Pantone, the world’s foremost authority on color trends and forecasting, has revealed its 2022 Pantone Color of the Year – Very Peri. This carefully-selected color comes from the blue family, with violet-red undertones to create a periwinkle hue. The annual announcement is always eagerly anticipated by the design community, understanding its year-long influence on their style and design choices when it comes to graphic design, interior design, home décor, and more. However, many individuals who are not spending their working hours in the design industry still want to incorporate the Color of the Year into their 2022 choices – giving the vibe that they’re up-to-date on emerging trends. Following are some ways the everyday person can honor and celebrate Very Peri throughout 2022.
While the Very Peri trend will most definitely come and go within a single calendar year, it doesn’t hurt to spend a few dollars incorporating the trendiest color of the year into your home décor. Subtle yet impactful ways to add pops of this blue/purple hue to your home include throw pillows, hand towels, decorative soaps, fresh floral arrangements and wall art. Your kids can even incorporate Very Peri into their playrooms or bedrooms with some custom art they create themselves.
Plenty of flowers are lucky to share a similar color and hue with Very Peri, such as Lavender, Columbine and Hydrangea. When Spring 2022 arrives and you make your annual visit to the local nursery or garden center, consider the Pantone Color of the Year when it comes to making decisions on what to plant. By incorporating the color into your landscaping, visitors will notice the subtle connection to your new home accents as well.
Periwinkle isn’t a go-to clothing color for many, but that doesn’t mean you can’t incorporate the trendiest color of 2022 into your wardrobe in small ways. Look for clothing that uses periwinkle subtly, such as within graphics or logos. With custom, personalized clothing being an ultra-hot trend heading into the New Year, select graphics and color fonts that include the color – making your custom clothing even more on-trend. NamePress is one resource for personalized clothing where colors reminiscent of Very Peri are plentiful in thousands of graphics and font color choices.
Who doesn’t love a great set of stationery? Companies specializing in this industry know how to capitalize on Pantone’s Color of the Year, introducing monogrammed notecards, notebooks, beautiful bookmarks and stylish writing instruments quickly after Pantone’s annual selection is announced. Look for new products at your local stationery store, and make Very Peri a simple and beautiful addition to your office or writing nook.
Color adds vibrancy and beauty to our lives, so don’t be shy in celebrating Pantone’s Color of the Year by adding it to your life in small but meaningful ways. Whether it’s on your custom t-shirt or adding a pop of color to your living room, it’s a great way to stay current with trends and add some fun to your environment every year.
