Pantone Colour of the Year 2022

Posted 24/3/2022

I'm a little late in sharing this with you, how is it March already?! But today I thought I'd share Pantone's colour of the year for 2022.

I love Pantone’s website for exploring new colours and checking shades of different colours, and this is also a fab way to see which colour will be (or they predict will be) 'on trend' each year. The Pantone experts carry out extensive research around the world, looking for new colour influences in all areas of design, art collections, fashion, the entertainment industry, popular travel destinations, new technology, materials, textures, social media platforms and upcoming sporting events.

Did you know that Pantone pick a 'colour of the year' each year? Pantone’s colour of the year for 2022 is called ‘Very Peri’ and they say ‘its courageous presence encourages personal inventiveness and creativity’. 

This is what Pantone say about PANTONE 17-3938 Very Peri:

‘A symbol of the global zeitgeist of the moment and the transition we are going through. As we emerge from an intense period of isolation, our notions and standards are changing, and our physical and digital lives have merged in new ways. Digital design helps us to stretch the limits of reality, opening the door to a dynamic virtual world where we can explore and create new colour possibilities… Very Peri illustrates the fusion of modern life and how colour trends in the digital world are being manifested in the physical world and vice versa.’

Pantone describe the colour as being part of the ‘beloved blue family’ with ‘violet red undertones’, giving a new perspective on the colour blue whilst we’re living in unprecedented times. What do you think? What does this colour say to you? Head over to Pantone’s website for more info.


Here are the colours Pantone have shared each year, dating back to 2000! Last year they chose two colours, you can read more about those if you scroll back through my blogs to find last year's post. Which is your favourite colour/year? Head over to my social media where I'd love to hear your thoughts!
