What is Very Peri?
For the first time, Pantone created a colour from scratch, instead of picking from their vast library, to be presented as Colour of the Year for 2022. Very Peri is a red violet infused periwinkle shade that embodies the constancy and calm of blues, with a hint of excitement from its red undertone. This warm, whimsical colour encourages creativity and expression, ideal qualities to fill our homes with as we take on the new year.

Start small with pops of Very Peri
Starting with light neutral walls (think white, beige or cream), choose a grey sofa to anchor your living room. Then bring in pops of Very Peri through soft furnishings like cushions, artwork or pendant lights. To get a bright and cheerful space, add hints of lively coral or pink.
Very Peri works well in a dining room too. The blue hue is great when paired with bright pastels like turquoise. Then choose a fresh white wooden dining set to give the space a clean, contemporary look.
Go bold with Very Peri walls
Drawing from Very Peri’s soothing qualities, paint the walls of a quiet room or area to create a relaxing retreat. Style a cosy reading nook with a comfy grey armchair and layer it with cushions in pink hues like violet and lilac for a soft, tonal effect. Add a stylish sconce or floor lamp to ensure sufficient lighting, and finish off with brass accents to brighten the space.
