  • Very Peri is the colour of hope
  • Four complementary colour schemes to go along it
  • Applying them in your living space 

 Colours! There are so many of them, and at times, we just don’t know what to choose. This is especially true when it comes to interior design, where the colour of the sofa needs to match with the throw pillows and the wall paints, yada, yada, yada. Do you find that confusing? Oh, try this instead. Every year is defined by a different colour.

Interior design enthusiasts religiously deck their homes with the colours of the year, and it can be quite a hassle to follow the trend. Fortunately, the colour for the year 2022 is Very Peri, and I have to say that it is a very lovely colour. No complaints here.

What is Very Peri?

For those who love blue and purple, this is your lucky day…or year, because it is vogue! Then again, who determines what is vogue and what is not? Well, every year, worldwide colour authority Pantone picks the colour that will be making headlines in the coming season.

Very Peri, a vibrant periwinkle blue colour with a rich violet-red undertone, has been crowned Colour of the Year 2022. But why? According to Pantone, Very Peri is a reminder to embrace the altered landscape and trust in the future possibilities. Is it just me, or does it sound like the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic influenced the colour choice? Do share with us your thoughts!

I’m going with Very Peri. Bring out the paint now!

Sold on the colour already? Great. But just because you love purple and blue does not mean that you are going to turn the entire home into a Petunia. Balance is required. For example, if you are going for a black and white colour scheme, then a black sofa will make for a wonderful companion to the white wall.

White bed sheets go well with a black bed and black tables to white plates. You get the idea. Now, how about Very Peri? Well, Pantone is a saviour itself. They didn’t just produce one, but four sets of colour compliments to match with Very Peri. Each represents different moods, and they also come with an easy-to-follow colour harmony bar for your consultation. Check them out below:

You can never go wrong when mixing neutrals, which express an aura of warmth and peace. Stepping into this house, I would notice the Very Peri sofa right away, which is appropriate since the colour combo was called The Star Of The Show! While you are at it, I am taking a seat.

The purple from the wall, bedsheets and blankets bring a cool touch to the bedroom, facilitating slumber. This is balanced out by the vibrancy of yellow from the wood and flowers. Chef kiss! It is a treat to sleep and awaken in such a room!

Hope blooms at a time of crisis. It is a desire to see the end of pain and suffering. Hope is needed more than ever with the Covid-19 pandemic spreading unchecked outside our doors. And the Very Peri is here to remind us that hope is still alive.
