How to style your home with Pantone’s 2022 Colour of the Year
2022 Pantone’s Colour of the Year is a brand new from scratch PANTONE 17-3938 Very Peri. Described as encompassing the qualities of the blues, yet at the same time possessing a violet-red undertone Very Peri displays a spritely, joyous attitude and dynamic presence that encourages courageous creativity and imaginative expression. For 23 years, Pantone’s Colour of the year has influenced product developing and purchasing in multiple industries, including fashion, home furnishings, and industrial design.
To bring this shade into your interior for 2022 we recommend a variety of designs such as bold statement piece walls and furniture or a subtle minimalist approach with small accessories and art bringing a splash of colour and creative atmosphere into any room. Read on for more ideas on how to bring Very Peri into your home this year.
- Statement Walls
Start with the carefree and confident spirit by going bold and painting your walls. This illustrates the future of modern life and creates a new imaginative perspective to suit the theme for 2022. Other connotations of this purple shade include luxury, wisdom and creativity. Perfect for uplifting the mood whilst keeping a calm and relaxing atmosphere drawn from Very Peri’s soothing qualities.
Areas of the home we would recommend to splash out in this colour would include entrances and hallways for an inviting and welcoming touch. Living rooms, offices and reading areas for a quiet tranquil hideaway. Or bathrooms and vanity areas could pair Very Peri walls with bright white tones and compliment with plants for a clean, fresh and flowery look.
A simple approach to bring small hints of Very Peri into the home include decorating with art, textiles and accessories. Adding patterned cushions and rugs into rooms create a bright contrast against the shades of walls and furniture and allow an easier way change the look and the feel without investing a large amount of money and risk. This is also ideal for those daring to be different to pair patterns with the undertones of purple for an eccentric design.
Other décor and accessories including wall art, ornaments and candles contribute to the blue and red undertones of the Pantone colour allowing the option to be dynamic with your choice of furnishings. Plants can also be a great choice to bring the outdoor inside and contrast the natural environment with the futuristic colour. Look for lavender to compliment the blue tones or green leafy indoor plants to stand out against the purple shades.
- Palette Exploration
Pantone’s palette exploration feature presents the best shades to use alongside Very Peri. In this palette “The Star of the Show” neutral tones are used to allow the opposing shade to stand out. These beiges, stones and monochromes are the perfect background colours. Described by Pantone as ‘classics and neutrals whose essence of elegance and understated stylishness convey a message of timeless sophistication.’ We would recommend pairing this as an item of furniture against the purple tones. For example, our Windsor, Verona, Nicole and Malmo ranges would bring luxury, elegance and comfort to the living room.
A different palette choice is “Balancing Act” which is complementary with natural warm and cool tones to support and enhance each other and injects a feeling of liveliness and visual vibration. This can be paired with our Rupert range in mauve velvet as another splash of colour and broadens the creative and artistic styles for the interior. This can then be decorated with cushions and throws of the Very Peri colour alongside other furnishings of shades from the palette.
In conclusion, there are many creative ways to introduce Very Peri into your home as long as it is paired with the right furniture and interior accessories. Don’t forget to take a look at the sofas we recommended to compliment Pantone’s Colour of the Year.
