Pantone is known for their 20-year tradition of selecting an official color to set the tone and mood for the year’s design trends. While 2021 was marked by the unique selection of two colors—Ultimate Gray and Illuminating—this year Pantone has gone a very different route.

Pantone announced the choice of Very Peri (PANTONE 17-3938) as their official 2022 Color of the Year. This periwinkle hue is fresh and cool, representing creativity and complexity. This color is a brand-new creation, and the first time that one has been created for Pantone’s annual Color of the Year.

In the announcement, Pantone’s Vice President Laurie Pressman states, “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.” Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute describes Very Peri as “a novel perspective and vision of the trusted and beloved blue color family” with “a spritely, joyous attitude and dynamic presence.”

A soft, soothing blue tone like Very Peri can be a beautiful wall color choice in a bedroom, bathroom, or living area. Use it as an accent color along with a more neutral-toned tile like our Flash White for a dynamic look, or paint a baby nursery in this joyful hue for something different than the usual blue or pink.

Tile Colors That Complement Very Peri

If you plan to use Very Peri or a similar color in your home’s color palette, you may be looking for tile that complements purple and blue tones. From other bold colors to modern neutral tones, let’s take a look at some tile that would look perfect alongside Very Peri.

Soft pastels provide a sweet and charming balance when paired with a cool purple tone like periwinkle. Our Gioia tile series has several options that would work well here. Colors like bone, aqua, and sky offer a light, chic, and sophisticated look.

Timeless neutral colors like gray, taupe, and white also complement Pantone’s Color of the Year. Porcelain tile such as Faro, Ardesia, or Icon is a subtle yet complementary counterpart to Very Peri’s brighter tone. With soft patterns that won’t compete visually with vivid color, these options help create balance in a room that features Very Peri.

Another natural complement to a purplish-blue color like Very Peri is gold. For an elegant impact, use Very Peri to bring out the gold tones in a marble or marble-look tile.
