Very Peri: 2022 Pantone Color Of The Year
2022 is here and with every new year comes the global color authority’s announcement of the Pantone color that best depicts the year ahead. After thoughtful consideration and thorough trend analysis, the company decided to create a brand new shade instead of choosing an existing one. So what’s this newly-debuted color? It’s none other than Very Peri, a periwinkle blue hue with a violet red undertone, “the happiest and warmest of all the blue hues” says Pantone, and a color that symbolizes transition and new possibilities.
As described by Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, “It was really important for us to come up with a new color, because we have a very new vision of the world now. 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.”
Showcasing carefree confidence, daring curiosity, and bold enthusiasm, Very Peri uniquely combines the consistency and stability that characterizes blue with the excitement and never-ending energy of red to create a harmonious blend of freshness and novelty.
Displaying a vivacious, upbeat demeanor and a dynamic character that fosters creativity, innovation, and imaginative expression, Very Peri is the ultimate color to symbolize the transformative times we live in and humanity’s effort to move past the isolation and the uncertainty of the pandemic. It is the ideal hue to help us rebuild our lives, accept the new reality, and open up to new opportunities and possibilities. The blue shade also reminds us of the blue glow of digital devices like our computers and smartphones, symbolizing the progressive transitioning of human existence to the digital realm.
We’re excited about the 2022 color of the year and what it stands for, and can’t wait to include it in our 2022 events. Whether you’re planning a marriage proposal or a micro-wedding in Greece, a baptism, or a private dinner party you simply can’t go wrong with Very Peri and the vibrant ambiance it creates – it will bring your special occasion to life!
Very Peri is paired well with several colors, including nudes, beiges, pastel hues like yellow, peach, lilac, or soft pink, burgundy, green, and metallics, such as gold; it is also very verstille and complements any style. If you are planning a romantic proposal on a Greek island, for example, consider using Very Peri with pastel shades and ceil blue to match the clear Mediterranean sky. For a moody aesthetic, opt for a bold color combination, a major 2022 trend, pairing Very Peri with plum and burgundy tones, as well as a touch of sage green. Last but not least, if you’re going for a timeless elegance look, consider using crisp whites and golden accents.
Very Peri’s optimism inspires regeneration and new beginnings – get in touch with us and let’s look at the plethora of stylish ways to incorporate this exciting new color into your next event. We always seek combinations and color palettes that represent your distinctive style and personality!
