Finally, the long-awaited end of year announcement for color nerds has arrived! Pantone has declared Very Peri — an intriguing shade that encompasses the qualities of blues while holding on to violet-red undertones — 2022’s color of the year. Forgoing the tradition of selecting an existing hue as Color of the Year, Pantone’s Very Peri was deliberately created to represent personal inventiveness and creativity through the complexity of reds, violets and blues.

Pantone Color Institute’s Vice President Laurie Pressman says, “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. Very Peri displays a spritely, joyous attitude and dynamic presence that encourages courageous creativity and imaginative expression”.
