    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:
