Pantone unveilved their official color for 2022 a few weeks back, a gorgeous shade of purple called Very Peri. They say of their choice:

“Displaying a carefree confidence and a daring curiosity that animates our creative spirit, inquisitive and intriguing PANTONE 17-3938 Very Peri helps us to embrace this altered landscape of possibilities, opening us up to a new vision as we rewrite our lives. Rekindling gratitude for some of the qualities that blue represents complemented by a new perspective that resonates today, PANTONE 17-3938 Very Peri places the future ahead in a new light.”

They go on to cite the transformative times in which we live, emerging from isolation, and trends in both the physical and digitals worlds that inspired the choice.

We happen to think Very Peri is a fantastic choice, and one we’ll be proudly displaying in our homes and on our bodies for months to come in 2022–especially spring, when this color will look right at home among the rebirth of nature and sunshine.

For now, we’ve chosen ten items to wear, carry, and use in your home in Very Peri (and the closest shades we could find like it) that we think you’ll also love. Keep reading to find your favorites rendered beautifully in our newest color crush.
