of purple – a simple yet effective way of incorporating the shade into your space without overdoing it.

Statement piece:

If you’re feeling brave, how about a statement piece? A gold sideboard or large gold clock can really create personality in a room, even against a bold colour like Very Peri.
