Say Hello to the Pantone Color of the Year 2022

Say Hello to the Pantone Color of the Year 2022

Jan 1, 2022

The weather outside may be chilly, but we are warming up with the vibrant Pantone Color of the Year 2022: Very Peri. This dynamic periwinkle blue with violet red undertones is carefree, energizing and hopeful. Its “empowering mix of newness,” according to the company press release, inspires us to be curious and take a chance as we emerge from a very challenging time. And Pantone, undoubtedly took the lead here, too. This is also the first time Pantone has created a new shade of color for its Color of the Year program. Is this transformative and innovative color speaking to you? Here are some quick tips on how to use it in your home this spring.

Pop of Color

This versatile color makes it perfect for a bold approach so make it fun! Natural elements and materials are going to big in this year and contrast is never out of style. Paint one accent wall or look for a wallpaper pattern with this shade.


2022 is on trend for vintage inspired textures so think accent pillows and one-of-a-kind end tables or side chairs. This shade looks stunning in a variety of textures, materials and finishes, so you can incorporate unique pieces into your home that fit your personality and style. If you’re partial to oriental or vintage rugs like us, stop by the Aladdin Rug Gallery or shop online for a rug that has a shade of periwinkle.

Keep it Natural

Much like 2021, 2022 is projecting to continue plants as a major design element. This shade also has roots in nature-like lavender, lilac and other periwinkle flowers and plants which will keep you on trend with bit of a colorful twist. Not to mention, plants promote clean air and calming effects: another win.

Whether you are looking for a high contrast or something natural, this warm and optimistic color has something to offer everyone. Pantone chose Very Peri as a reminder to “embrace the altered landscape of possibilities” and trust in the possibilities of the future. As we step into 2022, we are excited for the creativity and expression for the year ahead.
