How to Incorporate 2022’s Color of the Year into Your Home Decor

Every year Pantone chooses a color that reflects the current trends and happenings of the world. Color experts research new color influences within the entertainment industry, art and fashion collections, all areas of design, popular travel destinations, new lifestyles, as well was socio-economic conditions. For 23 years, Pantone’s Color of the Year has influenced product development and purchasing decisions in the fashion, home furnishing, industrial and graphic design industries.

For the first time ever, Pantone’s Color of the Year was created as opposed to being chosen from their arsenal of colors.

“As we move into a world of unprecedented change, the selection of PANTONE 17-3938 Very Peri brings a novel perspective and vision of the trusted and beloved blue color family, encompassing the qualities of the blues, yet at the same time with its violet red undertone, Very Peri displays a spritely, joyous attitude and dynamic presence that encourages courageous creativity and imaginative expressions,” said Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute.

A representation of the possibilities that digital design has brought to the realm of color, Very Peri is the fusion between the modern world and how color trends in the digital world are being manifested in the physical world. So how do you manifest 2022’s Color of the Year into your home décor? We’ve compiled several accent decorations to help you stay ahead of the trend that Very Peri is sure to bring.
