If you’re looking for a way to add some happiness and playfulness to your home, look no further than Pantone’s 2022 color of the year: Very Peri! This is the first time in Pantone’s history that they dreamt up a brand-new shade, and it’s definitely one worth trying. This dynamic periwinkle blue hue with a violet-red undertone is perfect for adding some excitement into your decorating ideas. Why not try painting a room in Very Peri or using it as an accent color? You can also add new fabrics or accessories in this hue to make your favorite reading chair really pop. So why not give Pantone’s latest color trend a try? It might just be what you need to add some color into your home.
“This blue is special because it has an optimism to it,” said Laurie Pressman, Vice President of the Pantone Color Institute. “It’s not just a color you would use for business or corporate events; it has a personality that can be used in any space.” The combination of colors is meant to revolutionize the familiar with something new. So it is perfect for marrying something existing in your home with something new and fresh.
Now considering transforming one of your favorite rooms with this new, happy hue? Here are four ways to style your home with Pantone’s latest color trend:
1. Add some excitement with an all-Very Peri room. Paint or wallpaper one wall in Very Peri and use it as an accent color elsewhere in the room. This is a great way to try out the new hue without making a big commitment. Add brightness with colorful accessories.
2. If you’re not ready to paint your walls, why not add some fun accessories in Very Peri? From rugs and pillows to artwork and vases, there are plenty of options for adding some color to your home. Try mixing and matching different shades of blue to create a fun and eclectic look. Go bold with new fabric choices.
3. Looking to add pops of color to your future home gatherings or dinner parties? Try experimenting with playful drinkware like these hand blown wine glasses. The Amethyst Sheer or Twisty color will make a statement without feeling overwhelming.
4. If you’re looking for a really big change, why not try using Very Peri in your fabric choices? A few simple changes, like swapping out your curtains or upholstering a piece of furniture in the new hue, can make a big impact on the overall look of your home. So don’t be afraid to experiment!
