Now that 2022 is around the corner, just like every end of the year, we wait for Pantone, the color institute, to reveal the color of the year. And for 2022, Pantone chose the lovely color called "Very Peri".
Very Peri is a periwinkle hue that combines the tranquility of blue with the vibrancy and energy of the color red. What makes this color special is that for the first time the company has manufactured a color instead of choosing from their pre-existing archive.
"It was really important for us to come up with a new color because we have a very new vision of the world now," said Pantone Color Institute's Executive Director Leatrice Eiseman. "It is literally the happiest and the warmest of all the blue hues," she added, describing the Very Peri shade. "Because of that red undertone, it introduces an empowering feeling of newness, and newness is what we're looking for."
"We've gone through so many challenges over this time, we don't know what's going to pop up from one day to the next," said Pantone's Vice President Laurie Pressman. "It's curiosity that's helping people to get through these difficult times. What we would call courageous creativity."
"The color symbolizes the future," Eiseman adds. "(It) has that sprightly, joyous attitude that we're talking about, that carefree confidence, and creative spirit."
Very Peri is a dynamic periwinkle blue with a vibrant, violet-red undertone designed to evoke the glowing touchscreens of the digital world and the creative possibilities of the future.
When it comes to weddings, Very Peri is a very beautiful shade that can be used in every season, and in all wedding details from your wedding cake to your table linens.
