Pantone’s Color of the Year announcement is always highly anticipated, and this year was no different. But unlike previous years, the 2022 Color of the Year came with a few extra surprises.
For one, Very Peri, Pantone’s 2022 Color of the Year, is a vibrant periwinkle with a violet-red undertone in a sea of soothing greens. Sherwin-Williams, Benjamin Moore, Behr, Valspar and Glidden have all selected a tranquil shade of green for their 2022 color of the year. After a year or two of turmoil, people have naturally gravitated to the soothing yet uplifting qualities of green. And while the year ahead seems more promising than those past, people are still in need of green’s calming effects.
Pantone, however, felt that its spirited shade of blue was a better reflection of the transformations happening around the world. And to best reflect this momentous transitional period, Pantone surprised us for a second time: for the first time in its 23-year history, the Color of the Year was not selected from Pantone’s vast color catalogue but designed specifically for 2022.
Designed not only to inspire creativity and the exploration of new perspectives, Very Peri was also created to seamlessly transition between our digital and physical lives. The hue is inspired by tones prominent in online gaming and digital art, but also serves as an energizing complement within your home and wardrobe.
