How To Use Very Peri In Your Home

Being lovers of home and interiors news, we always eagerly anticipate the announcement of Pantone’s Colour of the Year here at Miller Homes. In 2022, the global authority for colour communication announced its pick of the year: Very Peri, a creative new tone that “brings a novel perspective and vision of the trusted and beloved blue colour family.”

We’re loving this spritely pick and our brains are ticking away thinking of all the clever and creative ways you can incorporate this versatile colour into your life, whether that’s through subtle changes or by going all out and calling the decorators in. Below is our advice on how to use Very Peri in your home.

5 Ways To Use Very Peri In Your Home Décor

Dare for a feature wall

This vibrant blue tone was picked to be Colour of the Year for a reason, it’s bang on trend and a lovely shade for an uplifting and joyous year ahead. Why not encapsulate everything it stands for by going all out and painting a feature wall into your home? The colour code is PANTONE 17-3938, so all that’s left to do is pick a wall and grab a paint pot and a few brushes! We think this will look lovely in your living room, or if you’re feeling even more adventurous – a kitchen!

Accessorise, accessorise, accessorise!

In a new build home, it’s recommended that you don’t paint the walls for at least two years after moving in to allow them to breathe in their infancy, however, fear not, you can still get creative with your accessories and inject Very Peri into your life without getting the dusting sheets out and the overalls on. This handy guide from Stylist features 9 statement pieces that can effortlessly introduce the bluey shade into your décor, and every true design connoisseur knows that one of the best corners of the internet for home goodies is Etsy, just type Very Peri into the search bar and browse the wonderful wares that come up!

Personalise tastefully

Though Very Peri isn’t on our personalisation options list (yet!) that doesn’t mean it’s not something you shouldn’t consider when it comes to making your home yours. At Miller Homes, when you buy your new home with us, we have a wide range of choices to make your space unique; why not choose a shade that either complements or mimics Pantone’s Colour of the Year? You can also explore the options available to you by registering with My Miller Home and using our options visualiser even before you find your new home. You could opt for a lilac / grey / blue toned tile, or something that will complement Very Peri perfectly if you choose to add it in at a later date, such as light mock wooden surfaces.

Pick bold furniture

You may think it difficult to find statement furniture in this signature periwinkle blue hue, but you’d be mistaken! Whether it’s a sofa or a sideboard, there are actually plenty of options for those bold enough. You can find like for like colour matches by searching for “Very Peri” and your choice of furniture in Google, or some luxe companies even release dedicated mood boards and designs based on Pantone’s yearly pick, such as this piece by Furniture Choice.

Keep it low key

Or, if you’d simply like to subtly introduce Very Peri into your décor, then you can do that with more simple accessories, and ones that don’t break the bank too! Think small items that act as the perfect finishing touches in your home, such as scented candles and pot pourri. Many independent businesses take inspiration from Pantone’s Colour of the Year, so think about supporting the likes of those when making your choices.
