The 2022 Pantone Color of the Year is called Very Peri! It’s a joyful, dynamic color that integrates tones of soothing blue, with soothing violet-red undertones. It’s meant to evoke creativity and imaginative expression. (Nobody asked me, but that seems like a lot of pressure to put on a color, just sayin’! 😂)
The 2022 Pantone Color of the Year
For 23 years, Pantone’s Color of the Year has influenced product development and purchasing decisions in industries, like fashion and home furnishings, as well as product packaging and graphic design. 2022 is the first year Pantone created a custom color to use as the Color of the Year.
Today I’m going to share with you some ways to integrate this vibrant color into your life, fashion, and home decor. You’ll be seeing it more and more often as the year goes on, so get ready!
“The Pantone Color of the Year reflects what is taking place in our global culture, expressing what people are looking for that color can hope to answer. Creating a new color for the first time in the history of our Pantone Color of the Year educational color program reflects the global innovation and transformation taking place. As society continues to recognize color as a critical form of communication, and a way to express and affect ideas and emotions and engage and connect, the complexity of this new red violet infused blue hue highlights the expansive possibilities that lay before us”.Laurie Pressman, Vice President of the Pantone Color Institute
I find very peri to be somewhat calming but with a touch of energy. It was actually a popular kitchen color several decades ago (see these vintage periwinkle Pyrex dishes I found with just a simple Etsy search!), so it has a timeless aura.
How to Style the Pantone 2022 Color of the Year in Your Home
For an easy way to update your yard this year, opt for periwinkle pansies or vinca!
When it comes to the kitchen and dining room, there are lots of beautiful options! Check out these placemats, food steamer, and this beautiful stand mixer in Very Peri! I love these beautiful stemless wine glasses and this fun Pantone coffee mug.
You’ll rugs that incorporate the Pantone 2022 Color of the Year. I love the machine-washable rugs from Ruggable, and several of them feature touches of lavender and periwinkle, including the Chrysanthemum Brights Rug, Urbano Lilac Rug, Esra Polychrome Rug, and (my favorite) Suzani Purple Rug.

Veri Peri has cool undertones, so it may not look the best on those of you with warmer undertones. (To read my post on 5 Ways To Figure Out Your Skin’s Undertone & Your Best Makeup Shades, click HERE.) If you have cool undertones, you’re good to do. If you have warm undertones, just don’t wear Very Peri right up by your face, or incorporate it into your accessories instead.
I love this quilted short jacket, and if you’re thinking about updating your workout wear, check out the huge Very Peri selection at Athleta. You’ll find sweaters, tees, and PJs, plus lots more! Check out this amazing selection on Amazon. It’s where I found the tee I’m wearing in the images in this post!

Since I’m there to relax a little and spend time with family, I’m not sure how much I’ll be posting! As I shared with you in THIS post, I’m trying to avoid the burnout I struggled with last year by doing a better job of taking time off, so thank you for bearing with me! I’ll still be posting on Instagram and Facebook, so be sure you’re following me! (Especially if you are in need of a little beach scenery right now!) If you want to keep up with me, my IG & FB Stories are the best place to do it!
