VERY PERI COLOUR OF THE YEAR 2022 PANTONE
And how to use it for Christmas decorating
The team at Pantone work all year round to forecast the next colour trend. The recent global climate has seen the rise and rise of the digital space; the working from home movement, an uptake in gaming popularity, increased awareness of digital currency and assets, to the introduction of the metaverse – Pantone’s Very Peri has emerged as a beacon and symbol of this digital world, a representation of this new age.
Leatrice Eiseman, the Executive Director of the Pantone Colour Institute, has described Very Peri as “…a spritely, joyous attitude and dynamic presence that encourages courageous creativity and imaginative expressions”. What is Christmas if not a time to bring some levity and imagination into our lives, to celebrate the year that has been and the excitement and unknown of what’s to come. This colour absolutely embodies the essence of the decorative spirit and festive season. Very Peri comes from the blue family, and has the warmth of red undertones. It reminds us of the colour of fresh seasonal berries and flora that blooms in this late stage of the year.
Introduce this whimsical colour into your own decorative style with glossy baubles on your tree, beautiful wrapping and ribbons on gifts under the tree, bunting on the walls, or beautiful table settings and decor. Fill your feasts with seasonal berries, add lavender and agapanthus cuttings to vases around your home, and accent your gift wraps with periwinkle ribbons.
