Pantone recently unveiled its 2022 Pantone Color of the Year!

Since 2000, Pantone annually announces its color of the year to engage the design community and people around the world with color. But for the first time, this year, Pantone created its own color of the year instead of selecting one that already existed. After a yearlong process of research and trends, Pantone announced PANTONE 17-3938 Very Peri as its 2022 color of the year.

According to Pantone, Very Peri is “A new Pantone color whose courageous presence encourages personal inventiveness and creativity.” Since this is a color that was invented recently, we’ve put together some of the ways you could apply Very Peri to any interior space, using some examples from our own designs.

1. WALLS

A Very Peri wall color will draw attention to any room, create instant character, and make a space more dynamic. More importantly, the color also helps spark creativity and boosts people’s mood.

2. CARPET FLOORING

Very Peri is an ideal color to have in a carpet that has a pattern like the one we installed for our Bayshore Villas affordable housing project. This is because the color acts as an intriguing eye-catching accent.
