Have a "Very Peri" 2022 with Pantone's Color of the Year

The faithfulness of blue with the energy and excitement of red. Meet “Very Peri”—Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2022. (If you’ve not heard of Pantone or aren’t sure what all the fuss is about—the Pantone Color System was created in 1963 to solve the problem of complicated color matching in the printing industry. Today, the system has become the go-to color matching system for designers.)

The designers at FastFrame always pay close attention to Pantone’s unveiling of the color of the year, as their choice often sets trends in a variety of industries for the remainder of the year. And from mats to frames, color is very important in the custom framing world. The announcement always feels timely as we begin to move into a new season and our spaces begin to feel a bit dull as holiday decorations are packed away. 

So now that the new year has arrived, there’s no better time to refresh your home with this very dynamic pop of color. We seem to be moving through a world of unprecedented change, so the futuristic feeling of Very Peri would do well permeating your home decor. Read on for room-by-room-ideas that are sure to feel distinct with each application of Very Peri in various materials, finishes, and textures.


Very Peri Bedroom

Blue is a great color for the bedroom, as it does so much to relax us as we prepare for sleep. However, if your blue bedroom is feeling a little boring or cold, warm it up a bit with this new shade! If you’re not sure about committing to a paint color, start by adding some new Very Peri pillow shams or a duvet for the bed. As you fall more in love with the shade, come see us at FastFrame. We’re envisioning a trio of black and white photographs above the bed. The mat color? Very Peri, of course! Our experts will walk you through making any bold color choice to make sure it’s the right decision for your project.


Very Peri Bathroom

Give otherwise everyday items like towels, bathmats, and shower curtains a bright new look with this Pantone color. The bathroom is such an easy place to add a pop of color, as most fixtures and tiles are neutral. Try adding some Very Peri vases or containers to your bathroom shelves to dress them up a bit. You could even get out the paint roller if you’re in love with the color as much as we are! Accent walls can go up pretty quickly in the bathroom!

Very Peri Living Room

Update that shiplap wall in the living room for 2022! This color would look great as a whole room or even just an accent wall if you’re not ready for such a commitment. We’re in love with the bold tables in the photo above, as well as how well this new color plays with other shades of blue in the throw pillows. 

If you’re not excited about going to the paint store, come see us at FastFrame instead! Incorporate Very Peri into that gallery wall in your living room (if you don’t have a gallery wall, no better time to start one!). Start by searching for a local artist to support. Most artists have their own websites that allow you to browse their work, purchase, and have the print shipped to you or right to your local FastFrame shop. Next, look through your phone or Instagram for some photos that compliment the piece. Now you’ve got the makings of your own, self-curated gallery wall! 


Very Peri Kitchen

Lastly, let’s take a look in the kitchen and see where to work this color in! Bold color in the kitchen has certainly been a trend as of late, so if you’ve yet to make any updates to your neutral cooking space let’s get started with Very Peri. Beyond kitchen towels and maybe even a new set of dishes, update the backsplash for the new year. We spend so much time in the kitchen (especially the past couple years!), so why not invest in some updates that will bring you joy in the new year!

If you’re left feeling inspired to freshen up your home in the new year, why not start thinking about ringing in spring?!
