Drumroll, please... Pantone's colour of the year 2022 has finally been revealed as 'Very Peri', a warm blue with calming violet-red undertones that encourages personal inventiveness and creativity. A unique colour that’s like no other.

Pantone’s executive director, Leatrice Eiseman, said, "As we move into a world of unprecedented change, the selection of PANTONE 17-3938 Very Peri brings a novel perspective and vision of the trusted and beloved blue colour family".

For the first time in History, Pantone has created a brand-new colour that symbolises transformation, confidence and imagination, as we move into a new year of 'unexpected change'. It's the first time ever for Pantone to create a new shade for its colour of the year, and we have to say we are pretty impressed!

Very Peri Palettes and Our Floors 

“Very Peri blends the faithfulness and constancy of blue with the energy and excitement of red to introduce an empowering mix of newness to apparel, beauty, home furnishings, product design, and packaging”. The soft yet vibrant shade of Very Peri works great with a variety of colour palettes matched with our floors. Let’s take a look.
