How to Mix Very Peri, the PANTONE® Color of the Year 2022, Into Your Home

Pantone Color of the Year 2022

The PANTONE Color of the Year for 2022 is an unapologetically bold combination of blue-violet and periwinkle called Very Peri. You may absolutely love it (we do!) and still feel unsure about how to incorporate it into your home.


SmithHönig’s recent collection, Moxie, pairs perfectly with Very Peri, as do several of our other colorful patterns. We like to think we’re just a little ahead of this trend!


Let’s explore a few ways to play with Very Peri – whether maxing it up or going more neutral.

Zebra Wallpaper, Very Peri Trim

By nature, Very Peri is bold yet still calming. While you may hesitate in painting an entire room in the color, consider a coordinating wallpaper with bolder trim. SmithHönig’s Moxie Lilac wallpaper exudes the same purple tones found in Very Peri. You can view Moxie Lilac’s coordinates in our 2022 Winter Collection.

Embellish Your Walls with Art

Pictured below is SmithHonig’s Bryony Storm Dorian peel and stick wallpaper and Juju Blue aluminum wall art. Various shades of purple flow throughout this moody floral pattern, bringing out pops of Very Peri.


We love the contrast of the blue and white wall art and call this updated guest bathroom a win/win!

Upholster Furniture with Very Peri Inspired Designer Fabric

An upholstered piece of furniture can add much needed drama to a space. The bed below is covered in SmithHönig’s Andalusia Plum fabric by the yard. We paired it with our Bob leopard wallpaper (because leopard is a neutral, right?) and tossed in some fun pillows.

Go Bold and Neutral at the Same Time

Here’s a way to go for those bold purple walls without feeling overwhelmed. We kept bedding and drapes neutral (a natural Belgian linen) and accented with layered pillows in blues and purples! From patterned and solid velvets to pillows with fringe and tassels—there are plenty of stylish options that Very Peri would totally approve of.

Embolden Your Space with Decorative Tassels

For areas of your home that could use a little colorful love, introduce a colorful tassel or two to liven things up. You can use tassels as tiebacks for your drapes, as accents on drawer pulls, or as additions to your hanging planters —the options are endless. Decorative tassels add a touch of maximalism to any space.

Invite Very Peri to Dinner

A new year brings endless opportunities for entertaining family and friends, from al fresco mid-week meals to seasonal celebrations to formal fêtes. Bring Very Peri to the party with our Moxie Lilac fabric by the yard, paper placemats, vintage napkins, and more. See all of our tabletop options here. Bring on the layers!

Stay tuned for more color palette fun. We’re bringing all the color inspiration, playful patterns, and textures to the New Year. After all—who says we can’t?
