What is The Pantone Color of The Year for 2022 - Come See

Do you ever wander over to the Pantone website? If not, be sure to take a minute and check it out. It's filled with excellent advice about color combinations for almost every aspect of living.

Annually, Pantone selects  a color of the year that reflects "our global culture, expressing what people are looking for, that color can hope to answer."  - Quote by

 Congratulations to Very-Peri (17-3938)

According to Pantone, this combination of periwinkle blue with violet-red undertones reflects these transformative times. Color is an absolute in the creative digital space we find ourselves living in. Blue combined with violet-red is Pantone's choice for a year trending towards joyous, emotional, and creative expression.

Here's a brief video featured by Pantone with their chosen color, Very-Peri:

If You're Looking to Create This Color Via HTML Color Codes, Here is the Code

The HTML code for Very-Peri is #6667ab. If you create online graphics for any particular purpose and want to use Pantone's color choice for 2022, you'll need this code.

Don't confuse the Pantone color number 17-3938 for the HTML color code. As mentioned above, the HTML color code is #6667ab. I quickly created the main photo above using this code.

My Own Personal Opinion on Very-Peri

Violets and purples are some of my favorite colors, especially for bedroom decor. It seems to never go out of style. 

Very-Peri combines violet-red with blue to produce a soft color, yet one that evokes a courageous mood due to the hidden undertones of red.

Personally, I would combine Very-Peri with yellows or grays for a guest room or our primary bedroom. Another great space for this color is the home office, especially for those working in a field that demands some level of creative thinking - isn't that all fields? 

The thing to remember with color, any color, is "flow." Does the color flow with the overall decor theme of your home? For larger homes, changing colors from room to room is manageable; however, smaller spaces often present a challenge. If you're painting a small home or apartment, staying within the same shades is a safe way to approach your wall colors. Let the drapes, furniture, and accessories introduce the contrast and pattern.

Have fun with color because color IS fun.

  1. Okay I got a comment box....something is "wrong" with blogger this morning. But I love the color for 2022. It seems that it follows a lot of people's moods, blue, yet with a tinge of hope (adding those red undertones)! Hopefully this new year will see us enjoying everything including this color of the year.

  2. Wow! For me I find this color to be very calming and appealing. I'm the worst at matching colors for home décor so I always rely on some online help and your articles for help. Thanks Barbara.

  3. Barbara, I have always loved your Pantone Color of the Year posts and look forward to them each January. Aside from home décor, I actually use the information you provide in choosing yarn colors for my crocheted cuties. It assures me of being up-to-date in my color choices of what might appeal to buyers. Besides, plush animals are fantasy, so can be any color they want! :)

    1. What a great idea to use them in your crochet projects <3

  4. Love the color of the year and it would pair good with my favorite color yellow!

  5. I love this color! The very-peri is lovely and I could easily imagine using it in a bedroom as you recommended and yes, I could imagine using the yellow as the perfect complimentary color. Sure wish I had that home office you referenced. I would be buying very-peri paint today!

  6. I do love this Veri-Peri colour, such a beautiful look! To me it seems lovely and calming and with enough energy to make it interesting. Yes I agree it would be perfect in a home office or a bedroom. Thank you for this review.

  7. My first career right out of college was in fashion retailing and private-label product design, so I’ve followed Pantone’s Color of the Year avidly since I was in my early twenties. I love all shades of purple and Very-Peri really appeals to me. In fact, I’m wearing it on my nails right now!

    Thanks very much for the html hex color code for this shade. You’re so thoughtful!

    1. your nails are outstanding! I love your recent color choice in the very-peri family - Pantone is filled with such great info on color
