    Need a little design or decor inspiration? Look no further than Pantone’s unique 2022 color of the year: Very Peri.

    A playful purple-ish periwinkle, Very Peri offers up “carefree confidence and a daring curiosity,” according to Pantone. It’d be great as an accent tone, on furnishings, and even as a wall color (maybe in a playroom, a nursery, or somewhere else with some whimsy?)

    If purple’s not your favorite, there are countless other “colors of the year” you can look to for guidance. (Hint: Most of them are green or blue). 

    Here are just a few of the non-Very Peri colors you can choose from:

    October Mist by Benjamin Moore

    Benjamin Moore’s 2022 color of the year is called October Mist, a greyish green with a more muted feel than Very Peri. Think of it as this year’s slate — a great color to combine with other, bolder hues. It’d be particularly stunning on cabinets.

    Evergreen Fog by Sherwin Williams

    This one’s an even more muted green — almost a pastel with the right pairing. It goes well with wood tones and white and would be especially appealing in bathrooms, studies, and other more calming parts of the house.

    Valspar’s wide-ranging choices

    Valspar went with several hues, ranging from a rich dark blue called Mountain River to a plethora of perky peaches and yellows. There’s even a greyish black that would make for great accents.

    Breezeway by Behr

    Want a little pick-me-up? This minty fresh color is a great choice. It pairs well with classic white, cream, tan, brass, and even Very Peri too. 

    Art and Craft by Dunn Edwards

    If you’re looking for something different than all the rest, Art and Craft might be it. This pale rust color offers a more vintage look than the others on this list, and it looks great with heavier, richer fabrics too. It could even look great as an exterior tone, too — on shutters, the garage, or the front door, maybe.

    Paying for Very Peri updates
