Pantone’s 2022 Color of the Year

If you’ve purchased one of the new homes in Montgomery County PA from WB Homes, you could be ready to start choosing the interior colors and finishes and all of the fun elements that turn a house into your own personal home. Pantone is famous for coming up with THE color of the year each year. You may just want to include it in your own brand new home!

Each year, a panel of experts explores what’s happening in art, entertainment, culture, and the world around us. They take all of that information and determine a color that represents what the new year is likely to mean for a lot of people or what we’ll need in our lives. This year, the color of 2022 is Very Peri. As its name suggests, the color has a periwinkle tone with hints of lavender, thanks to the blend of blue and red in the color. Perhaps the calming aspect of lavender plays a part in helping soothe our worries and gives us peace and a sense of calm.

According to Pantone, Very Peri is meant to help us “embrace this altered landscape of possibilities, opening us up to a new vision as we rewrite our lives.” A positive and cheerful color, it offers “a carefree confidence and a daring curiosity that animates our creative spirit.”

Additionally, the company is looking to the digital world and the variety of ways of expressing ourselves and life through all things digital, leading them to create a brand new color. According to Laurie Pressman, vice president of the Pantone Color Institute, “Creating a new color for the first time in the history of our Pantone Color of the Year educational color program reflects the global innovation and transformation taking place.”

As Pantone continued to explain in their announcement of the color: 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.”

Whether you are looking to the color to express a new stage of life or just want to decorate your home with a fresh new color, Very Peri is an excellent color that offers a wealth of options in mixing with other colors. It adds an easy pop of color in more neutral rooms, such as multiple depths of warm sandy tones with Very Peri used to bring out a more lively feeling. It also works well with the numerous green colors that many other paint and color companies put forward as their own color of the year,

As you pick out the finishing colors of your new homes in Montgomery County PA from WB Homes, consider adding in the cheerful Very Peri. It’s bright and cheerful, but not overwhelming, offering a variety of uses throughout your new home.
