Pantone Color of the Year: Meet Very Peri
Freshly read in the Coldwell Banker Global Luxury Blog – Luxury Home & Style. Creating a new color for the first time in the history of our Pantone Color of the Year educational color program reflects the global innovation and transformation taking place,” said Laurie Pressman, Vice President of the Pantone Color Institute.
It reads: Periwinkle is a trailing plant used as groundcover and featuring blooms in lavender
blue. Periwinkle is also the name of Tinkerbell’s sister in Disney lore. And now, periwinkle is the inspiration for Pantone’s 2022 Color of the Year.
PANTONE 17-3938 Very Peri is a striking periwinkle blue hue with a “vivifying violet red undertone” that creates an “empowering mix of newness,” said Pantone. In fact, the 2022 choice breaks the Color of the Year mold in this regard; instead of drawing from Pantone’s extensive color catalog, the company came up with something entirely new for 2022.
