I am filled with cheer to share Pantone’s 2022 Color of the Year. Veri Peri – a very Happy periwinkle blue to ring in a Happy New Year! Blue is such a versatile color that can bring so many moods depending on the tone. Yes, we always hear of blue being a moody color – hence, the “Monday Blues” – but it can be cheerful, exciting and comforting.
“Next year’s Very Peri symbolizes the changes the world is experiencing as we look to move beyond the isolation and uncertainty of the pandemic.
The color is the “happiest and warmest of all the blue hues,” blending the “faithfulness and constancy of blue with the energy and excitement of red” to deliver an “empowering mix of newness” with a “carefree confidence and a daring curiosity that animates our creative spirit,” said the company
To a new year and a new hue!
