Color Coordination

Very Peri will bring a refreshing sense of liveliness into homes. Bold colors are already taking over 2022, it’s time to pair them with Very Peri, but what colors work best? From deep blues to more muted whites and greys, Very Peri is more versatile than you might think.
For a fresher and cleaner look try pairing Very Peri with white. Make sure to keep white as the more dominant color with Very Peri as more of an accent. This will prevent your space from feeling like a candy shop.

An easy way to incorporate Pantone’s new color of the year is by pairing it with neutrals. Both beige and Very Peri are colors that can help balance a room and work well together. If your home already has a lot of neutrals in it, try adding some purple accents like a glass vase.
Because blue is the primary color in Very Peri, they complement each other well. In your home, use purple as the base color and work blues into accessories like bedding or a rug.

Color Drenching

Color drenching is a bold trend in interior design this year. This trend involves taking one color and using different shades of it throughout a space. Think walls, furniture, and accents all being a similar color. You can even include the ceiling when color drenching, but walls are a great place to start when it comes to choosing a color.
