  1. Pantone’s Colour of the Year 2022 : Very Peri

    Leave a Comment

    Every year the design industry wait in anticipation for the colour of year to be announced by Pantone, and this year feels very special indeed. 

    Not only has it been heralded as the ‘It’ colour for 2022, but Very Peri is in fact a brand new colour created by Pantone for the first time ever in the history of its Colour of the Year forecasts.

    Transformative Times

    ‘We are living in transformative times,’ say Pantone. ‘Very Peri is a symbol of the global zeitgeist of the moment and the transition we are going through. As we emerge from an intense period of isolation, our notions and standards are changing, and our physical and digital lives have merged in new ways.’

    Encouraging personal inventiveness and creativity, Pantone describe Very Peri as a ‘dynamic periwinkle blue hue with a vivifying violet red undertone’.

    Promoting Happiness and Positivity

    Very Peri has been described as ‘the happiest and warmest of all the blue hues’. With the challenges faced by everyone over the past couple of years, we think that anything that promotes happiness and positivity can only be a good thing.  

    In the home, Very Peri add fun and a sense of lightness to spaces, working well with both dark and light colour palettes. This versatile shade is suited to different materials, textures and finishes.

    Versital has two ideal options that work perfectly with Pantone’s Very Peri:


    A beautiful bold lavender marble with swirls of veins throughout.

    Lavender purple marble with clouds of veins Very Peri Pantone

    Perlato Penthouse

    A subtle off white classic marble with a nod to Veri Peri with veins of lavender swirled throughout.

    Off white marble with Purple veins

    Home Decor

    For the home opt for Versital in the bathroom by using it for vanity tops or even bathroom wall panels.  If you’re brave enough go all out with Penthouse, but for a more subtle nod Perlato Penthouse is ideal.  Pair with whites, darks or for real impact clash with Pinks and Mustards.

    Veri Peri in Hospitality

    Go bold with beautiful prints from Bobo 1325 with prints like ‘That’s the tea’ and ‘Blackmountain Brecon’. Available in both wallpapers and fabrics they make a real statement to walls or seating and soft furnishings.

    A World of unprecedented change

    “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 colour family.

    Encompassing the qualities of the blues, yet at the same time possessing a violet-red undertone, Very Peri displays a spritely, joyous attitude and dynamic presence that encourages courageous creativity and imaginative expression.”

  2. Top 5 Bathroom Trends for 2021

    Leave a Comment

    Go Bold and Stay Home

    Bathrooms are now less confined to clinical white, polished ceramic and a clean contemporary feel. Instead people are becoming more confident about going busy and bold in bathrooms and WC’s.

    1. Luxurious Styling

    As homeowners, we tend to use our bathrooms at least twice a day. Studies have shown that the average female spends at least 29 minutes in this space each day so it’s become a necessity to ensure that bathroom design delivers an at-home spa-like atmosphere so we can linger for longer.

    There are extensive ranges of luxurious showers and heads allowing the creation of an indulgent showering experience in your own home. Connection between water and wellbeing has never been easier with waterfall shower heads and walk-in showers to replace bulkier units.

    2. Greenery not just for the Garden

    In addition to luxury panels, Biophilia – the integration and inclusion of nature as a focal point – isn’t going anywhere.

    A biophilic bathroom design will boast certain patterns that reduce stress and improve creativity while featuring forms and materials that emulate those found in the great outdoors. Add greenery with plants, real or faux, soft furnishings or wallpaper.

    3. Fluted finishes

    Intricate surfaces have been given a contemporary twist in the bathroom. Add detail with edge details on tops, skirting or even dado.

    4. Warm earth and terracotta tones

    Embrace natural pigments to turn up the heat in your bathroom scheme.

    Alongside the mood for comfort comes the move towards warmer tones, including terracotta, rust, caramel and biscuit. Try contrasting them with black taps or a black basin to add definition.

    5. Marble still in the limelight

    Marble is definitely enjoying its moment in the limelight. You will still see plenty of bathrooms that being planned has some form of marble in it. ‘It is a beautiful natural looking material which comes in a wide variety of colourings, markings and veining’s.

    But remember, it doesn’t have to be real marble which can bring some problems with the natural material. Faux marble’s like Versital offer the option for the appearance of marble, whilst also being non porous and stain proof.

    People are being more adventurous with marble, incorporating greens, blues, pinks, basically anything a bit out of the ordinary to make their own mark.
