Pantone Institute – a color-loving organization
The American Pantone Institute was founded in 1963 on the initiative of Lawrence Herbert. He created an innovative method of developing, identifying and matching colors – the Pantone Matching System. Shades are written using numbers, which also take into account such features as metallicity and fluorescence. As a result, the colors are not created when mixing inks during printing on the surface (as in the CMYK scale). The certain uniformity of the Pantone scale means that the color printout will always look the same. The company has gained great recognition all over the world. All the publications of the Pantone Institute are currently considered to be one of the most important sources of information about colors.
Very Peri – the color of the year 2022
Every year, the Pantone Institute’s team of experts chooses a color that will be at the forefront of all trends, both interior design and fashion. After last year’s set of two shades – Illuminating and Ultimated Grey – symbolizing resistance, but also optimism and hope, so necessary in times of pandemics, it’s time for one color. For the 23rd edition, Very Peri 17-3938 was chosen based on research and analysis. According to the company, the combination of a blue-violet hue with a touch of warm red, alluding to the periwinkle flower, is meant to unleash the artistic soul, stimulate creativity and ingenuity, symbolize global transformation after a period of isolation, boost self-confidence, as well as refer to the artistic, virtual world.
How to arrange an interior with a Very Peri shade?
The presented blue-violet shade, despite its calmness, may be too dominant in excess. Nevertheless, with its use, we have many possibilities for unique styling. In addition to the traditional covering of an entire wall or part of it with paint, Very Peri is also worth using while stenciling decorative details, such as ‘Mandala’. A stencil pattern imitating tiles, such as ‘Valetta’, will also look great in this color, especially on a white or gray background. Very Peri can also be introduced with accessories to interior design. Vases, pillows, bed covers or any other textiles will liven up subdued, pastel rooms, especially in the bedroom and living room, which will be a peaceful and comfortable place to relax.
Which colors can you combine with Very Peri?
The ideal combination for Very Peri will be neutral white, with which the blue-violet color will be perfectly exposed and catch the eye. On the other hand, the white of accessories for rooms painted in this year’s color will give the interior artistry and elegance. Different shades of yellow or gold combined with Very Peri will be a modern combination suitable for many interiors. Black and gray of the glamor style with the described color will create a unique arrangement. This makes Very Peri a definite answer to the needs of various decorating trends.
