Last year Pantone wowed us with two colors of the year for 2021, as if they (like us) had no idea what the new year might hold. They introduced a steadfast gray and a cheery yellow, meeting our dual needs for stability and hope. Now, the trend-setting brand has released their Pantone “Color of the Year” for 2022: Very Peri.
Very Peri is a glorious periwinkle-inspired mix of deep blue and vibrant purple, lighter than either color alone. It’s a moody hue. It reminds us of the color of the sky right after a soul-shaking storm has passed, when the thunder and lighting have died down but you’re not sure if it’s safe to go outside yet.
If colors tell a story, then the tale being told by Very Peri might be that there’s beauty even in the storm. Where else would you see Mother Nature put on such a show? Very Peri gathers us close and tells us that the worst is over and the sun is about to come out.
