Pantone colour of the year – How to decorate with Very Peri

  • 17 August 2022

Every year, Pantone announces their ‘Colour of the Year’, a colour that is selected based on trends in society, culture and travel. This year’s colour is Very Peri, a combination of blue with a violet red undertone. Pantone have expressed that this new colour has a courageous presence and encourages personal inventiveness and creativity!

Very Peri is a symbol of the global zeitgeist and the transition we are going through as we emerge from an intense period of isolation. It’s a striking and daring colour which has the potential to create a major statement in the home for those who are brave enough to embrace it! Take a look at our top tips on how to approach Very Peri.

1. Add a feature wall
Possibly the most courageous way to include Very Peri in your home would be to consider adding in a feature wall. This peaceful and comforting colour would work well in your living room or bedroom, neutralised by lighter, clean colours such as creams and whites.
If you’re a real maximalist who is unafraid to try something completely out of the ordinary, why not go for something super bold like this incredible Very Peri flower wallpaper from Happy Wall?!

2. Make use of statement items
A chair, a sofa, a cabinet, whatever it might be, a statement piece is a great entry-level way to embrace the Very Peri colour trend. The richness of the colour is sure to capture attention in any room!


3. Accessorise!
If you love the colour but you’re not ready to embrace it on such a large scale, accessories are your best friend! Try some on-trend twisted candles, cushions and throws, prints, vases or even just some flowers!
