Color of the Year 2022: Very Peri

02/08/2022 |

Fanciful, vibrant and dynamic: the Pantone Color Institute has chosen “Very Peri” as its Color of the Year 2022. The radiant colour is reminiscent of a bluish lilac, spreading good cheer. “Very Peri displays a spritely, joyous attitude and dynamic presence that encourages courageous creativity and imaginative expressions,” says Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute on the Institute’s website. For us, Very Peri is an exciting blended colour shade that sparks our creativity. Let’s mix a splendid bluish violet together!



Lilac with a blue undertone

At the first glance, Very Peri looks like a light violet shade. The colour makes us think of the KREUL Chalky paint Pure Purple and SOLO GOYA Triton Acrylic in Lilac. Other KREUL colour shades like Mallow or Violet are also reminiscent of the Color of the Year 2022. If you look more closely at Very Peri, you’ll discover a lot of blue as the basic shade. So it’s very practical that you can easily mix KREUL paints. If you want to make Lilac a little more bluish, just add a little blue to reveal a new facet of this good-mood colour.

Full of creativity and dynamic spirit

Fancy some more colour creations in cool bluish violet? Then we recommend a mix of water, Magenta and Indigo Blue of the SOLO GOYA Aqua Paint Marker. Wonderful how the original colours blur into a feminine purple shade. If you want to use this exciting colour as a highlight on canvas, mix SOLO GOYA Triton Acrylic Ultramarine Blue with White and a little Carmine. The vibrant bluish violet radiates power, but appears mystical at the same time. Spirituality and profundity are also associated with purple colours. Unlike like a light blue shade, Very Peri is therefore shrouded in an aura of extravagance. We see violet shades as a fantastic splash of colour in the grey every day. It appeals to our senses, inspires courage and boosts energy.

Stylish eye-catcher and soft mood-maker

Cool bluish violet shades like Very Peri can be combined to reveal many different effects. Next to neutral colours like black, white or grey, it surges forcefully to the fore. So you can use bluish-violet accessories like vases, plant pots or cushion covers to get instant and stylish highlights in your home. Alongside light green, violet shades bring a burst of spring into your home.
